For me and how I decide is I ask myself which discography would I take if my life depended on it or I was pulling a Cast Away. Would I want The Queen Is Dead and Meat is Murder over You Are The Quarry and Years of Refusal, etc ?
Yeah, in that world ... it's The Smiths and it's not close.
I love blink 182 (not as much as I used to but they're still great to listen to) But I have to choose both the BCR cd and the +44 cd over all of Blink's stuff. I might be in the minority on this but I absolutely love both of those albums Not really sure why exactly but the +44 cd is still one of my all time favorite cds from any band, and BCR is great too.
Edit* Also I like Them Crooked Vultures over the Foo FIghters. TCV is still tied with QOTSA for me though so it doesn't count for better than the queens, just better than Foo Fighters
