Pick your favorite. And please don't start with the annoying "Radiohead are not prog". You voters were the ones that decided they reach this far on the competition.
 
World Cup so far:
 
 
 

Deadline for this poll: October 21st

Thousands of bands copied their sound from The Bends and OK Computer, but Radiohead chose to be artists and went on to create two totally unique albums which is Kid A & Amnesiac (good luck with copiyng that Coldplay/Keane/Travis/Muse and the rest of all you dullards). That they've somehow continued to stay within the mainstream, get airplay and sell millions of albums and concert tickets is more or less a miracle.

Phideaux.. huh? I don't mind them or anything, but its just another rock band.

Phideaux is easily one of the most talented of latter day prog artists/bands.  Radiohead leaves me kind of cold, so this was an easy choice for me. 
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Radiohead!

"Phideaux.. huh? I don't mind them or anything, but its just another rock band"

Not sure if sarcasm or trolling or real opinion...

I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

wow, Phideaux is actually leading. I can't say that I'm a big fan of them. But, they have made enjoyable albums while I really can't enjoy anything that radiohead has done. And, tbh, I might seem like a hater for writing this, but I'd happily see Radiohead fall out of the competition.

My opinion is that (although prog rock) Phideaux sounds like lots of rock music I've heard before. While Radiohead, like the prog of the late 60's early 70's brought us something people hadn't actually heard before. How is that trolling or even sarcasm? It was not even meant to be particulary insulting.

I do expect this to be an interesting poll though you have one retro band and one band thats highly controvercial, this should get heated!!!

Definitely Phideaux. I consider Radiohead to be the most overrated band of all time.

Radiohead from what I know, but I don't know Phideaux well enough to vote fairly.

Radiohead is a good alt. rock band with prog elements while Phideaux is definitely one of the best bands nowadays. Therefore, Phideaux would have my vote (unfortunately, I cannot vote in poles).

I've been listening to music of both on youtube since I don't know either really well, but I can say that while I can enjoy Phideaux (though it generally sounds rather too derivativeto me, but accomplished), I am much preferring Radiohead.
