Considering that Tony Iommi is the sole remaining member from the classic Sabbath lineup, it´s not surprising that the centerfold of the CD booklet finds him sitting alone in his black Porsche. Changing personnel more times than Spinal Tap changed drummers, Iommi was determined to keep the Sabbath name alive in the metal-friendly late ´80s. 1987´s "The Eternal Idol" is a powerful, if uneven, record. Tony Martin´s strong vocals, along with Iommi´s melodic riffing, carry the album throughout.
