What does the front cover of "Master of Reality" feature?

Correct! Wrong!

"Master of Reality" was Black Sabbath's third studio album. The first editions of "Master of Reality" came in an "envelope sleeve" containing a poster of the band, and with the album's title embossed in black lettering, visible in relief. Later editions lacking the embossed printing would render the album title in grey, and some vinyl editions feature purple lettering.

On "Vol.4"'s cover there's a picture of Ozzy Osbourne in yellow. This was Sabbath's fourth studio album. On the cover art of "Seventh Star", there's a picture of Tony Iommi.

The "Seventh Star" album was supposed to be a Tony Iommi solo album, but the record company printed the Black Sabbath name on it to be easier to sell it. This was the only album to feature Glenn Hughes on vocals. "Sabotage"'s album cover is a picture of the band members wearing weird dresses and standing in front of a mirror. It was Sabbath's sixth studio album. "Sabotage" is a huge fan favourite; a lot of fans (including me) say it's one of Sabbath's finest works. It includes many deep-cuts like, "Megalomania", "The Thrill of It All" and "The Writ". The cover of "The Eternal Idol" is a picture of a statue of two naked people.
