Talk Talk vs. Slint

Really only related because of their influence on post-rock. Talk Talk started as a New Wave band, Slint as an odd post-hardcore band.

Love them both, but Talk Talk has had a much greater impact on my life. They were one of my favorite New Romantic type bands even before they blew me away with Spirit of Eden. I think It's my Life was one of the first 20 CDs I ever bought.

Slint are quite amazing too but I always wished they had a stronger vocal presence, especially since their lyrics can be shockingly good ("Good Morning Captain" is devastating). But most of the time they're just mumbling the words.
