What an absolute cracker of an album. I am a Sabbath fan and had the first "big 6" and almost didn't buy this album because of the reviews. Well, I must say that I am so glad I did buy it. The album is a little different to the early ones, but so are the Beatles, Stones etc etc. The songs are still masterful and Ozzie is still in great form here. It surely must be one of the most underrated albums of all time. I am just dumbfounded that the reviewer only gave it a 2.If you don't have the album and like Sabbath, you won't be disappointed.
To know how to value this album, must be heard from another different point of view to the heavy metal and take out of his mind the annoying comparisons between different times of Black Sabbath; It is not a 5 stars album of metal, for me it is seen simply as a 5 stars album composed by Black Sabbath.In which they tried to get a little more technical, that not everyone (especially metal fans) was their liking.On this album the band accentuates more experimentation with keyboards, which already came from the "Vol 4" and somehow come closer to the context of the Rock as you can appreciate in songs like "It's Alright" and "Rock 'n 'Roll Doctor " that are not the songs that some metal fans usually hear.The incredible lyrics of Ozzy that touch you in the depths of your being, in songs like "You Won't Change Me" or the passive but majestic orchestrated ballad "She's Gone" and always accompanied by subtle and incredible composition of Butler bass lines.An amazing display of energy with incredible riffs of Iommi as we see in the songs "Back Street Kids" and "All Moving Parts (Stand Still)".And finally the best of the best can be appreciated with powerful riffs, changes of tone, rhythm changes and the incredible participation of the great Bill Ward drums on the songs "Gypsy" and "Dirty Women" where they managed this technical ecstasy who wished to show and that make this album one of the best and most underrated albums of Black Sabbath.
This is up there with their best stuff, I even love Rock and Roll doctor and It's allright the songs that could be considered "different" according to the "critics", The sound of this album is amazing, it has the same heaviness, experimentation and mystique of Sabbotage and Bloody Sabbath, (for me those 3 albums are like trilogy), even has desolation and dispair in songs like She's gone and You wont change me, the album has powerfull riffs and melodies, even the keyboards sounds heavy, so not a weak spot on the album
The best thing you can say about Technical Ecstasy is that it’s a promising album. It’s more active than the boring, ballsy early albums the band released in the early 70’s. Contrarily to this, they haven’t aged well, while this has more solid rhythmic foundation and better riffs in general to boot. “Gypsy” and “Dirty Women” are tremendous highlights that threat to outmatch even the band’s early highlights “War Pigs” and “Into the Void”, while “Rock’n Roll Doctor” is the one of the best songs The Rolling Stones never wrote.There are two main problems this album suffers of. First, the wrong mixing makes the guitars sound lifeless and even pushed down to the mix, while the rest of the instruments feels like they haven’t been exploited very well on the final product, and sometimes it recalls Kiss’ second album Hotter Than Hell when it comes to wrongful 70’s productions: this problem has been partially resolved thanks to remastering. Second, the album’s flow is destructed by a horrible, enormously sleepy pseudo-psychedelic Folk-rock stranger called “It’s Alright”, put probably to show that even Bill Ward could sing. Not that the other two ballads on the record “You Won’t Change Me” (dramatic electric organs?) and “She’s Gone” (pseudo-melancholy Classical minor arpeggios?) are something to write home about, but the previous sounds literally horrible! In short, Technical Ecstasy has potentiality, but once again the focus on it is thrown out of the window, thanks to the band’s weird approach. Not to count the ridiculous album cover.Highlights: “Back Street Kids”, “Gypsy”, “Dirty Women”.
Technical Ecstasy é simplesmente um album que marca em sua primeira audição, tanto pela evolução como pela não conformidade, já como banda estabelecida no Heavy Metal, de experimentar novos nuances de som e não respeitar o status quo da banda. É um album que vai ser apreciado com o passar dos anos. Coloco cinco estrelas nesse experimentalismo de Tony Iommi.
Great underrated album, a mix between Abba, Beatles and hardrock. The critics have wrong.
You cannot make classic albums all the time. Somehow, the seventh studio album was a real flop. I have to say I only like three songs and they are the ballad "She's Gone" and the doomy "Dirty Woman" as well as "Back Street Kids". This sounds like they tries to play faster and faster all the time. But you cannot make good music if you have no good ideas.
I think a good way to deal with the last two Sabbath albums with Ozzy is to take a look at how they stack up against what's out there today. I think some wannabe band would quickly sell their should to Rock And Roll to make an album of even this quality. Like Never Say Die, Technical Ecstasy has it's moments. I did have to nick one half star for the Gawd Awful album cover though. In my option, that is the bands greatest misstep - until Ronnie James Dio.
