While never a top tier choice I do find the T Martin era Black Sabbath a magnificent distraction and a satisfying change from the norm :) Much like the Queensryche classic lineup catalog, there's something new to discover with each listen to those Martin records!

And as big a fan of Ray Gillen's vocals as I am, the excellent Eternal Idol Deluxe (probably my fave of the T Martin era) proved Martin was the right man for the job so any suggestion he was screwed over by the execs is sad to hear. Sadly ignored by the masses at time of release, in my books Cross Purposes is on par with Headless Cross and Tyr and would probably pit this one a close second to Eternal Idol Lynch, and all have only improved with age!

Good call Lynch I concur. Really hoping Tony L stays true to his word and gets the entire era remastered and Deluxed \m/
