£0.00United Kingdom

I was actually willing to pay, but the site kept giving me error messages when I tried to use my card to pay.

Discbox?: No

great idea - paid nothing because i didn't want to enter my credit card details etc. If it's any good i probably would buy the discbox too.

I'll buy it properly when I know it's definitely MP3 and it's not completely shite (which I'm sure it won't be)

I wanted the boxset but £40?! They've had so much of my money over the years this is just the final kick in the teeth. I wouldn't mind if 50% went to charity!!!

I paid zero - simply cos I want to hear the album to see if I like it. If I don't, I delete, and if I do I delete then go and buy the CD.

Kinda feel bad - would have paid more - didn't think you'd actually give it away, however awesome idea, I wouldn't normally buy a radiohead album.

I expect it will be terrible like most of the rest of their stuff so I wanted to bring down the average price...

If I like it, I'll buy it on vinyl. If they weren't giving it away, I'd just be downloading it from P2P anyway.

Like others will no doubt have said, i'll pay now and pay normal price for the general copy later on...

If you see a tenner on the floor, you pick it up and put it in your pocket. You don't hand it in to the police in the vein hope that it's owner will reclaim it.

It's a brave move by Radiohead to give away their latest offering but i believe people will still pay something. I didn't pay simply because i didn't have to. Had the album been "normal" price, i would have paid it. If the album is outstanding then i may consider buying the boxset or the CD when released.

Radiohead are pro-active campaigners of all manner of environmental charities. Maybe they should have thought about what they were trying to achieve a bit more before pushing ahead with this publicity stunt... lets say 100,000 people download the album. If 50% of people paid for the album (even at just £1) Radiohead would almost certainly have recouped their losses to produce the album (If they don't, the boxset will see to that at £40!) and paid themselves for their time although, in fairness, this is something they don't seem to bothered about. Well done Radiohead!

Lets face it, there's only studio time, the website to maintain to pay for. There isn't a record company taking an inflated percentage of the cost here, packaging involved etc etc.

If the remaining 50% of people simply took the album for free, that's a huge loss of revenue that could potentially have been directed to charity. No one would have been put off by a minimum donation of £0.99p, especially when you look at iTunes charging £0.79p per track!! That money (£99,000 if we assume 100,000 download. The internet is accessible worldwide though. I imagine the downloads will be in the millions simply because it's free!) could have been directed to charites. It's a shame that such an intelligent band appear to have missed such an obvious trick.

I didn't actually mean to pay £0 for it. I put down for £3, it asked me to register, and it reset the price when I'd finished and I didn't realise. But I shall be buying the CD, so that'll make up for it. Was annoyed at file quality, I think they should have based file quality on price people paid...ie you pay £1 and you get 96 or whatever, £2 gets you 128kbps, £3 gets you the 160, I would have paid more if I was getting higher quality files because it just annoys me when it's quieter on randomizer on my iPod. Quality album like.
