Swamp Thiiiiing

Radiohead--"The King of Limbs"
I went into this album expecting it to be terrible.  I didn't like "In Rainbows," and half the opinions I heard before putting this on made it out to be 'boring' and 'ugly'.
But this, ladies and gentlemen, this is wonderful.  Say what you want about "Hail to the Thief," songs like Backdrifts still haunt the  dark recesses of my brain when I'm awake at 4 in the morning--and "The King of Limbs" takes this blend of "OK Computer" style impending-doom-crooning and the electro-fied, creepy ropes of guitar and synthesizer from "Hail to the Thief" and throws in Pyramid Song just to mess with you.  This, I like.
