Best band this century
« on: December 28, 2020, 03:05:55 PM »
For me Muse would win. Seven albums, all of which I like.

Coldplay went on a good run, but there last couple I have not liked.

Oasis & Radiohead reached their peaks in the 90's.

The Arctics got off to a storming two album start but then became very middle of the road.

U2 have been pretty solid compared to the rest. Five albums all with good moments together with some good stand alone songs.

Oasis split up in 2009. So at a disadvantage!

Radiohead have been more productive than I thought. Releasing 6 albums, some getting critical acclaim.

I'd say Arcade Fire.  Or The Killers.
Not huge fans of either, but Arcade Fire have a strong case.

Arcade Fire without hesitation. Although, to be honest, Iím not very familiar with Muse.

Coldplay had a good run with albums 1 to 4, but since... itís mostly disappointing stuff.

Yeah, Coldplay could also be argued.  I still haven't heard their most recent album which seemed to be released under the radar.

It has a few moments of brillance, but uneven overall.

This was the first time I saw Muse. There was a TV special on them about 2 in the morning I somehow ended up watching. The 4 songs they played got me interested in 2006.

For my personal taste...

Radiohead & The National. Most consistent bands with more than a decade long body of work I know of.

Muse have been in decline for more than a decade, now. Same with Coldplay (although I really like the last one).
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

from this list? The Killers. their first 3 and newest one are stellar. Coldplay has been shit this decade minus the most recent one which WAS good.

Arcade Fire was never good.

i really need to listen to the national.  know i've said it here before, but the lead singer is my buddy's older brother.

This century, I would put Radiohead head and shoulders above over any of that list - and I haven't even listened to a new album of theirs since 2009's "In Rainbows".

For this list i picked Artic Monkees but you make a solid point about Radiohead

if Radiohead were added to the list i would change my vote

and In Rainbows is one hell of an album
