Tyr is an enjoyable disc from Black Sabbath. It was released in 1990, and the material is in a hard rock musical direction. Altogether, the songwriting is solid, the musicianship is tight, and the sound quality is pleasing. There are nine tracks. The song lyrics deal with Norse mythology. I find Tony Martin to be an impressive vocalist; his voice works well with the music. Tony Iommi does not disappoint in the guitar department, and Geoff Nicholls' keyboard work is appealing. Even though I think that all of the cuts are satisfying, the ones that I consider to be favorites are "Anno Mundi (The Vision)," "Jerusalem," "Valhalla," and "Feels Good to Me." "Anno Mundi (The Vision)" is stately and gothic. Cozy Powell kicks off the medieval-sounding "Jerusalem" to a memorable start with a cool drum intro--this tune also displays an engaging, soaring chorus. The hard-driving "Valhalla" sports taut rhythm guitar playing from Iommi, a notable, majestic chorus, and spirited singing from Martin. "Feels Good to Me" is an attractive piece that features industrious vocals from Martin, a nice chorus, and a gratifying guitar solo from Iommi. I like the creative album cover artwork. The disc is just over 39 minutes. Tyr is a recommendable piece of work from Black Sabbath.

Yep, it doesn't have much to do with Ozzy-era Sabbath, so if that's all you're looking for, you can pretty much disregard it.
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.

First off, let's get this out of the way...as you should know, this is not an Ozzy with Sabbath album. In fact, it's not even any of the original Black Sabbath members besides Tony Iommi. So sure, maybe this should have a different name than Black Sabbath but that doesn't automatically make this a bad album no matter how you look at it. The album starts out with the epic track, "Anno Mundi" (my personal favorite track on the album) which greatly shows vocalist Tony Martin's incredible ability. The tracks that follow keep the intesity especially the powerful "Law Maker" as well as "Valhalla"; both of those tracks are extremely catchy and will be stuck in your head after a few listens. Most incredible about this album though, more important than the catchy lyrics, would be the incredible musicianship. Tony Iommi, as always shows such innovative guitar work and Cozy Powell's drumming is stellar. The keyboard and bass are incredible as well, and Tony Martin's vocals on this CD prove how truly under rated that he is. The only downside is that this CD for the most part does not sound like Black Sabbath, and Sabbath purists may be disapointed by this. The whole gothic sound of the group is pretty much gone from Tyr. Tyr sounds more like an Iron Maiden album than a Black Sabbath album, but that doesn't take away the fact that this is an awesome listen. On top of this, the album is very cheap and well worth the few bucks. Open minded metal fans, this is a great addition to your collection.
