*raises hand*

I will absolutely buy it. If it were in the store tomorrow, I'd go buy it even though I already paid for the download.

Well it's a good song on an album full of good songs

I do enjoy the live performances of Videotape, and they are better, but they're not that much better imo. I think it's an amazing song in any arrangement.

also no way Wolf at the Door is better than Videotape.

I'm with you. Reckoner is just drop dead gorgeous and while it's too early to say for sure, I have a feeling it could rank up there with some of my all-time favorite Radiohead songs. I've started skipping Faust Arp (even though I love it, too) just because going from All I Need to Reckoner is a little slice of heaven.

I played most of the record for my mother, and she liked it a lot too. I think All I Need won her over. Oh, that song is awesome. The string part in the second verse, combined with the xylophone (or bells, or whatever it is) gives me chills. House Of Cards, while being too busy under headphones, is glorious on speakers where it can fill the whole house.

Rankings...

1. All I Need
2. House Of Cards
3. Nude
4. Bodysnatchers
5. Arpeggi
6. Faust Arp
7. 15 Step
8. Jigsaw Falling Into Place
9. Videotape
10. Reckoner

What if like all but 5 people downloaded the million copies of in rainbows for free because they could. Would radiohead have punished us for failing their 'how much is music worth to you' test?

The punishment would be no LP8 until 2017.

And, how many of those who downloaded it for free are not fans, got it just because they can, and became turned on to Radiohead to the point of looking into their back catalogue. And how many of them will end up buying tickets to see them on tour?

Whichever way you slice it, money will be flowing in Radiohead's direction.

Perhaps only those who paid for the In Rainbows download would be rewarded with an LP8 access code. The rest would have to wait 10 years for it to come out in stores.

BTW, I intend to buy the CD in January.

My mom generally dislikes Thom's voice, but she really liked 15 Step and All I Need. I think I'll burn her a copy of the whole thing.
