This is the best free (and legal!) music I have listened to in a long time. I like Radiohead, but this album is just right. It's like sitting on a porch, watching the sun set, drinking whiskey, and smoking cigarettes.


I'm a big fan, but I can't help but wonder whether this will set a trend that will hurt small up-and-coming indie bands who need to sell in order to make money. Radiohead can count on having enough die-hard fans willing to shell out 80 bucks for the special edition stuff, but small bands have to make a living selling records... Though I guess they could focus more on touring.

This is definitely the best album RH has made since Kid A. Less self-loathing and apocalyptic paranoia, more groove and harmony.
