        1. Cross Purposes - someone in a previous post mentioned Geezer's presence helping out. I whole-heartedly agree. One of the few albums (Sabbath or otherwise) that I love every song on. Cross of Thorns is amazing, I Witness is a great opener, Evil Eye. And of course, Dying For Love. I'm normally not a love-ballad-dy type of guy, but Martin really makes this a classic.
        2. Headless Cross - some great, catchy songs. Kill In The Spirit World is an underrated classic. Only complaint is that it's too short - why couldn't they include Cloak & Dagger???
        3. Tyr - Another great album. The Battle of Tyr/Odin's Court/Valhalla medley is amazing. Sabbath Stones and Anno Mundi are absolute classics. I just wished they replaced FG2M with another song because it disrupts the flow and continuity of the album.
        4. Eternal Idol - Tony does a good job, considering the album/lyrics weren't written for him. First TM album I heard, and was blown away by his voice, so this one has a soft spot for me. I'd still love to hear Dio's take on Lost Forever though...thought it would have made a great concert-opener.
        5. Forbidden - ahhh Forbidden. Poor, misunderstood Forbidden! LOL I like this album much more now then when it was released, but still doesn't measure up to the first 4 TM albums. IWC4Y, Rusty Angels, and Forbidden are all good tunes, but the standout for me is Kiss Of Death. Amazing amazing amazing song!

                        This was hard (except for Forbidden). This was like asking me to rank my children...LOL

                        I am a big fan of all of these CD's, just like some a bit better than others.
