Dan Smith's lyrics are to dire for. Its absolutely pointless to find a comparison between Listener and mewithoutYou which are obviously way different stylistically. For those who can't dig the music, remember Listener and mewithoutYou are simply AWESOME in their own way!
"These bands are post-hardcore, this is just experimental music. They doesn't sound similar, except mewithoutyou, just a little. " Notice where I said,"It's mostly about the approach to lyrics and delivery. It's 'talk music'."? Apparently not. =/
two things: 1) I think Dan Smith and Aaron Weiss would be shocked to hear people fighting over who is better. they're both amazing artists, and art isn't about competition.
2) I had the opportunity to meet Dan at a show and he's an awesome guy. I love these words and waves!
