    HFT is great, but ATBL is arguably the greatest electric guitar riff of all time.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Out of these choices, its Women in Love. The intro a complete composition. Its like you're getting two songs for the price of one.

    Hmmm, you forgot to include two of their best, HAIL and EWS. That said, Unchained is greater than ATBL. But from this list, the answer is pretty clear and easy. HFT for the win.

    Yeah, I probably should have included EWS instead of RD for WACF. MS, HAIL and Unchained are all worthy entrants from FW.

    ATBL & Unchained are THE most goosebump inducing, for me.

    I went with ATBL, because that was the first and the album version just sounds
    like the future, even today.

    Since Mrs JD brought me out of the stone age and loaded all my VH onto an ipod and gave it to me I've been listening to Me Wise Magic a lot. Man, that is just an incredible tune all around. Intro, verses, chorus, breakdown, solo, outro...

    THAT band needed to put out a full album in 97 or 98.

    ATBL.

    HFT is also blazing, and I do really appreciate how Good Enough kicks you in the chest after Eddie's opening squeal.
