Breaking Pangaea were an emocore band from Philadelphia featuring drummer Will Noon, guitarist Fred Mascherino and bassist Matt Rubano. Their only album, A Cannon To A Whisper (Undecided, 2001), contained the lengthy progressive emo psychodrama Turning. The group disbanded after the EP "Phoenix (Equal Vision, 2003).
Taking Back Sunday were founded in New York by guitarists Eddie Reyes and John Nolan. Tell All Your Friends (Victory, 2002) featured vocalist Adam Lazzara, bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Mark O'Connell, and was highlighted by vocal harmonies and a twin guitar attack, with bitter punk overtones, that were unusual for the emo genre.

When John Nolan and Shaun Cooper formed Straylight Run and hired Will Noon, Fred Mascherino and Matt Rubano joined Taking Back Sunday. Where You Want To Be (Victory, 2004) maintained the same guitar dynamics, the same soaring and subsiding melodies, and propelled them to stardom thanks to the single A Decade Under the Influence and the slow ballad New American Classic.

After a handful of songs for movie soundtracks (This Photograph Is Proof, Your Own Disaster, Error Operator), Taking Back Sunday comfortably concocted another batch of teenage melodramas on Louder Now (Warner Bros, 2006), such as Make Damn Sure, What's It Feel Like to Be A Ghost, the ballad Divine Intervention and the closer I'll Let You Live, a typical Mascherino meditation. This would remain their bestselling album.

Straylight Run debuted with Straylight Run (2004), a pensive, adult work that relied on male-female vocal harmonies and on atmospheric piano accompaniments (The Perfect Ending, Now It's Done, Existentialism on Prom Night, Mistakes We Knew We Were Making). Michelle Nolan further grew up as a leading vocalist on their second album, The Needles The Space (2007), that marked a quantum jump in arrangement. The most emotional songs now enjoyed small tasty instrumental touches: The Words We Say (with accordion and glockenspiel), The Miracle That Never Came (with trumpet), How Do I Fix My Head? (with electronics and drum loops), Take It To Manhattan (with handclaps). Nonetheless, John Nolan's Warren Zevon-ian soul surfaced again in robust piano elegies such as We'll Never Leave Again, Take It To Manhattan and especially Soon We'll Be Living In The Future.

Taking Back Sunday's guitarist Fred Mascherino launched a side project, the Color Fred, with Bend To Break (2007), a rather bland collection of Taking Back Sunday-sounding songs (If I Surrender).

Taking Back Sunday's New Again (Warner, 2009), replacing Fred Mascherino with Matthew Fazzi, veered towards U2-style arena-oriented punk-pop (Sink Into Me, Summer Man).

The original lineup reunited for Taking Back Sunday (2011), a collection of well-behaved pop songs like Faith and El Paso and including even a dance-pop number, Money.

tuomas doesn't like idm or what he calls idm, most of which isn't idm, he probably likes kit clayton or whatever because they are closer to his shiity panglossian 1992 progressive techno utopian white person with dreads idea of everything

Tuomas (Tuomas) wrote this on thread Top 100 IDM Songs Of All Time on board I Love Music on Dec 4, 2003
hardly anthing off morr, hefty (although i am glad telefon made it), reflex, kareoke kalk,~scape,orthong musork, mille plateau,

The stuff on ~scape or Mille Plateaux is hardly "dance music", no? I think "electronic listening music" predates IDM and will probably outlive it as well.

Messi–Ronaldo rivalry
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Messi (right) and Ronaldo before an international friendly between Argentina and Portugal in Geneva, Switzerland on 9 February 2011.

The Messi–Ronaldo rivalry is a perceived association football rivalry between Argentine forward Lionel Messi and Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo, both of whom are widely regarded as being among the best of all time in the sport, having won a combined seven FIFA Ballon d'Or awards. Both players have scored in two UEFA Champions League finals, have regularly broken the 50 goal barrier in a single season, and have scored over 400 goals in their career for club and country.[1][2] Sports journalists and pundits regularly argue the individual merits of both players in an attempt to argue who they believe is the best player in modern football.[3][4][5][6][7] It has been compared to legendary global sports rivalries such as the Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier rivalry in boxing which culminated with the Thrilla in Manila, the Björn Borg–John McEnroe rivalry in tennis, and the Ayrton Senna–Alain Prost rivalry in Formula One.[8][9][10]

In a 2012 interview, Ronaldo commented on the rivalry, saying "I think we push each other sometimes in the competition, this is why the competition is so high",[11] while Ronaldo's manager during his time at Manchester United, Alex Ferguson, opined that "I don't think the rivalry against each other bothers them. I think they have their own personal pride in terms of wanting to be the best".[12] Messi himself denied any rivalry, saying that it was "only the media, the press, who wants us to be at loggerheads but I've never fought with Cristiano".[13] In response to the claims that he and Messi do not get on well on a personal level, Ronaldo commented; "We don't have a relationship outside the world of football, just as we don't with a lot of other players", before adding that in years to come he hopes they can laugh about it together, stating; "We have to look on this rivalry with a positive spirit, because it's a good thing."[14]

Some commentators choose to analyse the differing physiques of the two,[15] while part of the debate revolves around the contrasting personalities of the two players: Ronaldo is depicted as an arrogant and theatrical showoff, while Messi is portrayed as a shy, humble character.[16][17][18][19] When asked which he preferred, FIFA president Sepp Blatter commented that "Lionel Messi is a good boy that every father and every mother would like to take home. He's a good man, he's very fast, and he's not exuberant, he's playing well, he's dancing. He's a kind man, a good boy. That’s what makes him so popular, and naturally he’ll always get a lot of votes because he plays well and scores goals" before saying that Ronaldo "is something else. He is like a commander on the field of play. This is the other side of football and it's good to have commanders on the field. They don’t have the same attitude and that gives life to football. One has more expenses for the hairdresser than the other but that doesn't matter. I can't say who is the best. I like both of them, but I prefer Messi".[20][21][22]

At club level, with Messi and Ronaldo representing bitter rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid, the two players face each other at least twice every season in the world's most popular regular-season club game, El Clásico, which had a global audience of 400 million viewers in March 2014.[23] Off the field, they are the face of two rival sportswear giants, Messi of Adidas and Ronaldo of Nike, despite the opposite kit sponsors for their respective clubs.[24][25] The two highest paid players in football, Ronaldo and Messi are among the world's best paid sports stars: in combined income from salaries, bonuses and off-field earnings in 2013, Ronaldo was second earning $80 million, and Messi was fourth with $64.7 million.[26] They have the two biggest social media followings in the world among sportspeople with a combined 183 million Facebook fans by January 2015.[23][27][28]

Main article: Cristiano Ronaldo

Born on 5 February 1985 in Funchal, Madeira, Ronaldo began his professional career with Sporting CP, making his senior debut on 7 October 2002, and in 2003 caught the attention of Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, who signed him for £12.2 million (€15 million). Ronaldo's talents were noted early on, with United legend George Best saying "There have been a few players described as ‘the new George Best’ over the years, but this is the first time it’s been a compliment to me".[29]

Ronaldo spent six years at United, helping them win three consecutive Premier League titles between 2006 and 2009,[30] an FA Cup in 2004, and two UEFA Champions League finals in 2008 and 2009, scoring United's goal in the former. He departed United having scored 118 goals in 292 appearances, before he became the world's most expensive player when he moved to Real Madrid in 2009 in a transfer worth £80 million (€94 million). During the 2007–08 Premier League season, he scored a record 31 goals in a 38-game season,[31] including his first senior hat-trick in a 6–0 win against Newcastle United.[32][33]

After the end of his fifth season at Real Madrid, Ronaldo had already amassed a colossal total of 252 goals, making him fourth top scorer in the club's history. Former Real manager José Mourinho referred to him as a "goalscoring machine."[34] He holds the record for most goals in a single Champions League season, after scoring a total of 17 goals in 2013–14. This tally included one in the final as the club finally won La Decima,[35] where he became the first player to score for two different teams in Champions League finals.[36][37] In December 2014, Ronaldo became the fastest player to score 200 goals in La Liga when, in his 178th La Liga game, he scored a hat-trick against Celta Vigo; his 23rd hat-trick was also a La Liga record.[38]

Ronaldo has represented his national team Portugal over 100 times and stands as the top goalscorer in the nation's history. He has scored goals in three consecutive World Cups, having scored against Iran in 2006, North Korea in 2010, and Ghana in 2014. Ronaldo has also scored a total of six goals in the three UEFA European Championship's he has participated in, and is currently ranked joint third in the history of the competition behind only Michel Platini and Alan Shearer. Including qualifying games, Ronaldo is the all-time top goalscorer following his 23rd goal, against Armenia in 2014.[39] He was voted into the UEFA European Championship Team of the Tournament in 2004 after helping Portugal reach the final, and also in 2012 after scoring three goals to help Portugal reach the semi-finals.

Main article: Lionel Messi

Born on 24 June 1987 in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, Messi has spent his entire professional career at Spanish club Barcelona. His prodigious talents were spotted at an early age;[40][41][42][43] he was discovered by Barcelona scout Josep Maria Minguella at the age of 13, and promptly moved to Spain where he progressed through Barcelona's youth academy La Masia, before making his senior debut on 16 October 2004. During this period of time, Messi was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency and Barcelona paid for his treatment.[44][45] Throughout the early years of his career, Messi had to endure the pressure of the tag New Maradona,[46][47][48] comparisons furthered by scoring goals comparable to those Diego Maradona scored against England in the 1986 FIFA World Cup; on 19 April 2007, he scored a mazy dribble against Getafe which bore remarkable resemblance to that of Maradona's,[49][50] before scoring his own version of the Hand of God on 9 June against rivals Espanyol.[51] Maradona himself said of the comparison "I have seen the player who will inherit my place in Argentinian football and his name is Messi".[52][53]

Messi is the all-time top goalscorer in La Liga,[54] is the only player to score five UEFA Champions League hat-tricks,[55] and is the only player to score five in a single Champions League game.[56] On 27 September 2014, Messi scored his 400th professional goal.[1][57]

While representing Argentina under-20 at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, he scored a total of six goals, including two goals in the final to help Argentina win the tournament. He made his senior debut two months later, coming on as a substitute, but was sent off for violent conduct minutes later.[58] He has scored five goals in World Cups, with his first coming in 2006, while the other four in 2014 as Argentina reached the final for the first time in 24 years before losing to Germany. During the 2007 Copa América, Messi scored in the quarter-finals and semi-finals to help Argentina reach the final. Messi won an Olympic gold medal when he represented Argentina's Olympic team in the 2008 Olympic games, as Argentina successfully defended the title they won four years previously in 2004.
Origins

In 2007, Ronaldo and Messi finished as runner-up to A.C. Milan's Kaká in both the Ballon d'Or, an award rewarded to the player voted as the best in the world by an international panel of sports journalists, and the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year, an award voted for by coaches and captains of international teams. In an interview that year, Messi was quoted as saying "Cristiano Ronaldo is an extraordinary player and it would be brilliant to be in the same team as him".[59][60]

They first played in a game together when United were drawn to play Barcelona in the 2007–08 UEFA Champions League semi-finals, and were immediately pitted as major rivals.[61][62][63] Ronaldo missed a penalty in the first leg,[64] but United eventually advanced to the final via a Paul Scholes goal.[65] At the end of the year, Ronaldo was awarded the Ballon d'Or and vowed that he would win the award again.[66][67]
2009 UEFA Champions League Final

The 2009 UEFA Champions League Final was contested between United and Barcelona on 27 May 2009 at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy. The match, described as a "dream clash",[68] was again hyped as the latest battle between the two, this time to settle who was the best player in the world;[69][70] Ronaldo claimed he was the better of the two,[71] while Messi's club-mate Xavi sided with him.[72] United manager Alex Ferguson was more diplomatic, praising both players as being amongst the world's elite talents.[73][74] Messi, playing in a central role he was unaccustomed to so he would avoid a direct battle with United left-back Patrice Evra,[75] scored Barcelona's second in a 2–0 victory with a header in the 70th minute.[76] Ronaldo, meanwhile, was subdued for much of the game despite some early chances to score, and his frustration eventually showed when he was booked for a rash tackle on Carles Puyol.[77][78]
Season by season
2009–10

On 11 June 2009, Manchester United accepted an offer of £80 million (€94 million) for Ronaldo to be transferred to Barcelona's El Clásico rivals Real Madrid.[79][80] The transfer was confirmed on 1 July.[81][82] At the end of the year, Messi was awarded the Ballon d'Or by a record margin of 240 points.[83][84]

In the first league meeting of the two players, on 29 November 2009, it was Messi's Barcelona who came out on top, winning 1–0 with a goal from Zlatan Ibrahimović.[85] In the second El Clásico of the season, Messi scored his 40th goal of the season in a 2–0 win.[86] Messi was said to have made a fool out of Ronaldo by the Spanish press, which claimed that Ronaldo's "reign in the football world has ended".[87]
2010–11

On 20 November, the pair both scored hat-tricks on the same day for the first time; Ronaldo hit three goals against Athletic Bilbao in a 5–1 win, while Messi scored three as Barcelona thrashed Almería 8–0.[88][89] The achievement was said to have proven why they are widely considered "the world's best players".[90] In January 2011, Messi won the inaugural combined version of the FIFA Ballon d'Or.[91][92]

The two players faced each other whilst representing their international sides for the first time on 9 February 2011, as Argentina played Portugal in a friendly in Geneva, Switzerland, their first meeting for 40 years.[93][94][95] Both players were on the scoresheet, with Ronaldo scoring an equaliser before Messi scored an 89th minute penalty to win the game 2–1.[96][97]

The two came face-to-face in four pulsating games in the season finale,[98] and the fixtures were hyped as the definitive games as to which of the two was the better player.[99][100][101][102][103] In the first game of the series on 15 April, Messi scored a 51st minute penalty to give Barcelona the lead until the 82nd minute, when Ronaldo scored a penalty of his own to give Real Madrid a share of the points.[104] In the second game, the 2011 Copa del Rey Final, Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game in extra time to give Real Madrid a 1–0 win, and the club's first trophy under manager José Mourinho.[105] The third game was the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. The match was ugly and ill-tempered, with Madrid's Pepe and Barcelona's José Manuel Pinto both sent off, before Messi provided two moments of magic,[106][107][108] including one described as "one of the best goals in Champions League history",[109] to give Barcelona a two goal lead in the tie.[110] Following the game, Messi was praised as both the current best in the world and amongst the greatest players of all time.[111][112][113] Of the seven goals scored in the four games, Messi scored three and Ronaldo scored two.[114]
2011–12
Messi finished the 2012 calendar year with 91 goals to his name, breaking the previous record held by Gerd Müller and winning his fourth consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Or in the process.

On 24 September, both players scored a hat-trick on the same day for the second time; Ronaldo scored three in a 6–2 win against Rayo Vallecano, and Messi scored three in a 5–0 win over Atlético Madrid.[115][116]

In January, Messi won his third consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Or, becoming only the fourth player to win the award three times after Johan Cruyff, Michel Platini, and Marco van Basten.[117][118] Having been drawn against each other in the Copa Del Rey quarter-finals later in the month, Ronaldo scored a goal in each game, but Barcelona advanced 4–3 on aggregate.[119][120]

On 7 March 2012, Messi became the first player in the Champions League era to score five goals in a single game as Barcelona beat Bayer Leverkusen 10–2 on aggregate.[121] Following the achievement, Messi was hailed as the best in the world by his manager Pep Guardiola,[122] and club mate Xavi.[123] while journalists and pundits debated whether he was the greatest player of all time.[124][125][126][127][128] Later in the month, he became Barcelona's all-time leading goalscorer when he scored a hat-trick against Granada, overtaking César Rodríguez Álvarez's record of 232 goals.[129][130][131]

On 21 April 2012, Ronaldo scored the winning goal in El Clásico as Real Madrid won 2–1 and closed in on the league championship.[132]
2012–13

In the first El Clásico of the season on 7 October, both players scored twice in a 2–2 at the Camp Nou, the sixth straight match between the two clubs that Ronaldo had scored in.[133][134] Ronaldo scored in the 23rd minute to put Madrid 1–0 in front, then Messi scored two either side of half-time to put Barcelona in the lead, but for only five minutes before Ronaldo scored a 66th minute equaliser.[135]

Messi finished the calendar year of 2012 with an all-time record of 91 goals for both club and country, overtaking Gerd Müller's record of 85 goals.[136][137]

In January, Messi won his record fourth consecutive FIFA Ballon d'Or.[138][139] At the end of the month, the players scored hat-tricks on the same day for the third time; Ronaldo scored three against Getafe as Real Madrid won 4–0 before Messi went one better by scoring four goals against Osasuna as Barcelona won 5–1.[140][141] It was Ronaldo's 20th hat-trick and Messi's 200th career league goal.[142]

In the Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg, Ronaldo scored two goals to help Real Madrid advance to the final in a 3–1 victory.[143][144] The goals meant he had scored in six consecutive El Clásico's at the Nou Camp.[145]
2013–14
By the end of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League season, Ronaldo had broken the record for the most goals scored by a player in a single season, finding the back of the net 17 times to help Real Madrid win a record tenth title.

On 6 September 2013, Ronaldo scored his first hat-trick whilst representing Portugal, helping them come from 2–1 down against Northern Ireland to win 4–2.[146] Later in the month, the players scored hat-tricks on the same Champions League matchday for the first time; Ronaldo scored three against Galatasaray as Real Madrid won 6–1, while a day later Messi scored a hat-trick against Ajax as Barcelona won 4–0.[147][148] This latest accomplishment was said to "defy the accepted wisdom that football is a team game".[149]

On November 19, Ronaldo scored all four of Portugal's goals in the two-legged play-off against Sweden which ensured Portugal's place at 2014 FIFA World Cup.[150] His hat-trick in the second-leg made him tied for Portugal's all-time top goalscorer after equalling Pauleta's record tally of 47 international goals.[151] The next day, it was announced the voting period for the 2013 FIFA Ballon d'Or had been extended,[152][153] much to the chagrin of Barcelona president Sandro Rosell.[154] At the beginning of 2014, Ronaldo ended Messi's reign as the best player in world when he was awarded the 2013 FIFA Ballon d'Or.[155][156] With both players captaining their respective country and therefore receiving the opportunity to vote, neither player voted for the other to decide who would receive the award or for the player who finished third, Franck Ribéry,[157][158] with Ronaldo instead choosing to vote for Radamel Falcao, Gareth Bale and Mesut Özil, and Messi voting for clubmates Andrés Iniesta, Xavi and Neymar.[159]

In the second El Clasico of the season on 23 March 2014, Messi became the all-time top scorer in the fixture after he scored a hat-trick, including two penalty kicks, as Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 4–3, while Ronaldo also scored a goal from the penalty spot which initially put Real Madrid 3–2 in front; it was a match described as "astonishing", "thrilling" and "the best Clasico in recent years".[160][161][162]
2014–15

At the start of the season, the race to beat Raúl's Champions League goal scoring record of 71 goals dominated the headlines,[163][164] with Messi beating Ronaldo to equal the record when he scored against Ajax on 5 November,[165] and beating the record on 25 November with three goals against APOEL in a 4–0 victory.[166] Following this milestone goal, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique claimed Messi was the "greatest player of all time".[167] Ronaldo equalled Raúl's tally on 26 November when he scored the only goal of the game against Basel.[168]

For the second time in the season, the two players faced each other, this time in the shirts of their respective nations at Old Trafford, and was their last meeting before the announcement of the 2014 FIFA Ballon d'Or. The British press called the match a "international version of the Premier League's 39th game", which claimed that it "offers unique opportunity for a new seam of support to become embroiled in the Ronaldo v Messi arguments".[169] Portugal defeated Argentina 1-0, although neither Ronaldo, nor Messi appeared on the score sheet.[170]

On 3 November, in a 4–0 victory over Granada, Ronaldo made league history when he scored his 17th league goal of the season in just 10 games; the record was previously held by Isidro Lángara, who scored 16 goals in the first ten games of the 1935–36 season for Real Oviedo.[171] On 22 November, Messi equalled, and then went past, Telmo Zarra's goalscoring record of 251 when he scored a hat-trick against Sevilla.[172][173] Luis Enrique praised him following the achievement, saying that he is "one-of-a-kind and we'll never see anyone like him ever again and we are privileged to have him and be able to watch him".[174] On 6 December, Ronaldo overtook Zarra's record of 22 La Liga hat-tricks, which he jointly held with Alfredo Di Stéfano, when he scored three against Celta Vigo.[175] The goals meant he became the quickest player to reach 200 La Liga goals, accomplishing the feat in just 178 games, surpassing Zarra's record of 219 games to reach the milestone.[176][177] The following day, Messi responded by scoring his third hat-trick in his four games, his 21st La Liga hat-trick in total.[178][179] The continuous record breaking was said be down to the pairs' "spellbinding skill, relentless application, athletic charisma",[180] while journalist Sid Lowe said that this latest accomplishment "probably doesn't count as a story any more".[181]

On 12 January 2015, Ronaldo won his second consecutive Ballon d'Or, garnering 37.66% of the votes, ahead of Messi with 15.76%. Both players again refused to vote for each other; Ronaldo voted for Real Madrid teammates Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, while Messi voted for teammates from both club and country, picking Ángel Di María, Andrés Iniesta and Javier Mascherano.[182] Both players were praised for their accomplishments throughout 2014, with neither player clearly being the world's best a "tribute simply to the status of both men",[183] while Ronaldo was declared a "truly worthy recipient", having scored 61 goals to Messi's 58,[184] and it was declared that the time had come to finally give Ronaldo the respect he deserves within the confines of the rivalry.[185]

On 5 April, Ronaldo scored five times in one game for the first time in his career, including an eight-minute hat-trick, in a 9–1 defeat of Granada in La Liga.[186] He followed this up on 8 April with a goal against Rayo Vallecano in a 2-0 victory; his 300th Real Madrid goal.[187] 10 days later, he became the first player in the history of football to score 50 or more goals in a season on five occasions, when he scored the third goal in a 3–1 victory against Málaga,[188] while earlier in the day, Messi scored his 400th Barcelona goal in a 2–0 win against Valencia.[189]
Awards and records

Throughout the existence of the rivalry, the pair have dominated awards ceremonies and broken a multitude of goalscoring records for both club and country, feats which have been described as "incredible", "ridiculous", and "remarkable".[190][191][192]

Awards ceremonies to crown the world's best player were held annually since 1956, when the inaugural Ballon d'Or awarding took place. The Ballon d'Or was presented to the player who had been voted to have performed the best over the previous year, and was established by French journalist Gabriel Hanot. Originally, votes could only be awarded to European players before a 1995 rule change. In the voting for the 2004 Ballon d'Or, Cristiano Ronaldo received his first votes, finishing in joint 12th with Milan Baroš on 11 points.[193] In 2005 he received three points,[194] and in 2006 received five points, the same year Messi earned his first votes, finishing with three points.[195]

The FIFA World Player of the Year was established in 1991. In the voting for the 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year, Ronaldo received his first votes, finishing 13th with 45 points. In 2005 he received 13 points, and in 2006 received 69 points. Messi received his first votes in 2007. Both players dominated the voting of both awards from 2007 until the 2010 merging, and continued to reign in the combined FIFA Ballon d'Or.

European Golden Shoe
See also: European Golden Shoe

The European Golden Shoe is awarded to the top goalscorer in Europe. Since the points system was established in 1996, Ronaldo and Messi are two of only three players, along with Mário Jardel, to score 80 or more points, while Messi is the only player to score 100 points. The Golden Shoe is awarded based on a weighted points system that allows players in tougher leagues to win even if they score fewer goals than a player in a weaker league. Goals scored in the top five leagues according to the UEFA coefficients rankings are multiplied by a factor of two, and goals scored in the leagues ranked six to 21 are multiplied by 1.5. Ronaldo and Messi are the only players to win the award three times.[199]

By virtue of being the top scorer in Europe, Ronaldo and Messi also received the Premier League Golden Boot and the Pichichi Trophy in the respective seasons.[200][201]
