Fandom Friday: Lord of the Rings vs. A Song of Ice and Fire

For fantasy geeks, this is probably the biggest current debate. Which book series is better (although I have no clue what "better" means in this context)? Is GRRM really the American Tolkien?

At the risk of starting a flame war, I'll say that I think Lord of the Rings is better, if only because it is sufficiently epic in scope and narrative, and it has withstood the passage of time exceptionally well. A Song of Ice and Fire is, by way of comparison, more of a soap opera which is epic with respect to length, but it's still unfinished, and fifty years from now, I'm not sure it will be revered as Lord of the Rings is currently.
