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.

Haha, I thought it was on of the best albums of last ten years. Still voted for Sigur Ros though.

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.

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!!!

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.

Yeah Sigur Ros. It's hillbillies that finally swang the vote. Can't stand them.
SGM actually tops The Mars Volta when it comes to annoying ambient bits.

I really like SGM, but I like Sigur Ros more.  Totally awesome and opposite bands.

Sigur Ros for me! I'm not a big fan of the Post-Rock genre but I've heard alot of beautiful music from Sigur Ros. SGM is worth listening to but I find it a bit too weird for repeated listens

A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

SGM for sure, I love their music.

I haven't listened to SGM in about five years, and really didn't like Of Natural History one bit before (I love most acts in RIO/Avant Prog that I  know, and have cited that one as my least liked), but maybe I'm ready to try it again as my tastes have expanded since then..  I haven't listened to Sigur Ros much in the last eight years, but used to like them very much (before I got back into Prog, Sigur Ros was maybe my favourite modern band).  I won't vote before returning to both.

Hard to choose, pretty nonchalant about both bands, and my vote won't make much of a difference anyways.
