Led Zep for me also.  Funny, my favorite single work by Black Sabbath remains the remarkable "Heaven and Hell!"  

I play lots of BS and Led Zep on guitar & bass, and Led Zep shows more instrumental brilliance.  However, I don't know what they put into Iommi's tea during the "Heaven & Hell" sessions, but that is some brilliant guitar work!!  Coupled with RJD vocals, you have magic.  

Not to slight the rest of the Sabbath catalog, I love every bit of it!

Led Zeppelin by a mile! Their music is much deeper and they are absolutely classy and mythic! I like Black Sabbath and I rescpect them but they aren't in the same league.

Oh come on man! I guess you are not familiar with Sabbath if you mentioned these songs.
And tonny's riffing are not alive? Oh Oh!

Oh, I am familiar with those songs, and no matter how many times I hear them on the radio at my other job (those songs haven't got to the point of annoyance yet), they are just ... blah! I don't like Ozzy's voice, ... never liked it, and Tony does not sound as proficient as Jimmy. Of course one need not be really proficient; it's just that Tony ... I just think he can do better.

Iron Man, Paranoid is hardly where it's at.  I have no idea why these songs get mentioned so often...maybe they got a lot of airplay on the radio.  Barring Warpigs and the song Black Sabbath, Master of Reality is where Sabbath start getting interesting at all, for me.

Black Sabbath got more interesting as they went along, pretty much everything is classic but from Sabbath Bloody Sabbath they were much interesting. Songs like Iron Man and Paranoid are just one side of the band, like you can't define LZ with Comunication Breakdown and Black Dog it's just one side of them.

Led Zep by a country mile. I like that Sabbath established a new genre which appeals to me quite a lot, (doom metal) but for the most part their songs are boring and overly pentatonic based, there is just something lacking in the music. Led Zeppelin just wrote better songs ultimately, I'm sure Sabbath were just as experimental in their own way but Led Zeppelin really mixed a lot of different styles and came out with some amazing songs as a result.

^ And does any of it have organ or piano or complex and melodic riffs executed on a guitar with a rich tone?

Come on, Sabracadabra doesn't have piano?  I am guessing you still haven't properly heard Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Sabotage albums.  

As for riffs, LZ's riffs may be complex but they are not very crushing, to my ears anyway.  I like riffs that are really crushing, infectious and immediately arouse the ace air-guitarist in me into action.  If I want complex chords, I will listen to good keyboard music or stuff where they use guitar as an ensemble instrument, e.g. KC, Genesis.

I never said that.

It was a rhetorical question, as if to highlight what Sabbath doesn't have that LZ has in plenty "Do any of those songs have organ or piano or...."?

I've never liked first two LZ albums (exept for the few songs like 'Good Times, Bad Times', etc), and Sabbath's first two albums are masterpieces.

On the other hand, LZ IV and Houses of the Holy are blowing away Vol. 4 and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (and everything else Sabbath ever did). LZ III and Master of Reality are equally good for me.

Sabotage vs Physical Graffiti? Sabotage for me.

On the other hand, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die are nothing comparing with Presence and In Through the Outdoor.

And after 70's Black Sabbath did at least one more masterpiece, Heaven and Hell, and Dio is a hell of a singer, especially in comparison with Plant.

In general, LZ are much more professional band, but sometimes the music of BS I can understand better.

Thus, I really can't choose. So I vote for the third variant, I love them equally.
This night wounds time.
