Normally this would be a space for yet more of my caterwauling, but the Sabbath compilations seem to be following the road less travelled by of late (reviewing in chronological order, I'm up to '96), this album featuring NOTHING from Black Sabbath or Paranoid, one from Master of Reality and amazingly, no "Laguna Sunshine". Odd.

Any compilation of only seven tracks that features "The Writ", "Supernaut", "Sabbra Cadabra", and "St. Vitus Dance" is a winner and a half, but I don't need to spell out that this is seven f'n tracks. I don't what to call this, a song sampler, a practical joke? Where did they expect this to find an audience? Greenland?
