Click Here (radiohead.com)

It's called "In Rainbows". It's only available as a digital download (for now). Oh, and it costs as much as you want to pay for it.

It comes out 10/10.

Who bought it?

If you don't mind telling us, what did you pay for it?

How is it?

I didn't pay anything, actually. We plan to buy the disc box so we can obtain the second disc.

The album is amazing. I'm actually listening to it right now. "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" is my favorite track. I think it's their best since Kid A.

Secretly, I don't get Radiohead. I know that they're good, I know I should like them, but they just don't click for me. So I bought In Rainbows... for 0.00, or whatever that works out to in Canadian dollars.

I downloaded the album last night and will give it a listen within the next day or so. And I promise I'll go back and give them actual money if I actually like it.

(p.s.: suck it, American dollar, suck it hard)

I'm not a big fan of Radiohead except for a few songs off of OK Computer. However, this is an awesome move, and I downloaded the album in exchange for a $10 donation anyway. I have yet to listen to it, so I can't say if it's good or not. I'm really curious to see how this all works out.

I like Radiohead enough. Pablo Honey was okay, The Bends was pretty good, and OK Computer is great. I'm too nervous to try anything after that, because they're apparently radically different after that. But for a first three albums, not bad. Early Radiohead fans, let me know how it is and if I'd like it.

There's defineatly more guitar this time around. I thought it was closer sounding to the earlier stuff then the newer stuff.

I wouldn't be surprised if these songs were left overs from thier early days.

Actually, this album is alot like a Wilco album, in that it's really good, but I don't hear any hit singles coming from it.

I paid roughly $10, so it would stay in line with the $1-per-song price point.

I've only listened while at work, so I haven't gotten a full close opinion on it...I was expected more guitar and more song structure though...

I like it so far, about as much as Hail to the Thief, or Pablo Honey, but nowhere are near the level of OK Computer, The Bends, and Kid A.

I bought the full discbox set thing...I would have paid about $10 (5 pounds) for the download if I had gotten just that.

The album is great. I want to say it's like a stripped down version of Hail to the Thief. In a good way...if that makes sense. As if it resembled the 40 best minutes of HTTT, with slight nods to Kid A/Amnesiac.

FWIW, I think it's got plenty of guitar and song structure.

Go download it for free, and if you like it, redownload it for whatever you think it's worth.
