rAdioHead: iN rAinbOws

It might be awhile before I can get on the site. The thing is so bogged down. But, I like this idea of an online pre-release where you name the price.

It's an interesting concept and experiment; Challenging people's honesty and perceptions on what music is worth. If this is a successful business model then it just might restore my faith in humanity. Then again...

Most likely I will shell out ten bucks if and when the site is available. I think a dollar per song is pretty fair especially when all the money is going directly to the band. That's right, no record label is making a cent off this thing until Radiohead signs a new deal.

I wish I could pay the $81 for the real album and the corresponding art work, but I got some other priorities to deal with. Sometimes it sucks having responsibilities.

Any ways, my hat is off to Radiohead. Great idea! I hope the album does well. It certainly seems to be doing pretty good if it crashed the site multiple times.

It's pretty damn good. I've been listening to it for the past week and it has really grown on me. I paid 5 pounds, knowing I'll buy the box set if I liked the CD (I do so I will) or at least buy the physical CD when it gets released.
