The cover sucks pretty badly.

What a spectacular record. Probably the best of the year. I have a hard time letting go of GaGaGaGaGa and Neon Bible, but I must.

Agreed.

But I also prefer A Weekend in the City, Sky Blue Sky, and Manipulator (The Fall of Troy) to Neon Bible

This may also be a contender for album of the year for me. I can't say it's better than A Weekend in the City yet just because I've listened to AWITC so many times, but today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen.

And Sound of Silver, Sky Blue Sky, and others.

However, In Rainbows trumps them all.

1. Radiohead - In Rainbows
2. Spoon - GaGaGaGaGa
3. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
4. The Shins - Wincing The Night Away
5. LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver
6. Kanye West - Graduation
7. Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
8. Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger
9. White Stripes - Icky Thump
10. The Good, The Bad, And The Queen - The Good, The Bad, And The Queen

AWITC is a brilliant record thought

I need to get Icky Thump. Perhaps in a few weeks when I feel like listening to something besides In Rainbows

i have to say for the most part I've been listening to this album straight through (I've listened to my favourite songs a few extra times)...on the other hand I just got HTTT on Friday and was skipping to my favourite songs by the second or third listen. Great stuff there but also a lot of filler. I don't know if I've listened to the whole thing straight through more than twice. perhaps thrice.

but i feel like i could listen to this forever

I listened to Where I End and You Begin today, my favourite from HTTT, and as beautiful as it is, the soothing vibe I get from it is somehow completely different than the calming vibe I get from In Rainbows, which sounds silly I guess but it's like Where I End and You Begin (and HTTT in general, and Kid A, and Amnesiac, and maybe everything else Radiohead has done ever) is where you go when you want to escape life...In Rainbows is where you go when you want to have a newfound appreciation for life.

except i do kind of escape in the sense that i've done like no work today cuz i cant stop listening to it

Sound of Silver still reigns supreme for me.

Neon Bible and Volta take up the 2nd and 3rd positions.

In Rainbows is somewhere on the level with Sky Blue Sky for now.

That's pretty close to my list at this point, with a few substitutions.

1. In Rainbows (tenatively)
2. Sound of Silver
3. Neon Bible
4. Super Furry Animals--Hey Venus
5. Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
6. Amy Winehouse--Back to Black (technically last year, but who actually had it then?)
6. Bruce Springsteen--Magic
7. Bjork--Volta
8. Icky Thump
9. Prince--Planet Earth
10. Wilco--Sky Blue Sky


possible contenders:

Travis Morrison Hellfighters--All Y'all
Ween--La Cucaracha (just got this off torrents but it's amazing)
The New Pornographers--Challengers
Arctic Monkeys--Favorite Worst Nightmare
Kings of Leon--Because of the Times
Kanye West--Graduation
Band of Horses--Cease to Begin (just got this too but haven't listened to it yet)
Joni Mitchell--Shine

Haven't heard this one yet, but I should, as I really like them a lot.
