In Rainbows is from 2007. Also, this is a personal best of list, not an attempt to compile a comprehensive list of good albums from this year. So it doesn't matter if people have already mentioned your favorites, I wanna see what they are...

there we go. i actually have a problem listening to new albums, the way they're mixed. so LOUD and CRISP. too much range. these lists are a good indicator though
