Of all the bands that have jumped on the reunion bandwagon, very few have made a lasting impression on the musical map; beyond even that, very few are still relevant today. Rightfully near the top of this short list is Black Sabbath. In our first issue, Steve Weatherholt takes an in-depth look at the band and their albums through the Ozzy years, and catches back up with them again in time for their latest release, Reunion.

[ the best and the rest ]

While it may seem passť for many 'zines to publish their yearly "Top 10" lists, we thought it a good way to introduce the writers behind Earpollution - provide some insight into who we are and what we listen to by presenting you with the influential albums and bands that made it on our lists this year; the ones that didn't; the music we can't take stop talking about; and what we look forward to in the coming year.
