Album information: Technical Ecstasy

Technical Ecstasy continued the band's separation from its signature doom and darkness that had been such a trademark of the band's early career. While the album's lyrics dealt with topics such as drug dealers, prostitution, and transvestites, the music itself was seldom dark, and tracks like "Rock 'n' Roll Doctor" and "It's Alright" (the latter sung by drummer Bill Ward—a decision supported by Ozzy Osbourne), were very different from Black Sabbath's earlier recordings.

    This is a very good album and has some songs that real Sabbath fans shouldn't live without. I think both it and Never Say Die! are given short shrift by fans and critics alike, which is a shame because they're both excellent. Different than what we consider the "classic Sabbath" sound, but so were Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage and most of us recognize those as kickass records. I like Never Say Die! a touch more than Technical Ecstasy, but both are worthy.

    Doesn't need to hide behind the previous records, totally underrated, has some of Sabbath's greatest songs on it.

    Dirty Women (A), Back Street Kids, Gypsy, All Moving Parts are all at least B to B+ tracks, even by standards set by the greatest band of all-time. Very under-appreciated album
