It seems like Porcupine Tree would belong in this lot. Either way I would choose Pink Floyd, but it would at least be a harder decision.

Opeth for me predominantly because of Blackwater Park, Still Life, and Morningrise.

I have a ton of respect for Pink Floyd, and I really like them, but I have never been blown away by their music.

Radiohead is hardly progressive...experimental, yes (and they DID make Kid A and OK Computer) but that isn't enough to compare them to prog bands such as Tool, Opeth, or Floyd...

Tool is comprised of very talented people (even if elitists refuse to acknowledge that due to their popularity) and have made 4 solid albums. They definitely pushed progressive rock/metal into the mainstream, allowing a broader audience to discover bands like Porcupine Tree, Mastodon, Opeth, etc. Lateralus and Aenima are both brilliant albums - I'd say both are better than Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries.

Opeth is a fantastic band - Mikael Akerfeldt is an incredible vocalist. BWP and GR are two amazing albums, but I disagree with those who claim they overtake Tool's masterpieces.

And then Pink Floyd. Why even put them here? There's no point. If it was Opeth, Tool, and Radiohead, there may have been some competition - but putting the very GODS of music in a poll with three bands that made some good music is pointless.

I know this isn't well written, but I just wanted to give my two cents on each of their stances.
Peace

I'd say it's pretty equal for me, throughout all these bands. I've never been a huge Floyd guy and I've really learned to appreciate and respect Radiohead over the years.

Albums like Meddle, Atom heart mother and Umma gumma are next to impossible to beat
... on the other hand...
imagine the poll would be "post-wish you were here-Pink floyd" against the other bands...
I would go for the other three...
Opeth, Radiohead and Tool all showed a great consistency, creating new & interesting stuff along their career without making any bad albums.

But, of course that's not the question

well it feels sort of silly to choose radiohead over pink floyd but at the end of the day, when it all comes down to my individual music enjoyment radiohead IS better. pink floyd is certainly fantastic and superinfluential but i enjoy the musical qualities of radiohead more.

oh yeah, tool and opeth are great too.
