Radiohead, because REM has gone downhill since Bill Berry left.

No reason to hide. REM is one of the greatest alt bands of all time. Nirvana may have broken alternative into the mainstream, but REM may be the most influential. I just think their current incarnation is boring so Radiohead wins as they are still brilliant.

Radiohead, because I feel they have been consistently brilliant since the release of The Bends. I like REM, just not as much as Radiohead.

100% agree. The last REM album I liked was New Adventures In Hi Fi

This is true, but REM had what 10 proper albums before this happened, Radiohead only have 6...

So only time will tell with this.

No comparison possible. They're in very different leagues.
Both were big in their own leagues.
I think that REM has had its time, despite I like very much their last album. They just turned off the "automatic pilot" mode, but it's one of the greatest bands ever alive.
Radiohead is a band that has no explanation for its courage and grandness, but they're starting to bore me and to eneve me for the lazyness (a la U2) and the exgerated perfection. And I didn't find the Yorke's album no big deal compared to Radiohead's best albums.

Here's where I have to disagree with you, mate. I think Thom Yorke's The Eraser is great and stands shoulder to shoulder with Radiohead's albums.
