Took me some time to listen through the discography of these bands, but in the end I decided to vote for Riverside. I even ordered Out of Myself from Amazon. Good band indeed.

I love both. Sigur Ros' Heima DVD is beautiful, but I have to go with Riverside. The Reality Dream albums are three of the best from the 00s. Also, I think Duda also has Jonsi beat in terms of solo output.
Recent Music Acquisitions:
Johnny Marr-"The Messenger"
Steven Wilson-"The Raven that Refused to Sing"
Fish-"Sunsets on Empire"
Riverside-"Shrine of New Generation Slaves"

Listen to Untitled 8, loud, and tell me one of the greatest build ups of all time doesn't fill your heart with light.

Can't disagree with that.  Love "The Pop Song"!!
Still, Riverside makes me happy.  Big smile

Amazing. Whichever band I vote for, you choose the exact opposite!
 
I guess anyone who likes The Cardiacs and Robert Fripp isn't going to share my taste in a million years.
 
Riverside for me, though some Sigur Ros is wonderful.

I don't really have a music taste, I just hack your computer and see the music you're listening to, and then choose the exact oppositeSmile

Ok, thank you, I think that's the funniest thing that I've seen you post.  Clap

I do my best to bring comedy gold to these forums!
