£5.00United Kingdom

first time i've paid for an album in years. i'm paying in part because i love this kind of original thinking - although i don't see it as a solution to the music industry's woes. i don't have much problem dealing with the ethical side of downloading music for free from a band who is already rich, but if they're going to continue to let us set the price i would probably pay a couple of quid in the future.

They should allow customers back to pay more if they feel the album is worth more.

It's the first Radiohead album I've paid for, and I've all of them on my computer.

Never bought a Radiohead album previously (used Russian sites) but wanted 'in' on the experience. When it came to pay £5 felt about right - prob more to justify my guilt!

I think it's a great way to generate sales and publicity. I'm interested to see how easy it is to download and how much people pay on average, I thought a fiver was fair enough.

It's a great idea and even if radiohead are all millionaires already I'll still pay them a decent price, a fiver seems fair since its way more than they'd normally get from an album released through a conventional record company, but still a lot cheaper for me.

It just seems TOO stingy to take it for nothing. They might not need the money but to their gesture of Here, take it I answer them with a measly but justified £5er. Its mannerz innit?

As a huge supporter of Radiohead's plan, I chose a very principled price. Some may think that only £5 is not nearly enough for the record, but I believe that it would be counterproductive for me to pay more for the record than I would in a record store. A major objective of their experiment is to make buying music a better deal for fans, so it only makes sense that I should pay a little less than the typical price. Really, since artists typically see no more than £1 of the profits from the sale of an album, anything greater than £1 is better for the artist than whatever they get from the record companies.

I intended to pay the minimum, give it a listen and then go back and pay what I thought it was worth. In the end I just payed what I thought was a fair price for the artist to receive for the product which is probably far more than they would receive from a record company.

seems like a reasonable price for the music with out any of the middle men taking their cut, and without having to pay for the media - non of this "it cost the same regardless of if you end up with a shiney disk and pretty art work" rubish!

Little use for vinyl, not much use for MP3 either. Plan to download and burn the tracks to an ordinary CD-R and listen to them that way.

Depending on how I like the tracks, more than likely will buy the standalone CD version when it comes out. Hopefully, it will be a vesion of the boxed set without the vinyl. - Not much point Radiohead expending the resources to make and send vinyl if I don't want it, economically or environmentally.

Its the respect I have for Radiohead that means I'm not going to pay pennies for this. Very tricky as it forces us to question the actual value to us personally, rather than forcing a retrospective moan.

I assume that this will be about $1 a song, which would probably be the market value in the States.
