Your favorite autumnal albums

Sunday was the last day of summer, so we northern hemisphere folks are officially in the autumn. Certain albums fit that mood better than others do...you know the type. That's what this thread is for; list your favorite albums that work out great during the cooler, darker months, even if we haven't quite reached them yet.

Rhapsody sort of reminded me to make this thread by putting up a list of autumn-themed songs, but it was sort of cheesy, and focused more on lyrical content than musical content, though I did appreciate their inclusion of U2's October.

Anyway, here's my list:

TV On The Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain
R.E.M. - Automatic For The People
Radiohead - Kid A/In Rainbows
Modest Mouse - The Moon And Antarctica
Beck - Sea Change
Interpol - Turn on The Bright Lights
Nick Drake - Pink Moon

Bruce Springsteen's The Rising is autumnal, in an odd way, to me. It always seems to make more sense then as opposed to other times of the year.

For me, Darkness is a better choice.

Ha, I would actually consider this record more spring-like. It's downbeat at times, but not melancholy. Tough to describe. That's just me, of course.

U2...October (too obvious?)
Radiohead...Kid A
Sonic Youth...A Thousand Leaves
Mineral..Endserenading
Elliott Smith...From a Basement on the Hill (I think because it came out in October)

anything by Hayden (could possibly be considered winter music)
