If I could vote it would be for Sabbath, they are one of the bands that got me into music, the Ozzy era was almost perfect (let's forget Technical Ecstasy and Never say die). I like DP though, they are on of the greatest bands of rock

When I compare Paranoid, Master of Reality, and Live Evil with In Rock, Machine Head, and Made in Japan (blasphemy, I know), I come off rather equally, but to me, even if I'm no fan of either band, I'd take Sabbath's high end of mediocrity in consistency. For my money, though, I'd take Rainbow's first three albums over all of 'em.

Jack White once said something along the lines of: I don´t trust in anybody who doesn´t like Led Zeppelin. I feel the same way about Sabbath.

^What I mean to say, is that most guys I know either fall into the hip hop - suck it to me genre, or they listen to at least some Sabbath (or Zeppelin for that matter). My point is, everybody likes at least some Sabbath - just a tiny touch of the riff from Under the Sun will do it.
What´s love got to do with it?

I like hip-hop. Er, that was a lie. I love Trip-hop, a lot more than either Sab or Zep. Or, at least I'd take DJ Shadow or Portishead over the two of them, but hey - you're right. I really like at least a few songs from each band.

DJ Shadow is righteous. If you´re into electronic music, do you know The Future Sound of London? They are brilliant and have now morphed into a electronic retro-psychedelic band called Amorphous Androgenous, which is pretty good.

Since I prefer the Coverdale-Hughes edition of Purple, which didn't come into being till the mid-'70s, I voted for Sabbath! Groundbreaking works!

Couldn't listen to Deep Purple for years because of "Smoke On The Water". After abandoning Classic Rock radio, I've made my peace with the song and now I'm a total nut for the band's first two lineups.  Smile

Black Sabbath was a slightly harder nut to crack, due to the whole darkness thing, not to mention that if you've spent your teenage years listening to albums like Sgt. Pepper over and over, songs like "Iron Man" , "Paranoid" and "N.I.B" are going to sound avant-garde in comparison. Still, after looking at this wicked, wciked world, Sabbath's first six albums have aged like a fine wine to my musical tastes.

As for who's better, I'd narrowly have to lean to Deep Purple, mainly because they had a bit more variety.

I'm not mad keen on either, but Purple had more class.
