Two great songs that contain stacks of cool riffs are Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and War Pigs by you know who...

Some of the best riffing albums: Pornograffiti, Blizzard of Oz and Diary of a Madman...

All of that whole album has great rhythm playing, even underneath spectacular soloing as on Mean Street. EVH was and is a totally great rhythm player as well as the all round total package rock guitar player.
