Pay what you think its worth- Radiohead's new album download

13 October 2007

Thought this seems like a good deal from the band Radiohead, pay upwards of $2.25 (£1) for the full album depending on what you think its worth

"By choosing to release their seventh studio album, In Rainbows, as a digital download through their own Web site at a price determined by each consumer willing to part with an email address, the band once again has become the talk of the music world. After two days, sources within the bands camp were claiming that more than 1.2 million copies had been downloaded."

    What a brilliant idea. I'm very tempted to go download a copy just to support innovation. How much did you pay mamaK?

    I heard there were problems with the firefox browser, so you might have to use another to make this successfully work . I saw this on other sites but totally forgot to put it here!! I love radiohead :)

    Hot vote from me :) What a great idea - so so much better than having a simple sale

    Welcome to Buckscoop Fonhiew Thanks for letting us know I really hate using IE - I find it slow and clunky. I really don't now why sites seem to prefer you to use it - or should I say, why they decide to make their sites more IE compatible. Not that this is all that relevant to this thread :o

    you can enter 0 for the price and have it for free.. but its good to support the artists :)

    I thought they said the base was $2.25.
  • Emma EDITOR
    I read elsewhere that it works with a $0.00... but I'd give them a few bucks :)

What do you think?
