What's everyone's opinion on TYR?

This album breathes a very special atmosphere. It's almost an organic whole. I have read mixed reviews on the production, but to me it is simply great. There is a balance between every instrument - everything can be heard well. Iommi's riffs, already great on Headless Cross, are back on the level of Heaven and Hell and The Mob Rules. Cozy Powell's drumming is GREAT from beginning to end, I cannot express how much I appreciate this drummer. And we have of course the mighty vocals of Tony Martin! Lyrically the album focuses on religion and myth, both Christian and the old Norse religion, and that concept works fine IMO.

I'm in love!

I thought you were committed to Rob Halford?

I think TYR's production leaves a lot to be desired. It's muddy, it's poorly mixed, and it's in dire need of re-mastering. But I like most of the songs, especially "Anno Mundi" which definitely hosues some quality riffin'

I really think the production cannot be improved, but if a remaster were to be made then I'd love to hear it.

Do you like TYR better than Dehumanizer?

Like Headless Cross, the cd's print on the face part looks fantastic, that's the stuff you don't see anymore compared to today cds. Hopefully they keep that.

I don´t know, bro, the band was virtually broked when they released the cd. I read on a magazine that during that tour, when Vinnie and the Midget were signing stuff after the show, Geez and Iommi were in the bus, waiting for them to go out, just to don't have to look their faces

Like I told before, time and again, Tyr is my favourite Sabbath record of all time. Better than Dehumanizer? Yes. Better than Headless Cross? Oh man, yes. Better than Heaven and Hell? Not by much, but YES!

Well Tyr is a great record and with The Eternal Idol and Cross Purposes makes the three best records of the Martin Era. I love Valhalla, one of the best songs ever made by any band. And tony is playing that on tour!

TYR and Headless Cross share the first place on my Sabbath Albums Favorite list.
TYR is a great album of the greatest.
With a lot of norse stuff.
Anno Mundi: 10/10
The Lawmaker: 10/10
Jerusalem: 9/10
The Sabbath Stones: 10/10
The Battle of Tyr: 6/10
Odin's Court: 10/10
Valhalla: 10/10
Feels Good to Me: 10/10
Heaven in Black: 10/10

Anno Mundi: My first thought was.. no, don't like it.
Second thought was, HOLY HELL that's good.
The intro is amazing, the rest is also amazing.
I loved this song from second thought.

The Lawmaker: blew me away, the powerful drum intro made the blood in my veins run faster, high pulse.
Very cool song.

Jerusalem: Good, but not the best in my opinion.
I love it when Martin start and finish the song with a long aah.

The Sabbath Stones: Cool intro, I love the lyrics, and the way Martin sings "Take need the Sabbath stones" and the guitar solo that begins in the middle of the word "stones" freeze me.

The Battle of Tyr: A short but nice instrumental, sounds like it could fit to a movie.

Odin's Court: This is, due to it's short running time, an absolute beautiful song which really shows the spirit in Martin's voice, and the lyrics is very good to.

Valhalla: Great song with great lyrics.
It's one of my favorite Sabbath songs ever made.
I have only three words to say about Valhalla: Powerful, mighty and strong.

Feels Good to Me: A mighty song, also a love song.
Martin have a great way of using his voice on this song, specially when he comes to the chorus.
Except from the chorus, the lyrics could be a little better.

Heaven in Black: Another amazing great song with great intro, first drums, then the rest.
I also love the lyrics for this song, and the way they're sung.

Cause it's worth it.
Not even the disturbance of my smaller brothers can stop me.

Anno Mundi is totally awesome.
Tony Martin is great in this album.
Best songs:
1) Anno Mundi
2) The Law maker
3) Jerusalem

Is very epic.
