A lot of rock influences, put it in a bottle, shake it up and play it with a little bit of jazz, not bad. 6.5/10

Great sample of blues-rock with huge influence of Bad Company. I love things like this! 9/10.

It's a good rock song. Musically, in particular... melody is nice... but I don't particularly like its vocals. 6.5/10

From the title of the band I was hoping for something exciting in the guitar section, but it was a little predictable and technically limited in the solos. 5/10

Sorry to interject, but I'm not sure if songs should be rated based on if you were hearing it for the first time today, or in context with history and its origin. I think context is important.

Not sure what you mean. As I see it this thread is on subjective test rule, nothing less or nothing more. One rates the song as one sees it not governed by any accepted rules, which makes the thread more interesting...?

You're totally right, man. This thread - it's just about your subjective point of view to the song above. :cheers2
Classic of psychedelic era. Everytime when I hear it, I remember about crazy scene with Jim Carrey from a "Cable Guy" movie. :D 10/10.

Sure, I was just adding a different video of the same song, which I thinks adds another perspective to it. My opinion on the song doesn't really matter, I was just adding another dimension for someone else to consider in a different context, not making any rules or anything.

All on itself's places: suffocating riffs by Iommi, Ozzy's moaning voice and accurately recognizable Sabbath's groove. 10/10, classic. :cheers2
