Fairies Wear Boots

afriendlypioneer, Thursday, 17 November 2011 05:34 (eight years ago) link

jack/fairies for the opening riff, the solos, the groove of the fairies part. one of their greatest

War Pigs, followed closely by Planet Caravan, the title track, Fairies Wear Boots, and then Electric Funeral.

Totally "Planet Caravan."

Kent Burt, Thursday, 17 November 2011 14:40 (eight years ago) link

If the debut was polled (has it been?), would the title track win, easy?

Mark G, Thursday, 17 November 2011 14:52 (eight years ago) link

Maybe, but I'd vote for "The Wizard."

afriendlypioneer, Thursday, 17 November 2011 16:01 (eight years ago) link

Planet Caravan or War Pigs, depending on my mood

the MMMM cult (La Lechera), Thursday, 17 November 2011 16:58 (eight years ago) link

In the end I chose War Pigs, but wish I could vote for the first three songs all together.

Hand of Doom

Darin, Thursday, 17 November 2011 18:42 (eight years ago) link

Not sure if I should vote Planet Caravan becauseit doesn't seem like it fits with the rest of the album and yet it is one of my favorite sabbath songs. Almost balearic.

Moka, Thursday, 17 November 2011 21:34 (eight years ago) link

LL otm: War Pigs/Paranoid/Planet Caravan is how you start an album

Thick Gothy (Drugs A. Money), Friday, 18 November 2011 05:50 (eight years ago) link

I went for 'Fairies Wear Boots'. Great riff.

Turrican, Friday, 18 November 2011 10:15 (eight years ago) link

voted for the song with the line' cause smokin and trippin is all that you do, yeahhhhhhhhh

^ truly one of the greatest endings to a quatrain in a rock song ever

wish I could vote for the first three songs all together.

f'real, first is sabbath at their most sabbathy, second is the best punk song by a metal band, third is otherworldly simplicity

Hand of Doom. Though War Pigs is close.

This is pretty much entirely off topic, but does anyone else love "Air Dance"? I couldn't believe Black Sabbath made music like that... let alone on an album everyone told me wasn't worth my time.

afriendlypioneer, Friday, 18 November 2011 16:57 (eight years ago) link

never say die! rules, fuck 'everyone'

mutant slow drum (BradNelson), Friday, 18 November 2011 17:01 (eight years ago) link

I've still never checked out Technical Ecstasy. Is it on that same level? I dunno why I haven't. I love the artwork and I know you can't ever trust consensus.

afriendlypioneer, Friday, 18 November 2011 17:05 (eight years ago) link

the surprise about getting the complete ozzy years box set last year was discovering that they don't really have any bad albums! they all rule.
anyway, for this poll, "war pigs". predictable choice maybe, but that song!

I've never been keen on 'Never Say Die'... 'Technical Ecstasy' has one or two good moments on it. 'Dirty Women' is one of my favourite-ever Sabbath songs, but I don't think they got the best out of it in the studio. The live versions of that track are far superior.

Yes, Air Dance rules. As does Never Say Die, which is pretty popular on these boards to tell you the truth.

Never Say Die the album I mean

Sometimes I think there should be a "Technical Ecstasy" vs. "Presence" poll and then I get on with my life.

Planet Caravan in a walk, for me.

There's already been a thread about this, I think! I think more people favoured 'Presence'...

This dude's a fan of Technical Ecstasy - http://www.popmatters.com/pm/post/151385-black-magic-15-essential-original-lineup-black-sabbath-songs/
