Anyone "bought" Radioheads new album??

On Radiohead website you can decide yourself how much you want to pay for it.

So in reality you can get it for free

Well, i just pre-ordered the CD version for £40, so I'm not going to have to make the difficult decision! With the CD you get an extra disc of tracks and nice artwork, as well as the download next week. Am a very excited boy right now

In a way it is easy to pay nothing, maybe I´ll do that. So many great album/DVD´s are released

i read that most people are actually buying the box set and very few actually buying it for nothing. will be interesting to see how this all works out

I bought the box set. It cost me $82 USD! But it looks like it's really nice and Radiohead give their fans a lot for their dough. Plus when it comes to Beatles, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Peter Gabriel I shell out the money. Only because I am a collector also.
And if I said I really knew you well what would your answer be?

If people are downloading Radiohead, who are the biggest act in the world today, for FREE, it is a sad affair for artists who are independent whoa re trying to make a living to get to the point Radiohead have...who's gonna buy an album from a new artist that no-one knows of???

I like the fact that the industry is seeing many changes and Radiohead have been at the forefront of it for some time since they have no current home on a label, and it's positive that the future of downloading is etched in stone...but what about all o fus who have been buying music online for years now...what price should we have been paying all along for an artists music? Where should the line be drawn.

I'm all for what they are doing but this move was really one that shook up everyone down the line in just about ever facet of the industry no matter how big or how small.

What is the cost of music? The price of art? Do the artists taht choose this path hope to make their money from live shows alone instead of sales of an album alone? Who does it really benefit?
