Does CD ever sound better than vinyl?

I also bought the discbox which comes with both the vinyl and CD versions.
The vinyl that comes in the discbox is EXCELLENT! It comes on 2 45rpm discs that really break the mold of new pop/rock albums sounding like crap.
I believe the retail version will be on a single 33rpm disc, and haven't heard yet if this version sounds as good as the discbox copy.
Fantastic album either way! :)
I haven't compared it too vinyl but I can tell you Nigel recorded this album WAY too loud. I use to enjoy the quality of Radiohead albums as much as the music itself. I'm afraid this time around I simply have to enjoy the music...in my car ...with which this album was intended to be listened in.
Slight correction. The CD version is not all that bad. Only track 2 comes across as loud and compressed.
I did not realize that I had hooked up my whole system again after more than month disconnected and stored in Garage while remodeling my house. Just about now it sounds 're-broken' in... and then interior furniture and damping and stuff is not back on completely.
