Tony Martin era Sabbath

Sucks that these are basically no longer available for purchase especially Headless Cross

Tyr has some jams. Here's how I see it.

1. Ozzy
2. Dio
3. Gillan
4. Martin
5. Hughes

Yeah, they are pretty much impossible to find at chain music retailers, or even most independent shops. If you want them you either have to dig in used bins for them (how I got all of mine) or order them online. You can get them all from Amazon new and used, but they won't be cheap. Not saying they're ridiculously overpriced, they're just not cheap.

Gillan better than Martin? Are you serious? Born Again is terrible, in my opinion of course.

I like Born Again too, but my ranking would be:

1. Dio
2. Ozzy
3. Martin
4. Gillian
5. Hughes

And yeah, it sucks how hard to find the Martin albums are. I've got all of them except Eternal Idol though. I found Tyr, Cross Purposes, and Forbidden new at FYE (although it's a huge and very awesome FYE, not your average one in the mall), I found Headless Cross used at a local record shop, and I got Cross Purposes Live and The Sabbath Stones off ebay.

I hoped this wouldn't turn into a "Durrr which era of Sabbath is the best" thread, but since it's going that way, I might as well throw in my opinion.

Dio and Tony Martin eras are BY FAR my two favorites, head and shoulders above the rest. The other three are probably ranked about the same. I don't want to shit on the Glenn Hughes stuff because I think he's technically probably the best vocalist Sabbath ever had, it's just not that great of an album.

Forbidden and Eternal Idol are no problem here.

Tyr, Headless Cross and Cross Purposes are impossible though. Mostly because the two-bit label that last licensed them is long out of business.

I got Headless Cross while it was still available many years ago, but missed out on the other two.

LIVIN' ON DA STREETS, I'M NO STRANGER TO LOVE!

Seventh Star wasn't even meant to be a Sabbath album, the record label made Iommi put the name on it. The two other albums that Iommi and Hughes did are pretty good though.

I can't even remember where I found "Eternal Idol." Either Tracks or FYE.
