This one's easy for me. Echo & The Bunneymen.

I can't decide yet. I gotta think about this one for a while.

I'm not really a fan of Echo and the Bunnymen, but they did some cool stuff. I cannot stand the bloody Cure though, so this one was a walk in the park.

I have at least 20 THE CURE CDs and 0 ECHO CDs. You do the math.

I can't answer the question. I find 'em both equally excellent at what they do.

I like a couple of songs from Echo but I like much more of The Cure's stuff. The Cure for me.

The Cure, love their "Lullaby" video. I hear singer Smith now laments the band's stigma as 'video band'.

Although I'm a relatively recent convert, it's Echo all the way for me. I've only had 'Ocean Rain' for about 6 months but it's worked it's way up to being indispensible for me, and 'Crocodiles' and the self-titled CD aren't far behind. The Cure have some songs I like, but also a few I hate, so this one's an easy pick for me.

Besides, how can you pick against a band whose driving force is named Ian :)

Echo and the Bunnymen.

I may actually prefer the Cure, but I have two bad experiences with the band involving two opese fat goths. Scarred for life.

The Cure... Echo and the Bunnymen never recorded "Killing An Arab."

ECHO for me... I hate the Cure's whiny vocals, though they have some good melodies.

The Cure. I just bought the "Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me" remastered two-disc set, great album.
