YESSSSSSSSSSS

By the way, it looks like the download only includes the songs from the first disc.

Being the sucker I am, I will pay for all the special edition nonsense so that I do not kick myself later.

Hahahaha. That headline (and sub-headline )sums up the general response quite well, I think.

ONLY FIRST DISC FREE D/L==RADOIHEAD CAPITALIST SCUMFUXX

W4LTER, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:40 (6 years ago) Permalink

the first disc is the album, the second disc is bonus tracks, is the impression i get from the site

Yeah, I think you're right ciderpress.

three handclaps, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:42 (6 years ago) Permalink

ok

W4LTER, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:43 (6 years ago) Permalink

So, will the vinyl be just the first group of songs, the songs on CD1? Or will the vinyl have all the songs from CD1 and 2? On the website the photo of the vinyl looks like it's just the first group of songs.

Z S, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:47 (6 years ago) Permalink

umm, I'd say record no.1 = cd1 record no.2 = cd2

W4LTER, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:49 (6 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, with only 10 songs on the actual album I find it hard to believe they'd need two slabs of vinyl. Unless they're going really prog this time.

"Faust Arp" and "Jigsaw..." better not be wussy little segues...

Simon H., Monday, 1 October 2007 00:53 (6 years ago) Permalink

So, I guess they're releasing this themselves. This is really, really cool, and has made my night.

Is it worth 80? Everything's too fucking cryptic....

In 2001, maybe.

Fair enough.

this is pretty awesome. they sure did take their damn time, though. can't decide whether to take the $80 plunge - someone upthread said it - may as well take it so i'm not kicking myself later. i'd be bummmed though if it's not a great collection of songs.

Mark Clemente, Monday, 1 October 2007 01:39 (6 years ago) Permalink

wow. wow. wow.

i like the whole notion of a 10-day window. it's like the polar opposite of kanye/50, let alone detox/cuban link II...10 days is enough to get the word out to virtually everyone who cares, but not enough time to build up unrealistic expectations. and no leaks? radiohead are geniuses.

i admit i'm choosing the, uh, least expensive option. as i can't afford $81, i'll buy the proper lp or cd version once it's out.

mike a, Monday, 1 October 2007 02:04 (6 years ago) Permalink

Ouch - expensive - Good for them for working outside the established industry - geez I hope they worked hard and it ends up being a great listen - the concert boots with new songs sound great - so I'm all for it ...

BlackIronPrison, Monday, 1 October 2007 03:07 (6 years ago) Permalink

I will now make a prediction:

After a flurry of observations regarding new elements never before heard, this will sound like a Radiohead record.

Naive Teen Idol, Monday, 1 October 2007 03:54 (6 years ago) Permalink

Genius idea.

Tape Store, Monday, 1 October 2007 04:06 (6 years ago) Permalink

so i can download this for a cent if i want?

latebloomer, Monday, 1 October 2007 04:09 (6 years ago) Permalink

Yep.

OMG this is so awesome I don't know what to say.

Also while forty pounds is way out of my budget, I now have something to say when someone asks what I want for my birthday. WOOT.

Roz, Monday, 1 October 2007 04:13 (6 years ago) Permalink

I almost wonder if the whole idea of the set is pre-Xmas gift.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 1 October 2007 04:17 (6 years ago) Permalink

i am a radiohead fan, & have visited the site, & i am looking forward to this album, but i do not understand what any of you are saying. can any of you explain what is going on to me as you might to a 12 year old brother in law (ie a 12 year old but one whom you had respect for or at least feared the potential consequences of upsetting or misleading).

Anyone posting anything serious on this thread is on the verge of being banned from the noise board, fyi.

Catsupppppppppppppp dude 茄蕃, Monday, 1 October 2007 05:28 (6 years ago) Permalink

Hey there sport! That stupid weird band I seem to like so much? They're releasing some new media files (that we used to call "albums" back in the day) in 10 days! And they didn't start hyping it 8 months ago, which is typically the case, in order for rockstars to swim in their pools made of gold. And We The Fans can decide how much we want to pay for those files, because it's the 21st century and Anarchy's en vogue. So I opted not to pay, because I know I'll be a sucker for the eventual release of said files pressed to disc and smothered in artwork. Now lets forget about this nonsense and get back to Brett Favre.

OTM.

Bimble, Monday, 1 October 2007 07:02 (6 years ago) Permalink

this is great.
they came up with the best way i've seen to date for beating the leaks and avoiding fans from just downloading the album. this way its pretty much a donation type deal.
they certainly know their audience. i would have supported them and bought a new album but i feel like the majority wouldnt.

wish the free one was 18 tracks though.

gman, Monday, 1 October 2007 07:05 (6 years ago) Permalink

wish the free one was 18 tracks though.

they need some incentive to sell the 'discbox' besides vinyl and digital photos that'll be on the internet the day the thing is sent out anyway.

Jordan Sargent, Monday, 1 October 2007 07:07 (6 years ago) Permalink

so awesome

Dandy Don Weiner, Monday, 1 October 2007 10:58 (6 years ago) Permalink

Speak of keeping a secret.

Always interesting even though they haven't been close to their artistic potential since "OK Computer".

Geir Hongro, Monday, 1 October 2007 11:17 (6 years ago) Permalink

t/s paying a cent for a new radiohead album because it's not worth any more

vs

just not bothering, and that being my comment.

October 10 prediction:

The earth opens up and swallows everyone who opted not to pay for their download. "It's up to you" ..!? Radiohead are obviously testing our moral character here.

adamj, Monday, 1 October 2007 12:19 (6 years ago) Permalink

I say that a Radiohead album is worth $0.00!!!!

Also, you people who like Radiohead are retards.

King Boy Pato, Monday, 1 October 2007 12:22 (6 years ago) Permalink

Billy Pilgrim OTM.

three handclaps, Monday, 1 October 2007 12:38 (6 years ago) Permalink

As someone mentioned on another board, I could totally see Radiohead sending out tickets for some special tour to those that bought the discbox while giving two fingers to the $0.00 downloaders.

Damnit, I do. Will correct.

comedy is unnatural and abhorrent (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 3 January 2013 17:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

Have they got a song called Numb? I can't think of one but it's like the most Radiohead-y one-word songtitle ever.

comedy is unnatural and abhorrent (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 3 January 2013 17:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

Don't know about Radiohead but Portishead have a song called "Numb" (the one with the duck noises in the beginning on "Dummy") and it fits also very well as one word song title of the band.

alex in mainhattan, Thursday, 3 January 2013 18:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

Nude was my initial instant favourite on the album and I think the spacey arrangement is lovely - probably helps that I'm not a mega-obsessive fan and had no awareness of previous versions of the song. Reckoner and Weird Fishes have taken the lead in my affections in the years since IR was released.

The "Live From The Basement" versions are even better, adding a missing human element.
