Sigur Ros is what GY!BE would sound like with condensed songs and a high-pitched icelandic vocalist Geek
 
Anyway, I prefer Godspeed, if only by a bit.

Sigur Ros. At first I was knocked out by GY!BE and rather less impressed by Sigur Ros, but I now find that Sigur Ros stand up better to repearted listening.

Agaetis... and LYSFLATH are two of the best albums i have ever heard...

Sigur Ros take my vote though for the rest of the discography is better than Yanqui and F#...

I used to listen to post-rock almost exclusively but know i can't stand that sadness and melancholia. Nevertheless GY!BE still is one of my favourites. So, I voted for them

Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Lift Your Skinny Fists is possibly one of the top Post-rock albums ever made. As good as Sigur Ros are, they just can't compare.

Sigur Ros are the kings of post rock. They're much more enjoyable to listen to. Their melody can not be topped. Sigur Ros all the way.

Godspeed wins this one by default for me; I find their music kind of boring, but unlike Sigur Ros, I can actually sit through an album of theirs.

Sigur Rós is a good band, but Godspeed You Black Emperor simply released nothing but masterpieces. That's impossible to beat.

GYBE is really great in a certain mood, but Sigur is pretty much the best band around. I absolutely love them with all my heart.

GY!BE wins easily for me... but I got "Heima" DVD today and you can count me among SR fans too after the very first spin

Maybe it's time to resurface the ultimate post-rock thread Wink

As a newbie to this genre who started with these two bands, I prefer Sigur Ros slightly more... although I don't consider these bands remotely similar, as Sigur Ros is much more rooted in alternative rock, and GY!BE is more avant-oriented (and you know; entirely a matter of tastes here). Both great bands though...
The best you can is good enough...
