@Scott: Hahaha. Good one. :D

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 (ten years ago) Permalink

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

ciderpress, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:42 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I think you're right ciderpress.

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

ok

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

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

W4LTER, Monday, 1 October 2007 00:49 (ten 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 (ten 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.

three handclaps, Monday, 1 October 2007 01:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

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 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten years ago) Permalink

Genius idea.

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

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

latebloomer, Monday, 1 October 2007 04:09 (ten 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 (ten 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 (ten 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).

Catsupppppppppppppp dude 茄蕃, Monday, 1 October 2007 05:28 (ten 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.

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

so awesome

Dandy Don Weiner, Monday, 1 October 2007 10:58 (ten 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 (ten 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.

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 (ten years ago) Permalink

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

Also, you people who like Radiohead are retards.

Billy Pilgrim OTM.

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

i just skimmed that video...
maybe the band is thinking of it as being syncopated as they play it but just listening to the album version it's hard to hear it that way

yeah, near the end of the video they finally make clear that they're talking about the syncopation in the live version in the song, and that the album version's lack of a backbeat takes away the syncopation, even though there are still traces of to be heard (like in the metronome you mentioned, and also just the phrasing of the vocals imo)

"In Rainbows Turns 10" cash-in headlines should be arriving in a few short weeks. Does life get any better?

billstevejim, Monday, 7 August 2017 21:25 (three months ago) Permalink

I'm listening to the "Live from the Basement" version on Youtube and the piano is establishing a straight beat along with the kick drum, with syncopated flourishes popping up here and there in the accompanying percussion.

this iphone speaks many languages (DJP), Monday, 7 August 2017 21:43 (three months ago) Permalink

maybe it's kind of like an easter egg, from a listening perspective I'm not sure what it adds

I'm surprised Thom rates it so highly, I'd take that and bodysnatchers off In Rainbows if I were sequencing it

niels, Monday, 7 August 2017 21:57 (three months ago) Permalink

I agree. But on this version, there's a pretty clear drum beat that puts the piano/vocals a 1/6th note ahead of each quarter note: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isETL6R7x2w

Maybe by the time of the Basement version they decided to stop being so hard on themselves and just play it the way everyone else hears it. Or maybe they didn't want to explain to Clive that "no, actually..."
