4 stars Dang it all - new line up again - at least Tony Martin's back. I love the track "Cross of Thorns" and I immediately forgive Tony for the confusion of what may come next on future albums - I'm thinking maybe Robert Plant hahaha. Is it me or is Martin just really going through the motions here on the album? Love the track "Dying for love" as well. "The hand that rocks the cradle" - another track that appeals to me. Aside from the tracks mentioned above as well as "Cardinal Sin" nothing else really catches my attention or appeals to me over much. There is a lot more "melody" on this album than there is on the previous release and I enjoy that side of the album. Please Tony, keep the line up this time for the next release! This is the best of the Martin fronted Sabbath albums imo. Three and a half stars boosted to four for the melodic, emotive side of the album.
