The only thing weird about it . It has the Cross Purposes line-up in the center and cover but no songs from that cd.

Hell I saw that at Wal-Mart a while ago, but I dismissed it because I wasn't into Post Ozzy Sabbath yet! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/doh.gif Damn, I don't have a lot of those songs

Pretty good if you want an introduction to the Martin years.

But now, why do you think this compilation is so weird? Actually is pretty better than 90% of SAabbath's Best Of cds

Other than the fact that it was released only a couple years ago, I'd say... Well, it's definitely not a "greatest hits" CD. It's got songs they never played live, it ain't got _THE_ hits you know, Headless Cross, When Death Calls. Not like this era was a "singles" era anyway, but still. On top of that it says This budget-priced best-of features 14 of the heavy metal pioneers' most popular songs, including "Heaven in Black," "Anno Mundi," and "Guilty as Hell."

Hey, I like them all but they're most definitely not the most popular. What does the record company gets from this? Let's be realistic, how many copies can it sell?

Many, many copies, and you know why? 95% of Sabbath fans donīt know a squat about TM era, so they may look to this album and say "Wow! A new songs cd? I'm gonna buy it!"

Haha, a good one! What if some of the not so bright ozzfest crowd buys the recent Greatest Hits, then this one, he may go like "Wow, there was another band called Black Sabbath!" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Still, The Gates of Hell without Headless Cross and The Battle of Tyr without Odin's Court and Valhalla do seem a little bit weird.

Now We are talking!
I wouldn't call it the best choice of Martin era songs though, but it does rock anyway.

I was thinking about... why, in the name of hell, did they put The Gates Of Hell, and not Headles Cross?????
