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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less devil, but more fulfilling Nov. 28 2003

More melodic and diverse than "Headless Cross", but no less heavy, TYR reveals a more suitable musical setting for Tony Martin's strong melodic vocals and is a refreshing diversion from the "Satan" overkill of it's predecessor.
The musical tapestries here are more dense, more textured, and more varied--with one extreme being the doomy metallic bludgeon of 'Sabbath Stones' and the beautiful, melancholy acoustic guitar/vocal interlude of "Odin's Court" being the other.
And, again unlike TYR's predecessor, the phantom of commerciality rears its head on the bouncy-yet-heavy tracks 'The Lawmaker' and the irritatingly catchy 'Jerusalem', although the balladish 'Feels Good to Me' actually won the coin toss for airplay. But even with these uptempo sing-along tunes present, TYR never sinks to the level of gratuitous pop, a credit to Tony Iommi's compositional skills. On the contrary, even the catchiest numbers are quite heavy and worthy of the Black Sabbath name.
The lyrical topics span the globe on TYR, yet the album's centerpiece is the trilogy: 'The Battle of Tyr/Odin's Court/Valhalla', which draw inspiration from Norse mythology--a very suitable subject for heavy metal. Perhaps this album gave birth to the current "Viking Metal" genre.
Cozy Powell still pounds the skins in his own mammoth style here, yet the primary focus on this album seems to be the vocals. Tony Martin really shines throughout as his clean voice is more appropriately placed in the melodic environment which permeates TYR, especially on the aforementioned "Odin's Court".
I'd officially give this 3.75 stars, but round up for Tony Martin actually sounding like he belongs on a Sabbath record.
