        Ah, Tony's favourite.

        I just stumbled onto this the other day:

        I find it quite odd. Interesting though.

          Tony Martin era

          I have found Sabbath maybe 5-7 years ago. I have always loved Zeppelin, Purple, Uriah Heep and other great british rock band. I have also had Paranoid maybe about 15 years but that was all. Then I found Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and started to collect Ozzy era's albums. Soon I had then all. Outside Ozzy era I knew "Zero the Hero" which I think is great. But then someone said that Sabbath after Ozzy is a joke. Well, I knew that one song and it wasn't a joke. I became curious. I bought some albums from Dio and Martin era. I wasn't blown away.

          Last summer I started a new project. I didn't really know Sabbath. I knew that I love their music but I didn't know what song was what. So, I bought Black Box and really started to listen! I found out somehing that all others already knew - first six albums were amazing, last two had some good tracks. Then I really started to listen other albums. I started with Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules and Born Again. This time I was blown away. The band really wasn't a joke! All three albums were amazing. Much better than last two Ozzy albums. I wanted to know and listen more.

          Right know I'm into Martin era albums (Well, I haven't found Tyr yet, maybe I have to wait limited deluxe edition). Right now I really don't know what to say about them. Eternal Idol really doesn't sound like Sabbath at all (nor does Seventh Star...). They are my least favourite Sabbath albums. Headless Cross has some killer tracks. The song Headless Cross is amazing. The whole album shows how great singer Tony Martin is (well, I don't much care about his lyrics...). Now I have started with Cross Purposes and Forbidden. I don't like Cross Purposes. I cannot find the real Sabbath feeling from there. Forbidden was a nice surprise. A-side has some great, heavy tracks - I rate "Illusion of Power" and "Can't Get Close Enough" as classic Sabbath tracks.

          What I have learn is, that more I listen Sabbath, more I like it. I can't get enough Sabbath! I can't wait to find Tyr. I already know "Sabbath Stones", and it's a killer song. Maybe Cross Purposes also opens up for me. I'm sure it's good album. I just have to listen more!

                I'm revisiting the Martin era from time to time. There are a few tracks I enjoy quite a bit. I'm really trying to train myself to listen as closely and open minded as possible. It's really not taking a full hold of me for some reason and I really want it to. I've tried for many years now. Maybe it's not meant to be but damn it, I'm trying!

                No disrespect towards Martin in any way, incredible singer. I guess it's just not completely for me.

                    Right now as with others I've been listening to SS & EI a lot, due to the recent release.

                    Although I've hit Born Again a bit, given I was asked my opinion on a few things by the record label.

                        For a good couple months, I was listening to mainly Dio-era material. But over the past week or so, I've been listening to more Ozzy-era stuff again.

                            Anyway, back on topic. I mainly listen to Black Sabbath on MP3 while I work out, and just copy the tracks I want at any given time. I've mainly got Ozzy/Dio with a little Martin thrown in. But I'm revisiting Born Again, Eternal Idol and Seventh Star wth the intention of copying some of the up-tempo tracks to my Walkman. So I suppose I'm listening to all eras at the moment.

                              I always listen to the Dio era, by far my favorite. However, I've recently been listening to The Eternal Idol a bit more. It was an album I didn't really like but I've given it a few more listens and have come around to it. Ancient Warrior, Glory Ride, and the title track are all really good songs. Because of this, I've been going listening to various tracks of the Marin era to see if I have a new found appreciation for any of them.
