I like most of the Martin-era Sabbath records, Slayer's Christ Illusion, Megadeth's United Abominations and I think Anthrax's Stomp 442 has some cool stuff on it.
The Angel and Gambler would be a fine song if it was about 5-6 mins long. There was absolutely no reason for that song to go on as long as it does. I've always liked When Two Worlds Collide and Lightning Strikes Twice a lot and i've always imagined how awesome those would be if Bruce had sung on them. Two very good songs either way.
I love all the Martin era Sabbath stuff. Even Forbidden which gets a lot of shit, has some pretty solid songs on it. Both UA and Stomp are pretty good albums to. Anthrax started sounding more groove/nu metal on Stomp, but there are a bunch of really good heavy rockin songs on it that have some great melodic vocal hooks from John and some really good riffs from Scott.
Back to your original post, I do like most of No Prayer For The Dying as well. I'm not sure if they will ever play anything off it again but Tailgunner would be a great choice and I think the crowd would love to hear it. I know I would.
