    Bluesier than everything they would do after. Definitely one of their best albums, and an LP that's best taken as a whole rather than a collection of songs. The undercurrent of evil, dark atmosphere and magnificent production/engineering (hard to believe this record was made so quickly and cheaply) really complement the playing (Geezer in particular shines) and songwriting. Love the addition of the harmonica, too.
