You could easily make the reverse argument, considering ATYCLB is more poppy.

I just think HTDAAB has more balls. Guitar wise it's a better album, even if some of the parts are a bit too familiar.

I agreez.

More unforgiveable, I just feel like it's a bunch of songs that don't really fit or belong together. At least ATYCLB seemed to flow or have some cohesion to me.

ok.. I was under the impression by a couple of posters here that the cd version of IR is better than the downloaded version... wtf.. I can't tell the difference, it's identical to me and my hubby who is a musician (guitar player) and has the ear for these kind of details that most would not catch..

I put my sticker on the inside cover, so the words on the front are backwards.

Who's alternative now, Radiohead?

You guys actually made a jewel case? I didn't bother, now I have a bunch of stickers I have no idea what to do with.

Color my underwhelmed with the packaging for the vinyl.

I wonder if the discbox vinyl was any better.

I also agree, except that I actually always preferred ATYCLB to HTDAAB. I haven't listened to HTDAAB since the November it came out except once when an FYMer convinced me to pull it out and give it a fresh listen. So I did, and that time I actually almost hated it instead of the blah way I normally felt about it. ATYCLB at least meant something to me because of what was going on in my life at the time so I'll always have a soft spot for it.
