    Re: Ranking the Martin Era Albums!

    This one is easy:

    Eternal Idol- By far the best for me.
    Headless Cross- Great songs but too many synths in the mix.
    Cross Purposes-Great first half, second half eh.
    Tyr- Good album but not too many timeless or memorable tracks
    and waaaaay far back: Forbidden- 3 good songs and I mean good, not one great one.

    This is a tough one, but I would have to say, for me:

    1. Headless Cross
    2. Tyr (very close second; probably within the statistical margin of error)
    3. Cross Purposes
    4. Tie: Forbidden (has one of the five worst Sabbath songs ever IMO, "The Illusion of Power", but also has a personal favorite of mine, "Kiss of Death") and The Eternal Idol (has a couple of classics, like the title track, "Glory Ride", and "The Shining", but then has some duds IMO like "Nightmare" and "Lost Forever")

    Tyr/Headless Cross/Idol and equal 3 way tie for 1st. Cross Purposes 2nd. Forbidden last (I feel its the poorest Sabbath album of all the band has done. Saw the Headless Cross tour and loved the show at the Tower, a KILLER set list.

    1. Tyr
    2. Headless Cross
    3. The Eternal Idol
    4. Cross purposes
    5. Forbidden

    Tyr is definitely the heaviest album, and almost every song rocks, but the 2, 3, and 4 spots depend on my mood. Headless Cross has a bit of an advantage over the remaining ones, though. Forbidden isn't bad, but lacks a certain signature Sabbath element; not sure what it is, but it definitely goes in last place.

    01. Headless Cross
    02. Tyr
    03. The Eternal Idol
    04. Cross Purposes
    05. Forbidden

    I like Headless Cross, Tyr and The Eternal Idol pretty much equally which makes this ranking pretty factitious. Cross Purposes comes close second to the first three. Forbidden would be, by far, the weakest of the bunch.
