very cool idea. i'm not going to pre-order it though. i'll download the album first, and if i like it, i'll buy it.

 

do they let you pick the bitrate of your downloaded copy? whats the deal?

the question is... what is everyone going to pay for it? how many cheap fucks are out there that are going to give next to nothing for the album?

I think its an amazing concept, even if only a few people take the time to ponder what this album(or any album, or music in general) is worth to them.

That is very cool.

Definitely cool concept. I'm very curious to see how it will turn out.

"While many industry observers speculated that Radiohead might go off-label for its seventh album, it was presumed the band would at least rely on Apple's iTunes or United Kingdom-based online music store 7digital for distribution. Few suspected the band members had the ambition (or the server capacity) to put an album out on their own. The final decision was apparently made just a few weeks ago, and, when informed of the news on Sunday, several record executives admitted that, despite the rumors, they were stunned. "This feels like yet another death knell," emailed an A&R executive at a major European label. "If the best band in the world doesn't want a part of us, I'm not sure what's left for this business."

 

Labels can still be influential and profitable by focusing on younger acts that need their muscle to get radio play and placement in record stores

Most of them, I'm sure. I'm going to wait and see if they actually release a CD. If not, I'm going to be disappointed. I hope music never goes online-only.

Radiohead know that all their die-hard fans are going to buy the actual package. That's why they're doing it.

there's a 75 cent transaction fee on top of whatever you decided to pay....so it'll end up costing you about a dollar.

The actual CD won't be available in stores until early next year.

I paid 10 pounds, it was my choice. I love this band. I refuse to not at least pay what I would pay for the CD in store.

that's crazy, dude. most of what you pay in the store goes to the industry, not the artist (or so i've been led to believe). radiohead don't have a label. plus, in store you get a physical copy of the cd. i'm gonna dl the album on the dl, and if i like it, i'll pay 10 bucks for it.

when artists release an album they get something like a dollar for each cd sold. radiohead thought this one through, they'll get atleast around a dollar each from everyone beacuse of the 75cent additional fee. but "loyal" fans will probably pay more and will even out the cheapies (like me!)

Not crazy it was my way of saying that they as artists deserve that money.
