What is the most commercially sounding album by Black Sabbath?

    Black Sabbath was in existence for about 40 years. Over the course of that time, popular music changed again and again. They were releasing records during the disco era, through the heavy metal years of the eighties and nineties - while glam metal, thrash metal, death metal, black metal, and nu-metal were vying for dominance, they were releasing records while alternative and grunge were all the rage, while rap and hip hop and R&B were topping the charts, and they were releasing records while rock morphed and changed into the soulless, spineless rubbish it has become today. Black Sabbath changed their sound at several different points in their career. Sometimes those changes worked out well, and sometimes they didn't. The shift in gears between "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and "Sabotage" was a positive one, but the changes made to their sound on "Technical Ecstasy" and "Never Say Die" weren't all that well-received. "Heaven and Hell" wasn't so much a return to form as it was a reinvention of the band's sound. "Seventh Star" isn't even a real Black Sabbath album, but that would be the one to get my vote if we're looking to name the one record released under the Black Sabbath name that was strictly about appealing to a wider audience.
