I love that song and I love this album. It didn't make my top 15 but it certainly is an honorable mention.

Okay I'm going to limit myself to one from each artist as well, since otherwise the majority of this list would be U2

1. U2 - Pop
2. Radiohead - Kid A
3. Bright Eyes - Lifted or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground
4. Alien Ant Farm - ANThology (or 3rd Draft but that's not technicaly out yet)
5. Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
6. Dredg - El Cielo
7. Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
8. The Beatles - The White Album
9. Interpol - Turn On the Bright Lights
10. Joseph Arthur - Our Shadows Will Remain
11. The Velvet Underground - VU
12. Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
13. Muse - Absolution
14. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis Bold as Love
15. Tool - Lateralus

#1 will never, ever change. Kid A is also way up there. everything else is sort of interchangeable.

This album is definitely a masterpiece. It was my #2 after AB. I have only heard a few songs from Sigor Ros. They seemed okay, but there was something missing. I love the rest of your top 15 so I am wondering if I should give them another chance.

Just curious, why do you like them so much? What are some adjectives you would use to describe this album you ranked.

I presume you're talking about Sigur Rós and not MBV here? Anyway, I cheated and stole some adjectives from AllMusic.com:

* Druggy
* Soothing
* Elegant
* Theatrical
* Laid-Back/ Mellow
* Wintry
* Ominous
* Precious
* Ethereal
* Ambitious
* Complex
* Lush
* Dramatic

But I'd agree with those. I listen to an awful lot of mellow music overall.
