Default Pixies Vs. Dinosaur Jr.

They were both around at the same time, both heavily influential on modern alternative and both kind of nerdy . Who do you like more. i like pixies more because i am still struggling to find a song i dont enjoy and several other reason.
Vote and explain why you think so.

Pixies for their simple sound, great voice, and just better music.

I find that I prefer the depth of Dinosaur Jr's writing to the simplicity of The Pixies. The songs are busy sounding yet very mellow which makes it kind of trippy sometimes.

Taking the Pixies track by track, they can seem kinda average at times as their songs work on a simple, workable sound but then you put them all together into one album and realise that they can do many genres easily, effectively and still do themselves justice.

Here comes Your Man is the best track the 60's didn't write. Cecilian Ann is the best Surf Rock song you may not have heard. Tame is vitriol personified. Dinosaur Jr's dense but pop like structures could be argued as more influential within their own genre and Living All Over Me is a ridiculously great album and perfect for when you want melodious noise upon your ears.

Pixies influenced a wider range of bands for sure but Dinosaur Jr are sometimes a much more rewarding and cohesive listen. After all that I am undecided!
