2. Black Sabbath 13 (2013)
Heavy metal patriarchs Black Sabbath began recording with avowed fan Rick Rubin in 2001 but the album got derailed when The Osbournes reality TV show became a major hit and the rest of the band went on tour with early 80s singer Ronnie James Dio under the name Heaven & Hell. When they finally got back together in the studio in 2012, former Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk had replaced founding member Bill Ward on drums, angering many fans. That didn’t stop them though from buying the new album in droves when it was finally released earlier this year, giving them the number 1 album in Canada, the U.K. and on the Billboard album charts in the U.S., the first Sabbath album in their long career to do so.
