  1. Michael Jandrok Michael Jandrok says:

    Black Sabbath is one of my favorite rock bands of all time top 5 in my personal pantheon without a shred of a doubt Anyone who knows me understands that I am a huge music fan and my enthusiasm for rock music from EVERY era has no real boundaries I always navigate around to the music section of any bookstore that I freuent always on the lookout for a bio or a music history book that might piue my interest So it was with “Rat Salad Black Sabbath The Classic Years 1969 1975” A Sabbath book that I hadn’t read yet? Cool Throw that bad boy on the pileSo I get home with this thing and uickly figure out that I have a true oddity in my hands Author Paul Wilkinson appears to be something of a British Sabbath superfan I can’t find any information on any other books that he has written and the entire effort comes off as a diatribe of truly staggering fanboy excess It’s like that blog post by that guy that runs that obscure metal website that you kinda like except that this blog post runs to 240 pages of often dense and contradictory musical opinion I’m not really sure how this thing even got published since Wilkinson seems to be a rank amateur although I will say that he knows his way around a bit of music theory Now you don’t really need to know the difference between an arpeggio and a chromatic scale but it does help a bit Wilkinson also throws a bunch of autobiographical stuff into the book which I suppose might be interesting if he was anyone of note As it is it’s like heading down to the pub with your friends and bumping into that guy who just won’t ever shut up and keeps on rambling about the “good old days” when rock music was “authentic” I mean he’s not a bad guy he just gets a few black tans in him and he goes off like a rocket and then it becomes a race to see how uickly you can make an excuse to get out of there All of that said I was still a bit fascinated by the exerciseThe basic premise of this book is that the first six Black Sabbath albums form a cohesive and unified musical statement that just MAY be the best six album run in the history of rock music Okay I can play that game But we have to establish a few things first1 We are not going to debate Sabbath’s place as a “heavy metal” band here I could argue for days that Led Zeppelin II not only predated the first Black Sabbath album but was in fact a direct statement of intent than that first Sabs record And let’s not even bring up Blue Cheer The term “heavy metal” was meaningless back in the 1970s It was an amorphous label that was applied in eual measure to bands as diverse as Sir Lord Balti and ZZ Top Sabbath’s place as the originators of a genre is pretty much all revisionism 2 The author limits himself to only the first six Sabbath albums He pretty much slags off “Technical Ecstasy” and “Never Say Die” as substandard Ozzy era records that only served to stain the legacy of the previous recordings To this I say a hearty “BULLSHIT” “Technical Ecstasy” is a perfectly solid Sabbath release that improves upon subseuent listenings and “Never Say Die”well okayI’ll concede that “Never Say Die” is kinda sucky and the Sabs did themselves no favors by taking Van Halen on tour with them but it’s still part of the Ozzy canon and it should get props just for that fact 3 Wilkinson also has no place for any of the post Ozzy Sabbath which is just as well Hell you could write an entire book on just the Dio years much less all of the band permutations that Tony Iommi paraded out under the name Black Sabbath And listen a lot of that is great music but it has no place hereWilkinson sets up the whole analysis with a bit of band biography interspersed with a few of his own autobiographical nuggets That whole “first kiss” thing may have been a bit of TMI but you get what you pay for Nothing much new here From there he introduces each of the first six Sabbath records with a uick snapshot of what was going on musically and culturally around the time of release Then we get the meat and potatoes a thorough run through of each album song by song I personally found it very helpful to listen to each of these albums through Wilkinson’s ears trying to envision exactly what he was hearing and attempting to translate it through my own personal filters He makes a few interesting observations but a lot of this is simply Wilkinson doing a great impression of a trained music critic while trying to deconstruct the catalog of a bunch of guys who were perfectly happy writing odes to marijuana and cocaine interspersed with the odd bit of sociopolitical commentary I could do the album by album critiue for you but do you really need that? No Here’s what you need to know Go out and buy the first six Black Sabbath records yourself assuming that you don’t already own them Listen to them Form your own damn opinions Listen I MIGHT agree with the basic premise that those first six albums form some sort of a unified musical statement that is essentially unparalleled in the annals of rock historybutI dunno Maybe That Stones run from “Beggars Banuet” to “It’s Only Rock and Roll” just MIGHT be better but now I’m gonna sound like that bloke in the pub who just can’t shut up And for the sake of being fair add in “Technical Ecstasy” and “Never Say Die” You really can’t segregate those albums and still be fair to the legacy that Ozzy Osbourne has with Black Sabbath Is this book necessary for your library? Not unless you are some sort of a Sabbath completist I’ll admit that it’s an interesting little piece of work but it’s only as good as your willingness to indulge someone else’s opinions on what makes for good rock music I’d be happy to sit with you over a couple of pints and we could go down that road about Led Zeppelin II but honestly don’t you have better things to do? Conversations like that are strictly for slow nights at the watering hole“Glory daysthey’ll pass you byglory daysin the wink of a young girl’s eyeglory daysglory dayyyyyyyyyysssss”CODA This is yet another of my old reviews that I polished off though to be fair this one never made it into publication anywhere My main advice for anyone who might want to read this book or any book on Black Sabbath for that matter would be to invest in a product from Rhino Records called “The Black Box” This fantastic set contains all eight of the Ozzy era Sabbath releases on compact disc plus a bonus DVD with several music videos It also has an 80 page booklet that reduces the history of the band down to the essentials and includes commentary from many notable Sabbath superfans The discs have all been remastered from the original source tapes and have GREAT sound uality when compared to the previous CD releases of the Sabbath catalog It’s an older set 2004 and can only be acuired on the secondary market but it’s worth your money and time to seek it out if you are truly a Black Sabbath fan I took my daughter to see Black Sabbath on their final tour back in 2016 We saw them in San Antonio at the last ever North American date that the band will ever play It was bittersweet without Bill Ward behind the drum kit but we got 75% of the original band and a couple of hours of majestic music that moved my hardened rock ‘n’ roll heart to tears a couple of times Ozzy sounded great and Tony Iommi was a human riff machine and for that moment in time all was right with the world Forget this silly book and just go and get the Black Box and get your Sabbath on You can thank me laterhttpsenwikipediaorgwikiBlackB

    Picked this up at a record store for 10worth the ticket price At first glance I pegged it as a straightforward biography of my favorite band in their heyday When I started to flip through it I then decided it was like a personal account of the band through the eyes of a superfan Turned out I was wrong twice Rat Salad is a uniue blend of both these genres but than anything it's really a love letter to Sabbath What's interesting is that Wilkinson takes a surprisingly musical approach to his writing He analyzes what makes the songs and band special The grammar of music often takes the wheel; fortunately there's a helpful glossary of terms for us philistines But even with some rather in depth dissection of the songs it's always examined through a passionate lens with uite a bit of humor Dennis Miller style footnotes abound hereStructurally the book has two chapters per album The first one warms us up to current events of the time then segues into what the band was up to at around studio time The following chapter then details the featured album including a song by song breakdown This is where the obsessive fan takes over; even short and bad Sabbath jams get their day in the sun It's cool to know that somebody else appreciates a song like Embryo or Don't Start Too Late as much as you do; in other cases it gave me some new perspective on overlooked entries Even though I don't like Fluff any than I did last week I can appreciate some new things about the tune and those like itThe book was enjoyable overall but tedious at points and prone to rambling I felt like I learned uite a bit about the band's discography but very little new information about the members themselves of course reading several other books about a group will do that to you Wilkinson's own biographical asides were mercifully limited and usually relatable A newyoung fan of the band may appreciate this fact less than a lifer in Wilkinson's stripe He often asserts his own opinions as consensus views which sparked internal debate for me is Sabbath Bloody Sabbath really considered the band's nadir? By whom? Have they heard the aforementioned Fluff?I wish books like Rat Salad existed but contradictorily I also appreciate the uniue personal feel that reading this book gave me


  3. East Bay J East Bay J says:

    Outstanding I loved this book so much and I feel like I've been waiting for it for decades In Rat Salad Paul Wilkinson examines the first six Black Sabbath albums from a music theory point of view while putting each of them into the political social and economical context of the times Of course Wilkinson provides biographical details about Sabbath as one would expect but includes glimpses into his own past as well That sort of thing tends to drive me nuts but in this case it not only works but makes the book interesting His experiences mirror your experiences and his inclusion of these details adds a personal element you can actually shareOccasionally Wilkinson criticizes something about the band generally to great comic effect If Wilkinson wasn't able to laugh at the object of his obsession Rat Salad would not be as goodIt was a real kick to sit down and listen to each album each song as I read about them Wilkinson tackles the task of discussing Black Sabbath's music with eual parts care and delight and his writing is well suited to it Listening as you read you'll hear things in a way you haven't heard them before or maybe not since you heard War Pigs or Supernaut for the first time You'll learn things you didn't know about Sabbath and their music Not knowing music theory I feel I missed out on some of the discussion but there is a handy glossary in the back to explain the terminologyIt's a relief that there is writing of this caliber about music that authors like Wilkinson diligently research something folks like me care so much about get the facts right and put some passion into it Rat Salad is a revelation and a good time all at once


  4. Nicholas Nicholas says:

    A nice short book about the first six Sabbath albums Wilkinson's enthusiasm for the band is contagious and the song by song analyses of each record was a great way to discover new facets of their music Other reviewers complain that he gets too technical in his descriptions but I found that listening to the records while reading the book helped All in all Rat Salad was an enjoyable read that helped me understand the historical and musical context in which the first six Sabbath albums were released


  5. Tim McNeil Tim McNeil says:

    I have to say this is the worst book I've read in a long time I read up to page 180 using sheer will power but I couldn't finish but I still consider that I have read it because if i didn't I would've gone through THAT for nothing


  6. Chuck Chuck says:

    Amateur UK musicologist examines the first six Balck Sabbath albums through the prism of his generally dull personal life For fans only


  7. Seth Seth says:

    I love that this book exists Sabbath's first six records are really the only ones worth listening to and when it comes to good solid critiue this book fills a tragic void Wilkinson clearly loves the band loves talking about them and knows his art and world history in a way that elevates the text to a few cuts above RIP Magazine The personal anecdotes he includes here can be a little awkward but it's a small price to pay for reading such a vital and sadly out of print book Reading this will make you love Black Sabbath even than you already do and that's a pretty remarkable achievement


  8. Benjamin Kahn Benjamin Kahn says:

    Read this awhile ago and I think I thought it was fairly decent although I do remember Wilkinson being very bitter about Sabbath's final two albums and his refusal to discuss them or consider them worthy of the Sabbath name Also I think a feeling of betrayal but definitely a lot of bitterness Since I always liked all eight albums I thought it was a bit much but some people want their heroes to always stay in their boxes Decent read for what it's worth but take it with a grain of salt


  9. Joseph Joseph says:

    Black Sabbath were a phenomenon No other band in the 70s and early 80s conjured up dark and devilish images from a musical artist standpoint than Black Sabbath did Their music was by no means easy listening stuff and although the band members have repeatedly denied any literal dabbling in the occult the general perception was that they were ‘Satanist’ true and through That was perfectly okay in the grand scheme of things for everyone involved with the band – negative publicity was good publicity No?Aside that some of us became sworn followers some of us enjoyed a few tracks of theirs every once in a while We also had those who pretended that they did but remained clueless to the 'genius ness' of the music And then there were those who loathed and despised the Band Honestly real fans like me didn’t really care – to us Sabbath epitomised the music of the eraAnyway Rat Salad was a Christmas gift to me four years ago or there about A family member came across this uniue biography and decided that I’d enjoy it I am a big fan you seeEnjoy the book I certainly did by the way I finished it in one sitting The author Paul Wilkinson is an extremely devoted Sabbath fan no doubt He particularly chose the years between 1969 and 1975 to write about because in his opinion these were the best periods of Black Sabbath I wholeheartedly agreed with him but I also thought the two later albums in the 80s with Ronnie James Dio were brilliant tooNevertheless this bio was towards analysing the songs recorded in the first 6 albums of the band’s career The Band’s history is well known now and countless info materials are available in that regard So instead what Wilkinson wrote about in ‘Rat Salad’ were track by track recounts of the musicianship lyrics vocal arrangements and the like intensely scrutinisedNow before I go further to appreciate ‘Rat Salad’ you or less needed these attributes in my opinion; A true Sabbath fan Like music of this genre – dark heavy and brooding A musician yourself andor understand the terminology Have a PhD in English andor a high score in English 1119Alas if you’re a Black Sabbath fan like me then the probable stumbling blocks with Rat Salad will stack up for you on the musician's jargon used by Wilkinson and his advanced English of courseBy these I mean Wilkinson used words like vituperative; enjambment; mellifluous; crepuscularity; mellotron and etc etc to explain himself And then he further elaborates with terms such as ‘lowered C sharp tuning’ ‘minor tonic’ and ‘subtonic shift’ and so on and so forth to paint the song structures for you Boy these were not easy comprehension for me I tell youHaving said that the author does pre warn you about the book’s content in his ‘Foreword’ section So I wasn’t perturbed and discouraged And I think you shouldn't either because there are good arguments about Sabbath's talent in thisOkay although the primary topic for ‘Rat Salad’ was aimed specifically at the music and their compositions first 6 albums Wilkinson does offer background tales for the albums in uestion and the songs that inspired themHe also cleverly adds the historical goings on of that period; to draw a picture of what the band members and fans alike experienced at that time Events like the Vietnam War IRA and troubles in Northern Ireland America’s space program Nixon’s Watergate scandal Margaret Thatcher and the British politics were significant factors that sort of moulded Black Sabbath’s musical direction and creativity per seThe author also talked about his own childhood and the music scene of the 1970s to add flavour to the book I truly welcomed these fun and fact filled intervals indeed Honestly it made the ensuing tedium of song by song analysis that much bearableSo all said Rat Salad was a fine book and I applaud Paul Wilkinson for this accomplishment I always considered Black Sabbath a brilliant and intelligent band ‘Rat Salad’ cements that for me now These early albums that Iommi Osbourne Ward and Butler gave me were a pleasure then as there are today and will continue to be as the years roll onBy offering the world this analytical study of the Band’s songs in those 6 recordings Paul Wilkinson exemplifies the understated musical genius of Black Sabbath1969 to 1975 were a classic era indeed – it provided a new dawn for the heavy music to come Here's to the blackest of Sabbaths


  10. Lona Lona says:

    The concept of this book is good The author describes every album AND the political and cultural circumstances in the year the album was produced Some infos what the band did at the time because of course that's important for the music too but without making it a biography He writes about every song textual and musically And he made his homework Many contradictions I found in Sabbath biographys are adressed I liked that and felt a little nerdy ButThe author sounds like the typically MrSmartypants In the introduction he writes that he comes from another time where the music was of course better everything was better Today it's not possible to produce good music because there are no revolutions musically AND otherwise And sorry but that's bullshit I know the thought Ah the 70s I wish I could travel through time just to witness them But it's absolutely wrong to claim that all contentual valuable music died after generation XY The book also excludes the albums Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die which are not my favourites but it's a proof that the author prefers his personal favour to completeness Some of his jokes about the band where funny but he really carried it to extremes sometimes and after a while it was a little annoying Anyway the reviews of the songs are interesting but written with a lack of distance I am not far into music theory and maybe I am the problem here But please enlighten me and tell me why Symptom of the Universe is an uninteresting song musically Some songs get labelled as unnecessary I liked that he thematized the cover artThen we have the statement that we can't appreciate an album nowadays because the magic of turning the record over is lacking and people who listen to CDs can't concentrate on the music Yeah nice that you want to empty your ashtray Wilkinson I love to enjoy the whole magic of one album in one row thank you very much Wilkinson also writes about personal experiences like his first kiss in elementary school That would be funny and charming but with all my other points of criticism it's just like he missed the mark He wanted to write a intelligent book for Black Sabbath fans who really are into the music Sadly I can't really take that serious As I said I LOVED the concept and there are many very interesting informations but please take away all the bumptious nonsense It's the same effect like someone always wants to distinguish oneself and takes every oppurtunity to show Oh look how clever I am The person may know all the things yes but listening to them is just not enjoyableI just want a new book written by someone less self publicising who don't act like Mr Generation Black Sabbath even if he was a little whippersnapper himself when Sabbath Bloody Sabbath was released I don't say you have to swallow your opinion and write down what you noticed and it doesn't have to be written with a big distance all the time I like to read the personal opinion of an author but it has to be marked as exactly what it is A personal opinion
