I'm finding tragic irony in that statement. Aren't YOU equating In Rainbows with stupid/lame/dumb?

MMT and YS are practially EP's though, and technically if we're nitpicking releases, Abbey Road still came out before Let it Be.

I am, though partially as a joke.

I'm just saying these days the use of the word "gay" isn't necessarily a homophobic slur. It's taken on more inoffensive and generic meaning in recent years.

Good call; I'd say Beggar's Banquet / Let It Bleed / Sticky Fingers is even better.

Also Led Zeppelin IV / Houses of the Holy / Physical Graffiti

And Achtung Baby / Zooropa / Pop

Keep backpeddling. You're doing such a great job at it.

That's certainly as bad as Bends/OK Computer/Kid A

The last turd spoils the run.

Here's the U2 contribution:

War/UF/Joshua Tree.

The Bends.

But you have no idea how much of a struggle that was for me. All of the four remaining albums are classics.

Because I obviously think calling things "gay" is funny.

There's just something about a purposefully bad pun that I find fairly enjoyable. So sue me.

And no, I don't think "gay" is generally meant as a homophobic insult much these days. Just an evolution of American lay speech.

And I'd think anyone who even knows me the slightest bit on here would know that I almost never backpeddle. I'm often misunderstood, and often have to explain myself at needless lengths, but I always say what I mean.

Anyway, this has gotten off-topic far enough already. Commence the In Lamebows voting.

Not according to the people that bought Abbey Road in 1969.

And I take offense to MMT not being included in a trio. I'd take an "EP" (that's longer than Revolver) which contains several of the greatest songs ever written over a double disc that's essentially four solo albums (of varying length) soldered together.

Revolver/Sgt. Pepper/MMT FTW.

PC police, my ass.

I personally don't care all that much, but some people really do, and that's why I just think calling things "gay" for kicks is pretty childish.

Whatever, I'm over it. Let's move on.
