    Tyr is a great album.

    Tyr is a classic!

    New Mollo/Martin album was a disappointment, but would still very much like to see him in concert.

    Tyr is a highly underrated album, but my favorite from Martin era will always be Headless Cross.

    Heck yeah! I'd also say "Cross Purposes" is an excellent album.

    Shame few people bother checking them out, of course this whole removing thing doesn't help. :/

    "Cross Purposes" is another underrated gem, Geezer stood after Dio departed, Tony came back and the result is a very good metal album. Sadly they couldn´t keep the momentum and "Forbidden" :puke:came afterwards.

    Cross Purposes does have some very good tracks, but it's a little uneven for me. Never felt that it was quite up to par with Tyr or HC or Eternal Idol

    Thanks for the link, that was a great interview with "The Cat". I've always been a huge defender of the Tony Martin era of Sabbath and consider all that era's albums (with the exception of the last one, Forbidden) to be really good albums and more than worthy to be alongside the Ozzy or Dio stuff.
    In fact (and I know this is blasphemy), when I bought Dehumanizer way back in the early 90s I was actually disappointed that Martin had left and Dio was back since I had absolutely loved Tyr and was hoping for the band to continue along those lines.

    You were not the only one. Even as much as I love "Dehumanizer", I also felt that it broke Martin era which was going really good to that point.

    There were supposedly demos of Dehumanizer album recorded with Tony Martin vocals, but they've never surfaced.
