New Radiohead Album

You choose how much to pay to download it.

Altruistic gesture, or cynical marketing ploy?  Well, the band are known for their generosity.  They are also known for their massive, fanatical fanbase (who will doubtlessly buy the cd next year anyway).  The idea has got them masses of publicity and goodwill, perhaps even more that a give-away would have.

I think its nice to see a band that doesn’t need the record industry, especially a good one.
