ATYCLB & The Bomb > Reveal and Around the Sun.

Contrary to your perspective, I have never been more disappointed by a band I love than I was with R.E.M. in the 00's (until Accelerate, which was a decent step up). Tuneless snoozefests, both of them, and when you compare them to the two mellow 90's albums you can see the difference.

and your favorite song would be??

I agree with every word written here.

So do I.

The turn of the ol' century was when U2 and REM stopped jockeying for my number one band position, and U2 took over their stronghold on that title.

I hear you, though my hatred for The Bomb runs rather deep, and I'd disagree there. Whereas ATYCLB is one of my top favorite Shuttlecock albums. Still, there are moments on Reveal I truly adore. However, those are the two dark spots on their otherwise illustrious career, and I don't dislike either the way I dislike HTDAAB.

Country Feedback, though it's 4 surrounding songs are all almost equally stellar.

last.fm cannot lie

1. U2 3,805
2. Radiohead 998
3. Bloc Party 965

U2 wins

seriously though, U2 has been my favourite band since I was nine. There are times when I listen to other bands way more, but I recently listened to nothing but U2 for over a month straight

Country Feedback was my wedding song.

I'm divorced now, but that's not the point.

U2 is my favorite band. Fiona Apple is my favorite artist. But if someone said to me you can only listen to/see one of them live for the rest of your life, I would choose Fiona.

If I was to include solo artists, PJ Harvey would be my absolute no. 1. But U2 are still my favourite band after nine years or so. Mind you, in the last two years I've transferred a lot of the obsessive behaviour that was formerly exclusive to U2 onto Muse, but in the end they're still boys. U2 are men,

I feel like many people here - U2 used to be my favorite band until I started to read B&C, use last.fm and read music websites like Pitchfork (yes, Pitchfork, get over it). I have been introduced to too much good music to be able to rank them. U2 is still a favorite, I listen to them frequently and probably won't have the same type of emotional attachment to any other band (nor knowledge of the band's history, for that matter). But as of lately, my favorite bands are Radiohead, National, Wilco and Andrew Bird.

My last.fm top 10 from the last year:

1. R.E.M.
2. The Flaming Lips
3. Okkervil River
4. Pavement
5. The Beatles
6. Explosions in the Sky
7. The National
8. The Shins
9. Ben Harper
10. Built to Spill

Ben Harper comes in at a close 11th.

I look pretty indietastic from that list though.
