I'll probably make a collection of live/demo versions of the 10 songs to get myself used to the order.

but no.they are leasing it for free in 10 Days


and yes finally last flowers...that song has been around the OK Computer era
I haven't followed on the latest versions of a lot of songs, I want to be surprised, but House of Cards and 15 Step stand tall next to all my favourite Radiohead songs, Videotape is awesome awesome awesome, Reckoner rocks and, well, Last Flowers is beautiful, although I've only ever listened to acoustic versions (are there any others btw?)

I just can't believe it's this soon. I mean, 9 days now actually, GMT. It's incredible.

This is gonna be sooo good.

what makes you think that RH is going to release less than high quality audio online? it's not like it's a boot or something..

possibly we don't know.. but it's coming from the master tape (you wouldn't be able to tell the difference) not thru a second or third source.. They may use FLAC and then turn it into WAV which is better..

You're a great example of how this sort of approach could work wonders for the band. Pretty smart. Also, if you consider how little an artist actually makes on the sale of an album, compared to the record company, the concept becomes even more ingenious.

That's what Pearl Jam did for their past two tours. They gave you the mp3/FLAC option, which was great. PJ and Radiohead actually seem to share a similar commitment to their fans, in terms of trying something out of the ordinary and rattling the industry.

Me too.

I was going to get the physical set, but then I noticed that they won't be shipping till December anyways, so I'll wait until the rush is over and then get one in early January with Christmas money. In the mean time I'll enjoy Radiohead's tunes.

That's probably the intention with the "pay what you want" idea, really...

and .aac are forms of lossless audio, I believe while s are lossy.

It's like comparing a DVD to a VHS. If you keep re-recording the VHS, the quality will suffer, but if you keep re-recording the DVD, the quality will not suffer or barely suffer from each new generation.

In that case, Lossless = DVD, Lossy = VHS.

ok.

It'll go into my iTunes, it'll be mp3s, right? You're saying the original source not being mp3s makes the mp3s better because of the superior source?

I believe so, yes.

If the songs are in a lossy format, you'll have to convert them to before putting them in iTunes, but the quality will be superior.
