Album Review

There was a 13-year break between Tony Martin's solo albums, 1992's Back Where I Belong and 2005's Scream (during which time Martin signed on for another go-around with Black Sabbath, before being replaced by none other than Ozzy Osbourne). As a result, if you listen to both of Martin's solo albums back to back, you could very well be fooled into believing you're listening to two separate artists — one a mainstream '80s-esque rocker (Back Where I Belong) and the other a heavy metallist who leans toward the Sabbath side of things (Scream). In fact, the only similar element between the two recordings is that former Sabbath keyboardist Geoff Nichols makes a return appearance. Things are certainly toughened up throughout Scream, as evidenced by such headbangers as "Bitter Sweet," "Faith in Madness," and "Field of Lies," all of which would have fit snugly on any of the Sabbath albums that Martin sang on back in the day. Another track, the album-opening "Raising Hell," contains parts that bear a resemblance to Rainbow's "All Night Long," and also features the late great Cozy Powell on drums (Cozy's drumming parts were utilized from an unused song Nichols penned earlier for Sabbath). Scream is certainly a stronger effort than its predecessor, and contains the heavy metal style that you would associate with a former singer of Black Sabbath.

Customer Reviews

Tony Martin Returns!!!

Tony Martin is back with some great tunes on this album: field of lies, bittersweet, faith in madness. This is a great sequel to the all-time best Sabbath albums: Headless Cross and Tyr, both of which Martin sculpted and wrote the lyrics for. If you are a fan of melodic dark metal blues, this album will be an essential part of your collection.

Former Black Sabbath singer

Excellent CD! Brings together the best of his solo work with Black Sabbath. For those looking for other music try Black Sabbath The Headless Cross, Tyr and my favorite Cross Of Thorns.

Very Coolz!!!

Some really good tunes. Great to hear TM in such fine form....

A popular crooner of the 1940s and '50s, Tony Martin's deliberate delivery and romantic ballads were more in keeping with vintage movie musicals than the currents that would shape the pop music of the last half of the 20th century. Taking his inspiration from singers like Russ Columbo, he had already been in some Hollywood musicals by the time he made his first hit record in 1938, "Now It Can Be Told" (with the Ray Noble Orchestra). Drafted into the Navy during World War II, rumors that he'd bribed...
