3 stars Last Black Sabbath album with Tony Marin named Tyr from 1990, 'till his return to sing on Cross purposes from 1994 and Forbidden from 1995. While this album is not bad at all, really, some great moments like Anno Mundi, Jerusalem, the excellent The Sabbath Stones shows that Black Sabbath is still alive and doing well, because the competitions in the '80's and early '90's worth mentioning, bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, overshadow bands reputation, who for some reason never gain that big aplauses from Ozzy era or Dio. Neverthe less some good to great albums were release by the band in the'80's like The iternal idol and Headless cross, two great works with a lot to offer for Sabbath fans and not only. Now this album brings nothing new in bands career, nighter the sound or manner of intepration, still the same, but not bad, really. A pleasent alvum, well not better than headless cross for sure and not better than Cross purposess but still enjoyble most of the time. Iommy use to change the line -up on every record released, on this one he kkep the members like on previous album, and to tell the truth , a strong and damn good musicians. All in all a 3 star album for me, good one no doubt, but not really special, I prefer with Tony Martin albums like Headless cross or Cross purpossess. After this one Martin leaves the band or better said he takes a vacantion, replaced by anothe monster vocalist Dio, he will return in fall of 1993 to record another great one with this legendary band Cross purposess.
