This is the most revolutionary thing to hit the music industry since Napster. I'm speechless.
Radiohead's new album, which I was impatiently waiting to show up next year, is being released in 9 days in a surprise move. That's not the revolutionary part.
You pay what you want for the album.
That's right. You, the consumer, get to choose how much you want to pay to buy Radiohead's new CD. That goes from free to infinity (and beyond). I will eagerly purchase it for $9.99 in thanks for such a phenomenal idea. This might change the music industry as we know it. And remember, Radiohead don't have a record label. They're doing this all on their own. Here's to hoping they make a mint off this and encourage other free thinking ideas from today's music frontrunners (*ahem* Pearl Jam *ahem*)...
And in case you were wondering, I like Radiohead. A lot.
