Well, I don't know if this is done before but if not, this is a really nice and challenging poll. Though Matt is surely highly influenced by Thom and his band Radiohead, but he's got a unique and beautiful voice and can go up to really high notes as well. They are both good musicians and instrumentalists. I wonder about your opinions about this.

I can(hardly) say Thom Yorke.

Of course Thom Yorke.I almost don't like Muse.Very mainstream.

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Matt stays is the same darn over dramatic falsetto register while you get some ascending and descending arpeggiated guitar/ synth patterns on every single song. Sure, he could technically mop the floor with Thom, but that don't mean jack if you don't have the songwriting skills to back it up.

I'd like to see Thom try and play the keys like Matt does on Butterflies and Hurricanes. Big smile
 
Thom is a great artist
Matt is a brilliant musician

Love both but voted for Matt.

Have to agree - Matt is more versatile and as much as I love Thom Yorke as an artist, I actually find it harder to understand what the lyrics are when he is singing. Matt is my pick.

For songwriting alone, Yorke comfortably. Doesn't really matter how much better as a singer or soloist Matt is.

I don't really like either, but I've never felt compelled to stab Thom Yorke in the throat, so he gets my vote.
