Default The Queen Is Dead vs. Disintegration

Both great albums, and I think this is an interesting match up but which one do you guys prefer and why?

The Cure's "Disintegration"?

or

The Smiths' "The Queen Is Dead"?

Disintegration by a huge margin for me. It's one of my long time favorite albums, the kind that transport me somewhere else and feel like a single, unified piece.

Disintegration >> anything the smiths have ever done

And the queen is dead isn't even the best smiths album.

Honestly that's like asking me whether I prefer sugar or corn syrup. I like them both, they are both ****in sweet sweet sugary lovely goodness.

They are both completely different sounding records at the heart of the matter. Don't make me choose.....Please!

Not my favourite from either band. ProbablyThe Queen Is Dead though.

Dammit it's like asking me which arm I don't want more.

Stop musical amputations, they are just wrong.

Am I the only one who doesn't care about either record?

You don't like either record, or you don't like either artist.

I know what you said, I am just probing?

Heh, probe.

I hardly ever listen to either of those records anymore. They both have, imo, some of the artist's best songs on them but there's a lot of filler. Disintegration is more consistently good imo, really only one or two tracks I know I'm iffy on while TQID really only has 3 songs I like. Disintegration, for me.

Don't like The Smiths.
The Cure don't do much for me either.
If I had to choose one, Disintegration has Lovesong on it, so it wins but I really have no great love for either record.
