** Sail Into The Black from ''Bloodstone & Diamonds'' is the most variant Machine Head song yet, with the first half being a solid 2 with smoke-laden lyrics, piano and foreboding guitar. The second half kicks in and sends things all the way to 7 with the third (and fourth) verse, then simmering down to 5 with the chorus, instrumental and finale.
