Do we have any Radiohead fans?

Well if you guys didn't get it yet, http://inrainbows.cow is letting you download the album for however much you want. This article regarding OK Computer and In Rainbows has recently come up though and is quite interesting.

Here's the link : http://puddlegum.net/radiohead-01-and-10/

Radiohead: 01 and 10
October 20th 2007 by Flick
Ten years after OK Computer shocked the world, Radiohead released In Rainbows on October 10 (10/10). Though no one was expecting the album to be released until 2008, Radiohead announced In Rainbows just ten days in advance. In Rainbows, which consists of ten letters, has ten tracks, and would be downloadable from a rumored ten servers.
Radiohead preceded the release of In Rainbows with nine cryptic messages. They repeatedly emphasized X, the Roman Numeral for ten, in phrases such as “March Wa X”, and “Xendless Xurbia”. The tenth message was posted on October 10 with a photo of the band drinking tea.
There has been a lot of speculation over Radiohead’s emphasis of ten surrounding the release of In Rainbows. One theory suggests that Radiohead was typifying a binary code of ones and zeros, 1010101010. This has come to be known as the Binary Theory, also called the TENspiracy by some.
Puddlegum first addressed the Binary Theory in Radiohead: 1010101010. Someone associated with Thom Yorke contacted Puddlegum, sharing Thom’s reaction to Puddlegum’s article:
“The meaning behind all of this is right in front of our faces, we’re just overlooking it. [Thom] has been expecting an article much like this one for a couple of years, as have I. But I’m willing to wager he’ll have fun waiting a few more. On the other hand, it seems to annoy him that no one ‘gets it’ yet, given the mountain of clues.”
Ten days after our original article, we have come to believe that OK Computer and In Rainbows were meant to complement each other. During the writing and recording process of OK Computer, Radiohead used the working title of Zeros and Ones. If OK Computer is represented by 01, and In Rainbows is represented by 10, then we have 01 and 10. In binary code 01 and 10 complement each other.
Consider that In Rainbows was meant to complement OK Computer, musically, lyrically, and in structure. We found that the two albums can be knit together beautifully. By combining the tracks to form one playlist, 01 and 10, we have a remarkable listening experience. The transitions between the songs are astounding, and it appears that this was done purposefully.
The lyrics also seem to complement each other. There appears to be a concept flowing through the 01 and 10 playlist. Ideas in one song is picked up by the next, such as “Pull me out of the aircrash,” and “When I’m at the pearly gates, this will be my videotape.”
To create the 01 and 10 playlist, begin with OK Computer’s track one, Airbag, and follow this with In Rainbow’s track one, 15 Step. Alternate the albums, track by track, until you reach Karma Police on OK Computer, making All I Need the tenth track on the 01 and 10 playlist. Follow Karma Police with Fitter Happier from OK Computer, for tracks eleven and twelve. These two tracks act as a bridge between the first ten and the following ten tracks on the 01 and 10 playlist. Then continue to alternate the albums again, picking up with Faust Arp on In Rainbows, with Electioneering on OK Computer as the following track.
Radiohead - 01 and 10 playlist:
1. Airbag (OK Computer)
2. 15 Step (In Rainbows)
3. Paranoid Android (OK Computer)
4. Bodysnatchers (In Rainbows)
5. Subterranean Homesick Alien (OK Computer)
6. Nude (In Rainbows)
7. Exit Music (For A Film) (OK Computer)
8. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi (In Rainbows)
9. Let Down (OK Computer)
10. All I Need (In Rainbows)
11. Karma Police (OK Computer)
12. Fitter Happier (OK Computer)
13. Faust Arp (In Rainbows)
14. Electioneering (OK Computer)
15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)
16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)
17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)
18. No Surprises (OK Computer)
19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)
20. Lucky (OK Computer)
21. Videotape (In Rainbows)
22. The Tourist (OK Computer)

i'm a big fan...going to download the album today...I still put 'Stop Whispering' as my fav. song...with Fake Plastic Trees not far behind...I thought OK Computer was a great album as a whole suite, not like the individual songs on Pablo Honey or The Bends.

from a pure singles and 'pop music' effect standpoint, radiohead's earlier work stands out. Creep, High and Dry, My Iron Lung, Fake Plastic Trees...were all more 'single' friendly songs...while OK Computer was very album-based and I thought more catered to the pure fan, rather than the pop charts.

Granted I like all of Thom Yorke's early work too...which was a bit more pop-candyesque....I still like Radioheads' later album too...and I am sure I'll like the new one.

Radiohead is the best reminder we have today of the late 80's early 90's shoegazing era of guitar-heavy, plodding and methodic alternative music...

I miss those days...music is too bubblegum and forgettable now for the most part.

nicely said Creep was what hooked me in and the whole OK Computer album is what wowed me into staying. After that, i think it took a bit of time to like the other albums like amesiac and kid a.

I'm a huge Radiohead fan, I know "Kid Eh" is too. I think In Rainbows is pretty amazing, the best since OK Computer imo. It's the most complete "album" they've done in a long time; very compilation-esque, tough to pick any favorites but at the same time no bad tracks.

that's exactly what i thought when i heard it. i'm afraid i might get tired of it in the near future since i'm listening to the entire thing once a day. i've moved onto the playlist given by that site lately, and it's pretty bad ass as well

+1 on the best album since OK computer

Living in self-imposed cultural isolation, I just heard of this album yesterday, from a friend who has downloaded it.

I'll be buying it, and downloading it, within the next 24 hours.

I caught them last year at the Bonnaroo music festival - great experience.

Thanks for the background on the OK Computer interdigitation, can't wait to check it out. I'll be sure to tell my friend about it, although he's probably heard of the connection.

You're right, especially near the end. The last section:

15. Reckoner (In Rainbows)
16. Climbing Up The Walls (OK Computer)
17. House Of Cards (In Rainbows)
18. No Surprises (OK Computer)
19. Jigsaw Falling Into Place (In Rainbows)
20. Lucky (OK Computer)
21. Videotape (In Rainbows)
22. The Tourist (OK Computer)

Is really awesome together. Reckoner is an incredible track.

Ok, I'll bite - even though I think it's a case of drinking the Radiohead Kool-Ade...

For me, the band peaked with 'The Bends' and 'OK Computer' and while 'Kid A' was an interesting experiment, you really have to be in a certain mindset to listen to it - my wife hears noise and tells me to 'turn that crap off!'. If I hadn't loved the two preceding albums so much, I doubt I would have worked so hard to appreciate it.

That said, In Rainbows sounds great on the first couple of listens and I think I'm going to love this one. I optionally paid for it without hearing a note, so it had better be!

I'll try the above playlist - if nothing else at least half the tracks "OK Computer" will be awesome...

'Disc Box' price is 40 British Pounds. That's ~80 USD?

Is this correct? Why aren't they using Euros?

I think $10 USD would be good for the download. Have to consider that hefty price on the 'disc box'. What am I going to do with vinyl? Add to a land fill.
