Mine's still changing, too. Daily, it seems.

Today it's:

1. Where I End and You Begin
2. Sit Down. Stand Up.
3. The Gloaming
4. There There
5. Punchup at a Wedding

Sadly, today was the first time I skipped something. As I anticipated, the skipping of We Suck has begun.

where i end and you begin is getting a lot of praise here. maybe it does sound a bit like a u2 song? i dont really see it, but i suppose some people might be onto something...

1. wolf at the door
2. backdrifts
3. go to sleep
4. there there
5. a punch up at a wedding

and yes, that is only for today. itll change tommorow.

I don't think "WIEAYB" sounds anything like U2. But oh well, each to his/her own. My top 5 as of 2:29pm today:

The Gloaming
Go To Sleep
WIEAYB
There There
and....

WE SUCK YOUNG BLOOD

Has anyone else been getting into Sail to the Moon? It's really growing on me.

'Punch Up...' is the the catchiest thing I've heard in a long time. This album is really more pop than ATYCLB (in terms of pop structures), but it's funny no one sees that. This is by far the most commercial album Radiohead have ever released (with the possible exception of Pablo Honey). I'd rank this album behind OK Computer and the Bends but possibly ahead of Kid A and Amnesiac.

IMO, the worst song is 'The Gloaming' (we've heard this done before and better at that).

'We Suck Young Blood' is another song that's been done before -- not just by Radiohead, but by U2, lol...it's a complete rip off of 'Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long)' from the Passengers album -- if you don't believe me, just go listen to it...a carbon copy, practically, with a little bit of alteration.

'There There' is a great song, but it annoys me now for some reason. Whenever I hear those drums kick in, it kind of puts me off...but it's a great pop/rock song with an infectous melody and nice guitar work.

'Sail to the Moon' is typical of Radionead, a nice apolyptic song that has been done before...but Thom's voice is lovely in it.

Overall, a very good album...and a GREAT reflection of the times.
