Actually I looked over this article today and the riff from 
Eminence Front was listed in the the top 100 (somewhere 
around #20-40 (?), if remembering correctly).

Paraphrasing, they mentioned for the greatest live act ever, 
that EF was mundane, repetitive techno.  It also made a 
comparison of  EF and Pete's writing of it to Clapton's 
milque-toast 80's output like "Pretending" and that when
performed live gave Roger the chance to play a guitar 
bigger than him....

Hey, don't blame the messenger...
