UK, 1972, heavy metal / hard rock

Black SabbathVol 4: Innocence and faerie tales vs. reality and disillusion. This whole album is the diary of a young man’s coming of age, with all its attendant rebellion against the systems under which he was reared. This is all about the internal changes that come with the cold confrontations a young person must reckon with when becoming an adult. “FX” feels like some kind of calibration, a preparation for the quest that subsequently unfolds, a search to recapture the magic of youth. Serenity follows madness.
