Top 10 album of all time with a top 10 song of all time.

Tracklisting:
05 | All My Friends
06 | Us v Them
01 | Get Innocuous!
04 | Someone Great
09 | New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down
03 | North American Scum
07 | Watch the Tapes
02 | Time to Get Away
08 | Sound of Silver

I think Sound of Silver and Songs for the Deaf are the only 2 albums with 5 songs in my top 500 of all time.
Someone Great would have been my pick for #2 for quite a long time, but as time goes I go back to Us v Them and Get Innocuous! even more.

I basically love all of the songs on this album (aside from the two at the bottom). I had a hard time ranking the six songs between #1 and the bottom two:

05 | All My Friends
03 | North American Scum
04 | Someone Great
09 | New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down
07 | Watch the Tapes
02 | Time to Get Away
06 | Us v Them
08 | Sound of Silver
01 | Get Innocuous!

Pretty nice album. I'm still relatively new to the genre. Talking Heads influence definitely on the opening track.

02 | Time to Get Away
08 | Sound of Silver

My #7 album of all time...

1. All My Friends (my #1 song of all time)
2. Someone Great (my #231 song of all time)
3. New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down (my #20 song of 2007, and one of the best songs ever that's not included on AM)
4. North American Scum (my #39 song of 2007, and a great song all around)
5. Us V Them (just outside of my top 50 songs of 2007. An underrated track with a strong Talking Heads vibe)
6. Get Innocuous! (also just outside of my top 50 songs of 2007. The Kraftwerk sample on the song is great)
7. Sound of Silver (a good song, and the lyrics here make the track)
8. Time to Get Away (a good song, but just "good")
9. Watch the Tapes (also a "just good" song)

I also have a theory about this album. There are 9 songs here, and those 9 songs can easily be divided into 3 groups of 3. We have the...

The rockers:

Time to Get Away
North American Scum
Watch the Tapes

The heartstring tuggers:

Someone Great
All My Friends
New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down

The dance-punk jam sessions:

Get Innocuous!
Us V Them
Sound of Silver

This is a really top heavy album for me. I find myself skipping past the bottom four tracks whenever I go back to it.

I'm surprised by the lack of love for Us v Them.
Never expected it to beat the top 3 but assumed it'd stay in the middle of most lists.
The songs has been the opener of their comeback concerts so I assumed it was a fairly beloved one, and the "clouds black out the sun" break had a huge pop from the audience (granted, helped by the fact it was the first song of the set).

Good to see New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down place in the top three. I'm really shocked Sound of Silver beat Us v Them. I find Sound of Silver to be the one weak moment on an otherwise perfect album (Time to Get Away and Watch the Tapes work well as breathers), while Us v Them is one of their best pure jams. Their scores are close, but I expected Sound of Silver to be an easy last place.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)
