No. 28: Black Sabbath – 50 Worst Album Covers
You thought we’d dump on the Beastie Boys? No way (RIP MCA). Listen, we hate to rip on Sabbath, but come on, guys – this is so far from metal it makes us think it’s trying to hipster-y or ironic. Are we being ‘Punk’d’?
They could very easily be wearing women’s clothing. We know, Ozzy is Ozzy, but he’s wearing a cross between a kimono and a bathrobe with construction boots. While all those bulbous camel toe-inducing crotch shots are going on, they throw in a magical mirror that somehow reflects the side facing away from it.
For something so simple, it certainly is complex and makes you think, but with Sabbath we want metal, not quirky cross-dressing sci-fi.
