Picking a 'best' Sabbath riff is a fool's errand (there are far too many candidates), but the main risk from 'Under the Sun' is bloody sinister and infectious as hell.

This is going out to the sistahs, we've all been here, haven't we, girls?

No, wait, I have no idea what I'm talking about. But it is a catchy tune.

The answer is 'Symptom Of The Universe'. Plus you get the greatest LP cover of all-time.

I was born in Aston, Birmingham .. I can't remember this but my Mum told me she remembered pushing my pram past the Black Sabbath rehearsal room/community centre or whatever and doing a tut at that "God awful sound" .. she wasn't impressed ..

Nah, Symptom of the Universe might be a 'top-ten' for me, but not in first place.

Off the top of my head, I prefer the main riffs from Children of the Grave, Into the Void and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath--probably more.

I assumed you've listened to the Bruce Dickinson and Godspeed version of that last one?

Oh yes. It's on the brilliant 'Nativity In Black' which is one of the few 'tribute albums' that actually works.

Also includes this beast of a version:

I listened to that album a lot when it came out. Igor's drums on that track are huge.

Straightest cover on there was probably the Cathedral version of Solitude. I was also a big Cathedral fan as a teenager.

In fact, speaking of epic riffs, Utopian Blaster (featuring Tony Iommi) is possibly my favourite track of theirs!
