In Rainbows is last year.

I purchased my copy on 27th or 28th of Dec.

If your copy says 2008, it's a misprint.

Yeah, it's not a misprint. That is when the regular CD issue came out here.

However, it's considered a 2007 release because it was available everywhere digitally at that time. I think you need to go by the first release.

My list is so half-assed already ... you can consider it officially removed.

Poof! It's gone.

Popmatters has started running specific "Best of 2008" lists each day. They posted a "Best of Britain 2008" list today that's quite good. Here y'are.

If an album was released in 2008, it was released in 2008. Even if it was also released in 2007. Some groups can claim this, like Bon Iver and Delta Spirit. But Radiohead can't really claim it honestly, since In Rainbows was the download heard round the world.

The difference with an artist like Bon Iver was that it was a small, unknown, independent release in 2007, and not a widespread official release, so I would consider that different. It would be part of 2008.

But In Rainbows is, for all intents and purposes, a 2007 release.

With Radiohead being a pommy band and all, the official year of the release of In Rainbows should be and has to be recognised as 2007.

In the words of Morrissey, "America Is Not The World"...

I'd agree with this, but would that make MGMT's album an '08 release as well?

I know I hadn't even heard of them until this year and was surprised that Oracular Spectacular "came out" last year.
