  • What's Your Favorite Tony Martin Album

    What's your favorite Tony Martin album:

    1) Eternal Idol
    2) Headless Cross
    3) Tyr
    4) Cross Purposes
    5) Forbidden

    I thought we would have a little fun and establish the "must have" albums of the three Sabbath eras: Ozzy, Dio, and Martin. Once we know the favorite of each era, then we can run the three albums against each other and get a pecking order of the three best albums. So, please look for a similar poll under each lead singer's discussion page.

    For me, this is actually tough, because I think that all the Martin albums are great.....but I'll go with Tyr. 30 days on each poll before we establish the best album from each era.

    This will actually be somewhat useful to all those folks who are looking to broaden their horizons and want to try a different Sabbath era. With any luck, we will be able to give them something informative and helpful.

        I listened to Forbidden while I made up these three polls. Killer. Martin rocks. I really hope that more people will give the Martin stuff a try (for free on You Tube) and enjoy it like we do.

          Forbidden is the least liked Martin album, by the Martin era fans, funny enough it's my favorite Martin/Sabbath album, it's the one that sounds more Sabbath to me than any other Tony Martin era albums. The only turn off for me is Ice-T talking in the song Illusion Of Power, which is one of the best songs on the album.

              Unlike you, I actually love the Ice-T part too.....and the demonic laughing. I can certainly see why it might bug people, but it is cool nonetheless. You have to shake it up occasionally, and that was a neat touch. I agree that Forbidden has some dirgey sounding riffs that are very reminiscent of other eras.

              Each poll closes in 30 days, and then I will put up the 3 best era albums, and we can rank those. Anyone looking to try a new era will have a good starting point.

                I went with Cross Purposes. It's not just my gavoutrite Martin album, it;s one of the 7 Sabbath albums I couldn't live without! Also like Tyr and Eternal Idol a lot, but although Headless Cross and Forbidden both have their good moments there's a little too much filler for me.

                  I have always loved Tony Martin vocal- so much that he is my favourite singer and Tony Martin Sabbath is my second favourite era of Sabbath. Each album is something special, but I do prefer one album a bit more than the others- eternal Idol for its mystic atmosphere and mystic lyrics and because of the doomy title track which is one of my favourite songs ever made.

                    That's a good Idea, look forward to participating in that.

                        I have always felt, and still feel that the Martin-era Sabbath albums were largely dreadful and disposable.

                        Of the lot, I have also always felt that Cross Purposes was at least semi-decent, with a handful of good songs on it. So, that's the way I voted.

                            It's close between HC and TYR. HC has those monster riffs but hokey lyrics. Tyr has some great music and slightly less hokey lyrics, so TYR for me.

                              For me, not even close. I have Cross Purposes as one of the 5 best Sabbath albums of all time.
