I was torn between the strokes and the hives..I love is this it and veni, vedi, vicious. But as an album Is This it is better to me..so the strokes got my vote. Julian and Pelle are both hot though

alright Ive thought about it..

it's a 3-way tie: Doves/Coldplay/Electric Soft Parade

Remy Zero aren't all bad, I like the Golden Hum
i bought an earlier album which has never grabbed my attention if that says anything for it

Better that than a band of deathbears, which, from the sounds of it, is already underway.

elbow and doves get so much attention from the ladies here that it turns me off and i automatically hate them before i will even get the chance to hear them.
Okay, Zoomerang, do your self a really big, big favour: take the ladies out of the equation. Totally. Just remove them from the entire context of these two unbelievable bands. You'll be rewarded by some extraordinary music. You thought Radiohead took it to the next level on Amnesiac? Try listening to Asleep in the Back by Elbow. And you thought no one made music in the same league as U2's Unforgettable Fire to Achtung Baby period anymore? Try listening to both Doves albums. As for Doves, I suggest you download 'The Cedar Room' first, and then some of these... 'Here It Comes', 'Sea Song', 'There Goes The Fear', 'Satellites', 'Pounding', 'Catch The Sun', 'Words' (this last one is almost in the same vein as 'Streets' -- big anthem rocker). But your best bet, really is to listen to both albums, entirely. The first album is more ambient, slightly more "arty". The second one is more catchy, a little more mainstream, but both albums have unusual song structures that meander their way into something completely different from how they start.

I voted for Doves, btw.

I think Doves has some great music. I've turned a few people at work on to them.

Elbow is good, too.

I am surprised that Coldplay has so many votes, not that they are bad. I just don't find them very unique.

My $ .02

I agree about Coldplay, and I think they are highly overrated, they're a decent band, but I've been listening to their new album and it's a bit underwhelming, a few excellent new tunes, but overall not very inspiring

off your list, 'the Strokes' and 'Doves'.

'Clinic' would be higher except for the fact that they look like a bunch of benders playing on stage, and 'BRMC' is way too derivative, imo, and in a much more aggrivating way than 'the Strokes' may be.

not from your list, 'Hot Hot Heat's' EP is f'ing excellent. check out "5 times out of a 100." Also, 'And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead' ("How near how far") is damn good, as are the 'Liars' ("Grown men don't fall in the river, just like that").
