Just off the top of my head, I'm not even sure who made either of those albums.


The Pixies did Doolittle, and The Bends was Radiohead. I'm guessing you're probably not a fan of either.


You'd be right, but I'm also not familiar with either of them.

I have at least heard of Radiohead. They and STP both had that "Creep" song out at about the same time if I remember right.

Surprised to see Tool about to get bounced by the Pumpkins here...

Doesn't Tool have Aenima in this as well? I'll probably support Aenima.

There's still time for Tool to pull this one out.

But I won't be too disappointed regardless of who wins this one. Both are quality.

Lateralus and Tool are still way under the radar compared to Pumpkins.

Lets match them upl

Lead Singer / Lyricists: Push

Guitarist: Tool

Bass player: Tool

Drummer: Tool

Technical ability: Tool

I like the Pumpkins though so I wouldn't be horrified if this beat Lateralus just on name alone


ACS, are you trying to be modest or something? MJK vocally kills Billy Corgan.

There is no way that this should even be close. Lateralus is in my opinion one of the best rock albums of ALL TIME. I will honestly be stunned if Lateralus get's bounced this early.

Its an amazing Album...Maynard is better then Corgan but I think corgan does a great job too. Its the only comparable area for the two bands.

Lateralus is a bit under the radar.

Aenima would crush this

When you put out a double-disc 2 hour+ recording you are bound to hit on some of the songs when you have the talent the Pumpkins had. Lateralus has just as many great tracks packed into 1 disc. For as much grief as Tool gets for filler tracks, Melon Collie is overbearing in that regard. This would be a much tougher matchup for me personally if it was Siamese Dream vs Lateralus.
