Damn right safe seach is off.
I feel like the media often portrays Black Sabbath as those "regular Jack & Jerry" types, that were all into it but, let's face it, just not that good. They were, after all, average blokes.
I think that what these critics fail to point out (or stress, maybe) is that these were not untalented blokes, be they as they were from a working class background. (Maybe, also this makes them all the more kickass? What with Iommi losing the tips of two of his fretting fingers in an accident at the sheet metal factory he worked at? These guys were destined.) They were all first-rate musicians, without a doubt. This virtuosity is showcased on every one of their albums.
Whew, OK. That rant is over. Thanks for indulging me, oh blank reptile stare of the internet. It's a Monday night, and I'm rockin' out to album one.
