Really boring round, but since I can't stand Riverside, I'll vote for Sigur Ros.

I don't likes the Riverside... at all. So yeah Sigur Ros is great, one more vote to them.

This is actually a poll where my interests clash. I really like both bands. But considering I prefer brevity over excess, I'll take Riverside. I ignore their new album, though.

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 have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Very difficult, but went with Sigur Ros. They changed the face of post rock, Riverside didn't really change prog metal all that  much, but they are one of the best examples of it.

Sigur Ros is the best of post-rock. Riverside isn't best of anything.

Definitely Sigur Ros. Riverside is great but they can't match the beauty of the greatest post-rock band of all time.

Riverside. My relationship with Sigur Ros has left me somehow quite empty, but I will follow your advice re Untitled 8.

Still, Riverside makes me happy.  Big smile

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.
