so far....i like the last 15 seconds of track 2. I only got through 2 tracks on the way to work. The rest of it's not bad but for some reason thom's voice is even more grating to me than usual on this one and I've never really cared for it to begin with.

from a business standpoint, since they are willing to give the album away for free anyway, I would think it would make sense to have the full album streaming on the website. That way people can listen before they download and then if they like it and want a copy you have that opportunity to ask for money at the point of download.

In the current setup the customer can download the album for free and listen to it but then if they like it they have to go out of their way to go back and contribute some money for it.

It seems like the other way the band would be more likely to receive money from people who liked the album but wanted to try it for free first.

maybe i am the only one who thinks it is good, that they are trying to make a dubstep record...

from a business standpoint, i think their fourth quarter earnings are probably going to be out of control...

I am partway through song 3 and really like what I have heard so far.

After reading a few posts on the "business standpoint" of the record, just curious what other people paid for the download of 'In Rainbows' when they purchased it.

I paid $8.15 total for the download, handling, credit card processing.

I love it.

I am not going do a track by track breakdown. I just fucking love it, and think this is making my top ten of the year, easily.

btw, I paid 10 bucks for it because I care.

not to single anyone out above or anything but nobody really cares how much you pay for the new radiohead album.
it's like telling people how much you recycle.

i am going to wait until someone burns this for me.
downloading is a lot of work, and takes up memory on my computer.

it was less than 4 minutes from the time I opened my email to the time I finished burning a cd. the download couldn't possibly have been any easier or faster.

they said it wasn't possible for a band to release an album of new music, to make it available to their fans, and to do both these things within the space of five years. well friends, looks like radiohead have beaten the odds yet again.

from a business standpoint, these guys are british.

i am glad they are doing it.
it just seems like a lot of work to download.
thats the thing i never understood about downloading.
you sit around and wait for something that you don't know if you are even gonna like.
there has to be an easier way to get music.
someone should start a process where you pay people to have the download burned on to cd, so you don't have go through all that trouble

If someone asks, I assume that someone cares.

and if you think downloading is too much work (right-click and save, phew I need a break!), I'd hate to ask for a mix-tape from you. :wink:

Thanks for not singling anyone out.

It wasn't posted to brag or to be holier than thou like people do when they tell you how much they recycle.

It was out of curiousity as to what people think non-DRM, direct-to-band mp3s would be worth to them. I've taken courses in Game Theory in economics and was interested to see what people chose to pay. If those posts don't interest you, you don't have to read them.

That was my first impression too. "Hail to the Thief" was decent, but not really as dynamic as their other albums.

Now that I have heard it a few times, I think it is going on my number one spot for my 2007 top 10. This one reminded me why I liked the band in the first place.

I am fer sher diggin this album.

My first "fuck yeah" moment came about 8 seconds into track 2, "Bodysnatchers". That track reminds me of "National Anthem" on Kid A. Which is a good thing, in case you were wondering.

And, as the father of a three year old girl, I can tell you that the vocal melody line at the end of "Nude"(starting at the 3:56 mark) is eerily similar to the one Ariel sings in The Little Mermaid.

I have not had the chance to listen yet, but am excited to do so.

From a business standpoint, I have not consumed this widget.

At first I thought (and hoped) the Times was calling them babies.

Radiohead, Big Enough to Act Like a Baby Band
Sadly, it appears to have been written by another adoring fan.
