    I voted portishead, just cuz they are playing this year and I think MA kinda lost it on the last few albums.

    Since Blue Lines and Protection are two of my favorite albums ever, I gotta got with Massive Attack.

    However everything by Portishead ties with Mezzanine and is far greater than 100 window

    I voted Massive Attack. Can't believe they didn't sell out here. This state is fucking retarded. We'll see what Portishead does this year. I'm curious.

    in my opinion, 100th Window is a masterpiece (minus "a prayer for england").

    I would have loved to have seen MA on their 100th window tour. at leat i dont regret missing that being that they played no stateside dates that tour

    and i ended up seeing them three times this last tour anyway so it all worked out

    this poll was just a bad idea.
    why compare two bands that love, respect, and draw on each other? it's just asking for conflict- something this board happens to excel at.

    Oh yeah !?!?!?!!! On their last tour, Massive Attack quite literally put my wife to sleep at the Berkeley Greek. DJ Shadow was by far the best part of that show.

    I can't believe that anyone would dare say that they are better than Portishead or even in the same ballpark for that matter.

    massive attack's been doing it longer and has a bigger catalog, working with peter gabriel, madonna and bowie. the wild bunch wins.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Doing it longer ? Yeah by two years.
    Bigger catalog ? Maybe Portishead's 10 year break has something to do with that.
    Collaborations ? I could care less about that list of artists.

    Oh yeah and the old adage: quality over quantity certainly applies here.

    Edit:

    Well, I did see David Bowie w/ Nine Inch Nails and Prick in '95, so I guess I care a little 'bout him.

    I can't ever make this choice, although I'd see Portishead live before I'd see Massive Attack since I'm one up on Massive Attack.

    Seen Massive Attack live, never seen Portishead live.

    Portishead's new album is OK, but not as good as their early stuff...

    Massive Attack was always kind of hit & miss too...some INCREDIBLE stuff, some almost unlistenable stuff...

    But I gotta say Portishead takes it...barely...

    Now Thievery Corp...that's another story completely...

    I have to agree with the majority of this post, except for the 'barely' part.

    I saw Thievery Corp in '06 from the 5th row right under the speakers at the SF Concourse and they were very very good. The show was perfect, way too loud.

    I heard that they sounded great at the first day of the Treasure Island Festival. A performance I missed in favor of another show, I did head to the fest on day two, though it was a different theme that day.

    Why not? You're on a message forum, and people LOVE to flame. What would be the point of me comparing two completely different bands?

    Massive Attack has a wider range of music...Portishead is great, but their music tends to run together sometimes, and each song by Massive Attack is so different and unique.
