Default Say Hi To Your Mom vs. The Arcade Fire

Which one do you all prefer, give reasons.

I personally prefer Say Hi to Your Mom, their newer album Ferocious Mopes is really good.

I don't see any grounds for comparison, they don't play the same kind of music.

I probably listen to more of Say Hi To Your Mom, because generally I prefer the lo-fi dream pop style over the nu-new wave sound. But, of their kind, SHTYM isn't among the best, and their name is terrible.

SHTYM. The Arcade Fire are hugely overrated, while SHTYM are just really fun Indie Pop.

+100 Indie Points for recording their albums in the basement.
