I'd have to pick "both equally," but get your votes in! :D

They steal initials rather than pineapples.

I voted neither, and then you changed the poll-answers.

This is fraud!

They have some PT songs like Shoot First and some RH songs like...I don't remember, I think it was a song on the first half of Someone Here is Missing.
Generally they are poor man's Porcupine Tree. Certainly not experimental/diverse enough to be compared to Radiohead. I vote for the Tree.

Makes enough sense. Tongue
Radiohead is obviously one of the top artists. I love Porcupine Tree, but I don't think the Thief is all that bad.

Of course I was not comparing them quality-wise, there is no question about that. It's just that RH is difficult to be compared with anything else, since they have released 9 completely different albums.
I like PThief too. I have yet to hear their debut, ATW and Magnolia. Right now I can say that WWHS and SHIM are better than the rest of their discography combined. Also, very bad original album covers for most of them.

Can't be Radiohead, because the Pineapple Thief is a good band.

I find their sound closer to Porcupine Tree than Radio head.

Bruce Soord sings like Amedeo Pace of Blonde Redhead.

(That's a really good thing.)
