But if you like a wider palette of metal, this is really a great disc. The opening four songs are all top notch metal and cover a pretty wide territory. Anno Mundi may be the most 'progressive' song Sabbath ever did. The Lawmaker is fast, has a killer chorus riff, and sounds a lot like something off of Holy Diver, actually. And The Sabbath Stones is a classic, with a pure doom riff changing to a fast triple time outro.
There's a silly little synth orchestration in the middle, then you get another killer pair, the quiet, pretty Odin's Court flowing directly into Valhalla, which is upbeat and almost anthemic, with a catchy chorus you'll scream along too.
Surprisingly good production and high re-listenability value; I've got a lot of spins out of the disc and still enjoy it a lot. More than anything it reminds me of Savatage in the Zak Stevens years, so if you like that kind of metal, definitely check this out.

This album is the third Tony Martin led Sabbath album I have ( Cross Purposes, and Eternal Idol). All of his IRS label releases need a reissue so they become easier to obtain. Read morePublished 11 months ago by John Holt
