Sigur Ros for me. Some Bjork works are really interesting (same with Radiohead)

I've not really heard enough Sigor Ros to vote, but what I've heard leads me to believe they are potentially a far more creative and interesting act than either Bjork or Radiohead, althoguh I have some time for them too.

I need to check out more Sigor Ros..

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

i do really like radiohead but honestly Sigur ros is just beyond HUMEN beyond just a band their creative and the best thingg about them is their music is so long but only feels so short when yu really get into it(:

dont get me wronge radiohead is creatvie and is indeed mainstream in their genre but

sigur ros is not mainstream but open alot of peoples heart and most intportly open their EYES(:

i love music .i cant compare this beatiful music i also really love  Bjork abulm post <3

theyre all good but

im going with Sigur Ros (:

onlyy the weak minded wont see any beauty in music like these 3 band/artist. (8

Bjork, just ahead of Sigur Ros.
Bjork has been the most consistently interesting for me; not everything has been successful but she can't be accused of repeating herself too much.
Sigur Ros have been much more consistent, but like a few other post rock bands they're also a bit predictable.
I can understand why people like Radiohead so much, but they don't float my particular boat.

Love the first two and was just recently introduced to Bjork.
I'm going to have to choose Sigur Ros, they really create an atmosphere that can't be beaten.

Sigur Ros is great but I think Radiohead wins me on this one.

This is such a close tie for SR and RH for me, they being two of my favorite bands of all time. Bjork is great too, just not that close.

Sigur Ros are a touch airy fairy for my liking.

Bjork, she's unique but how much can one take of her?

Bjork, the non-boring option.

Bigger on the inside.

Sigur Rs are a bit boring. Bjrk's voice I can't stand, it is so blatantly pretentious. Radiohead on the other hand is the most progressive band of our time.

I can`t stand what Radiohead has become since Kid A, but Th Bends and OK Computer are untouchables, amazing albums!

All 3 are pretty boring, but Radiohead is the only one i like, atleast they made some good albums(bends, computer and kid A). But thire last ones have not been much to jump and shout about. Sigur ros is one of the dullest bands i ever heard, havent been abel to listen to a whole album so far i yust falls alseep, and bjrk i dont realy know, the stuff i have heard havent clicked with me realy.

But.... but what about Creep? Such a damn good song.

Honestly I think Creep is their worst song. In fact all of Pablo Honey is just garbage but they made it in the days when they were trying to sell out and make MTV friendly hits thus the poor quality of the music. It's so pathetic how there are still people that only respect them for that one overplayed song. I'd be glad if they never played it again. Otherwise they're total geniuses.

I know exactly what you mean. I don't really care if an artist is trying to market him- or herself as "creative" or "original" or "avant-garde". To me, it just sounds bizarre and and unpleasant. 

Sigur Ros is much more orthodox and orderly, but, to my ear, it lacks drive, saturation and structure. I'd expect music to be a lot more than a sequence of nice sounds.

I am not a great admirer of Radiohead either. I can't quite come to terms with Thom Yorke's manner of singing. But, out of the three acts listed in this poll Radiohead is probably the only band, whose place in the prog hall of fame couldn't be contested.
