Never really got into Sigur Ros, I love the Post-Rock genre, but somehow I just can't enjoy one of the major founders of the genre. SGM, is however one of the better bands in this tournament. So SGM it is.

I quite like Sigur Ros even though they are a bit of an acquired taste, but SGM are absoiutely terrible. Of Natural History is one of the worst albums I've ever bought.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

SGM are fun and all but I can't honestly say they're better than Sigur Ros.

Like both equally, love neither. Went with SGM because they're losing.

Sigur ros!

Love both very much but I'd be sad to see a band like SGM lose at this stage, so I went with SGM.

I like one of SGM's albums a lot but it's no contest for me as Sigur Ros has several i like even more.

When you've had a bad day, nothing is better than sitting down and listening to a bit of Sigur Ros. I don't think the same can be said for SGM however, and since I prefer relaxing to being agitated (what SGM does to me), got to be SR.

My listens to SGM have been interesting; my listens to Sigur Ros have put me to sleep.  Not all that big on either band, but SGM gets my vote.

Does the singing in songs like FC: the freedom club remind anyone else of Renate Knaupp from Amon Duul 2?
So far, Sigur Ros is winning. But I'll say one thing for SGM. They make you pay attention to their music.
