£4.00United States

Seemed like a good price, for me, as an American.

The band has never ripped off its fans, in recorded quality or live performance. It's time to return that favor.

i love radiohead, and knowing that the majority of these quid are going to support the band... not the label, makes me extremely giddy with delight. long live radiohead :)

I'm currently losing control of my body because of this music.

£4.40United States

I chose 4.40 because it is about US$9.00, which I think is a fair price for any downloadable music. This seems like a very good deal for Radiohead since they are not tied to a label and should get most of the money. $9.00 is the target price I would like to see for 256k DRM-free albums in iTunes.

I paid about $10 US to preorder the download of the album, which is at or a little above the going rate for DRM-enabled music files on most online stores. Bravo to Radiohead for this move; it takes a set of brass balls. It's great to be able to give money to the band instead of having their record company take 90% of the profit.

Approximately 1 USD / track. A fair price.

I understand that Radiohead gave the option to pay nothing, but it's a matter of respect to give at least a little bit. It's not free to record, set up websites, and purchase bandwidth. It is ridiculous to call the discbox exorbitantly priced; it actually contains physical material which must be produced, and one could expect to pay more in a typical market situation for such extensive material.

would have paid more if I were doing better financially, still I think and hope the band will make more off me this way than if I had paid retail

I arbitrarily picked five pounds; a little over 10 dollars american. Less than what I'd have to pay for a CD at a store but it appears all or most of the money is going right to the band. Since labels take (steal) most of the dough, even two dollars american would probably be a be a bigger cut than what the band would get with a traditional record deal. This is a great idea, I hope more artists jump on board - Trent Reznor has already hinted this is similar to what he wants to do when his contract is up.

radiohead is basically doing an official leak for this album, which is clearly a smart move on their part. There was still be a constant demand for this album and once the official vinyl and cd's start rolling in, it will be just like releasing it on record first.

The selfless offering is one born out of the interdependence between band and fans. Without a dedicated fanbase, this would have never been a possibility. The music speaks for itself, it's not about money, it's about transformation.

Ten American dollars (+/-) for the band. Matching amount donated to the New Orleans recovery effort (exact charity to be determined later). Twenty American dollars for conscientious human beings. Win/win situation. Thanks.

I chose to give around $10 American, but I am still undecided on buying the discbox. Otherwise I would've given more. And, oh yeah, Radiohead rocks. And so does this idea. In this day in age its possible for any mildly successful band to do this, but no one has the cojones. Its good that bands like Radiohead can innovate like this not only in music but in their self-representation.

I figure that's the true price of an album's worth of music. Even better if all of it goes to the band.
