REM gave Thom yorke the line for how to disappear completely, but besides that Radiohead has been much more solid

Both good bands but i prefer REM's songs. And because i'm of the 'Radiohead are a bit overrated' persuasion.

Radiohead by a mile, but I do really like REM.

Radiohead have much more creative ways of creating atmosphere in their music, and are just plain amazing songwriters. Whether they perform a song with just an acoustic guitar, or a full band with 1000 electronic effects, they always sound original and fresh. There are radiohead songs that NOBODY could have come up with except radiohead

I agree, overall. Have you heard New Adventures in Hi-Fi? It's easily my favourite REM album.

There's a lush, yet desolate sound to the songs. I also think that it represents the band at the height of their experimentation, and in that sense, some of it shares a Radiohead sensibility.

Interestingly, I've also read that this is Thom Yorke's favourite REM album. He's actually performed a few of the songs (Be Mine, E-Bow The Letter) with the band.

is this a joke?

A legend of band vs. a band with 2 great records?

Radiohead have ALOT to prove before they can even be mentioned in the same breath with REM.

This is somewhat reminiscent of the Bono Vs. Moz thread....
and while I like both REM & Radiohead, & think they're both very fucking fantastic bands..

Personally Radiohead hits a spot with me, I don't know what it is....Airbag, Fake Plastic Trees, How To Disappear ( ).., National Anthem, Wolf At The Door, Idioteque, No Surpises, Black Star....that blows me away everytime, they suck me in from the very first note to the very last. Radiohead are one of the few artists in which I have enough interest to know their catalouge inside out, and while I like some songs betetr than others, I never have to press 'shuffle' when I put their entire music on my ipod.
