£3.10United Kingdom

I like to pay around 5 pounds for CD. I chose 3 pounds for this because I'm not getting the physical product and am going to buy the CD when it comes out anyway.

I'd like to buy the CD when it comes out or at least get 256kps MP3s. 160 DRM-free is ok for now, so with the further purchase in mind, I opted for a lower amount. If I am quite taken with the album and the quality I may buy it again to up the amount I paid, but I've always been wary of buying downloads anyway. At least if you get sick of a CD you can sell it in, with downloads your only recourse is DELETE.

Didn't like their last two albums, wouldn't have bought this one if it hadn't been choose-your-own-price.

Wouldn't this be easier and/or a lot less interesting if we could pay after hearing the album?

Superb idea by Radiohead.

I would pay more if the download was lossless quality (e.g.: FLAC); I might buy the CD if I really like the album.

Radiohead may not need my money, but I see it as the best way to show the labels that we like being given a choice, and are prepared to pay a fair price for music.

I'd be happy to add to my contribution once I heard it - as long as it isn't the atonal meanderings of recent releases. Perhaps there should be an option to give more after hearing it, or maybe less.

Slightly cheaper than Itunes. lots cheaper than shops, a more than fair price I'd say for the band given they may only around £1.50 per album from EMI.

I think this is a fair price for a album that has no physical form and minimal distribution costs - there will alway be wankers that pay nothing but I hope the average price that emerges will be used as a benchmark to online pricing in the future, this will be a more realistic way of combatting illegal file sharing

I'd pay the going rate for it...as long as it is not full of tracks like Pulk/Pull revolving doors.

I've always loved Radiohead's artwork - but i'm not sure i'd want to spend 40 quid on a discbox so it can sit around getting dusty!

I think its a fantastic idea, the notion of an honesty box for a potentially free download. I think a fiver is a fair price for this experiment. I wish Radiohead every luck with it. Interesting what chart placing it will get - is it qualifies (?), and also what chart placing the cd will get when it gets released next year.

Based on the last 3 (I have to say below par) albums... I think £5 is fair. If I was basing it on 'The Bends' and 'OK Computer' I would have paid £20 because they are the two best albums ever recorded!

I paid £5. This is because a download would normally cost about £8. The artist, at the very maximum would receive £2 (probably a lot less). By paying £5 directly to the artist, I have saved £3 and the artist has gained £3 which to my mind seems fair and equitable. Here,

I think it's a very smart move - Radiohead have taken a huge moral high ground but have also given their fans the opportunity to do the same.

I spent ages trying to decide the appropriate amount. I have no doubts it will work very well for them. They'll make a lot of money and there are no distributors/middlemen involved.

It's much easier for them as they have nothing to lose and a huge international fan-base.

How does this approach help the brand-new act with no fan-base and no money to record their first tracks?
