Radiohead "In Rainbows"

Ok, as most of you all know, I have been hyping this album for a hot moment. I really cant even begin to explain how great this is. It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest milestones in the history of human sound! Last night I had a serious headache and couldn't sleep. After listening to this album for a good minute or so I was out like a rock, and in about an hour I felt so much better. This album made me feel better. In late 2007 Radiohead released In Rainbows as a digital download that customers could order for whatever price they saw fit [who does that??!]. Upon its retail release, In Rainbows entered the UK Album Chart and the U.S. Billboard 200 at number one; it went on to sell three million copies worldwide in both digital and physical formats. The album earned widespread critical acclaim, and was ranked as one of the best albums of 2007 by several publications. In 2009, the record won two Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Special Limited Edition Package. This is genius at its purest level; a source of such great inspiration.

this and ok computer are like the best radiohead albums out there. I only like creep off of the first one. I also like fake plastic trees and high and dry off of the bends, but ok computer will definitely make you sleep like a baby.
