Jack's Mannequin is the only one I'd go with for sure, as his stuff there sounds more mature and less same-y.

Side projects I love but don't surpass the main band: Box Car Racer and +44. Both albums are so atmospheric and have some of the best lyrics the guys have written.

Farewell Continental is also awesome, but Motion City Soundtrack is unbeatable.

Oh I don't know if this counts but absolutely, 100% Kevin Devine over Miracle of 86. Better songwriting and lyricism all around. And though he rocks the full band songs, the acoustic thing really suits him.

Joe said Charlie Simpson over Fightstar, that's definitely one. The guys in the tower the fool over therefore I am. Misser over (new) Transit. I like(d) tsoaf better than RX bandits, which is probably an unpopular opinion. I like Matthew Vincent's stuff from his split just as much as the American scene. I feel like there's more that I can't think of.

I dunno if I'd say they're better than Tool, but A Perfect Circle was great.

charlie over fightstar is tough for me, maybe with his new release i can be confident with that one. thrice over any of kensrues solo stuff, deftones over team sleep. but i think its more musical preference than the headman

I prefer City and Colour over Alexisonfire, Stone Sour over Slipknot, The Almost over Underoath and there's probably some more.

No one's said Misser yet?

That's usually the go to post in these convos.
I love Misser way more than YNE, that's for sure.

I really love Straylight Run, but does that count?

As much as I loved YP, it still doesn't touch early Fightstar for me.

for me, it's definitely the aforementioned Kasher over Cursive argument. Same with Desaparecidos and Conor.

Morrissey or The Smiths is a tough one haha

I don't know, man. How do you top The Smiths?
