3 stars Tyr is the fifteenth full-length studio album by British heavy metal act Black Sabbath. The album was recorded between january 1990 and June 1990 at Rockfield and Woodcray Studios and saw a release through the I.R.S. label on the 20th of August 1990 in the UK and on the 31of August in the US. It´s now the third album in a row with vocalist Tony Martin fronting the band.

The musical style is pretty much the same as on the previous two albums The Eternal Idol (1987) and Headless Cross (1989). Heavy metal with an epic edge. The music is heavy but the keyboard backing by Geoff Nicholls means that the music has a softer edge at times. As always ( well almost always) the compositional level is high and the musicianship is excellent. Tony Martin is an outstanding vocalist and Tony Iommi´s heavy riffs define Black Sabbath´s sound. This isn´t the most revolutionizing music in the world but it´s certainly enjoyable.

The production is the best production on the three late eighties Tony Martin led Black Sabbath albums IMO.

Tyr is a good Black Sabbath album and I must admit that I´m a bit of a Tony Martin fan. Tyr is not my favorite album by the band ( I´ll always prefer the Ozzy and the Dio led albums) but it´s a sure 3 star rating in my book.
