Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

Sigur Rós definetly.

I'd choose one of their albums over Radiohead's entire discography... and I like Radiohead!

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

Radiohead easily. I've listened to most all of the Sigur Ros discography and while I think they are a talented band, their stuff has generally bored me. I'm just not into it. I certainly haven't heard any Sigur Ros album that touches the brilliant Radiohead trilogy of The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A.

11th voter. :)
I like Sigur Ros very much, but PF is a top 3 band for me.

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

Got the polls mixed up....



Anyway, Radiohead is one of my favourite bands mainly because of two albums (Bends/OK computer).

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

I think Sigur Ros is releasing better stuff now but nothing compares to The Bends and OK Computer.

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

Radiohead could play Sigur Ros and make it better.
Sigur Ros could not play Radiohead.

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

Sigur Ros is to post-rock what Coldplay is to Radiohead. :p :p

'Course... Radiohead is to post-rock what Coldplay is to Radiohead... :P :P

Re: Radiohead vs. Sigur Ros

This is actually a really good comparison considering how different they are. I would probably have gone with Radiohead five years ago, until I saw Sigur Ros live a couple of years back. They played in Benaroya Hall here in Seattle, which is the symphony hall. They sounded incredible. One of the best concert experiences I have had.

Personally I like Sigur Ros better, but I enjoy and respect Radiohead as well. Sigur though.
