    Anyone else been listening to this? I think it's a brilliant album and is much more accessible than most of radioheads other stuff. Seems likes its a more mellow/happy record compared to their others and pretty much all the songs are solid. Not as experimental as the other albums but it has this kind of beautiful/ethereal vibe to it.

    Favorite songs so far:

    15 step
    Bodysnatchers
    Nude
    Faust Arp (getting some beatles vibe with this one [​IMG])
    Reckoner
    All I Need
    Jigsaw Falling into Place
    Videotape

    Pretty much all of them [​IMG] Can't wait for disk two [​IMG] should be much more rockin'

    thoughts? opinions?

    how did you like it hadrian? I know you're a fan.

    So it's more Pablo Honey and less Amnesiac?

    It's not too beatles, just a touch.

    It's more bends/ok computer than anything else. Easiest album to listen to by them so if you haven't been a fan in the past give this one a try. Free download from www.radiohead.com


    I love the jazzy drums and sexy strings [​IMG]

    I think Oasis (blergh!) and Jamiroquai (YAY!) are the next bands to release free albums, right?

    It's more like Amnesiac in C major with added Jazz [​IMG] I'm loving it right now the more I listen to it. Like Cubin' I can't wait to here 'the rest' of the album when its officially out! [​IMG]

    I like In Rainbows. It reminds me of OK Computer which is by far my favorite album by them.

    Oasis are only rumoured it would be nice, but their new single "Lord Slow Me Down..whatever its called" is abysmal. The next band to release a free album are The Charlatans who use to be pretty big over here (use to be obsessed with them myself) but they kinda lost it with their last 2 albums but I've just heard their new single and it sounds like they're changing direction which is nice.

    As for In Rainbows, its beautiful! Its like the all the best songs from their last 3 records. Beautiful lyrics and music all the way through and Thoms singing is back to being brilliant. All I Need is easily their best song.

    I do have to say that I refer Kid A/Amnesiac to The Bends/Ok Computer but In Rainbows has outclassed them all for me now. Theres people out there winging about the bitrate of the MP3 (its free for fudge sake!) and that it doesn't sound like The Bends get over it, its been over 10 years.

    Probably one of their best albums, if not the best really.

    I'm a big fan of Radiohead and loved every albums (except Pablo Honey - only Creep was brilliant in it). Back in 2006 when I first heard Arpeggi / Videotape / Nude at shows and demos I was like "okay it's gonna be the OK Computer of 2007 !" and I'm damn happy I was kinda right.

    They made a melting pot of OK Computer, Kid A - Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief with a bit of The Eraser from Thom Yorke and In Rainbows was born. Amazing and I'm really glad I gave them 17€ to download the album. [​IMG]

    Don't know about Oasis(although I like their music) but Jamiroquai's Jay Kay once said "next time I release an album I'll sell it on the internet for 5 dollars". Jamiroquai is probably gonna ditch their label but not put out their stuff for free.

    In rainbows was pretty good, glad to see radiohead out of their electronica fetish which ruined the last two albums.

    http://www.inrainbows.com/Store/index3.htm

    If you don't want to pay a thing then just enter 0.00 then you'll receive a download links.

    I would give you a link to the actual download but its still considered illegal if you don't get it from the site and I'd hate to get GBAtemp into any trouble.

    Wow, one of the best albums of the band -and that's really something-, It's like the missing link between the "traditional" OK Computer and the experimental Kid A, awesome album... now I need to find out what's the best way to actually have it [​IMG]

    You were so right, Faust Arp sounds like Eleanor Rigby meets Goodnight, and...I even think that Thom's voice is double-tracked...that would be awesome [​IMG]

    My favorite song: Nude

    I've never been a big radiohead fan, and I LOVE that they did this. Fact is, I deleted it after one listen, maybe too soon, I dunno.

    I wish it was more rockish I guess. Much respect to Radiohead for putting this out free, because it showed me in a LEGAL way, that I wouldn't like it and waste my money.

    I know this probably seems like a Radiohead bash, but it's not. I was just thinking the other day about how cool it would be if my favorite bands did stuff like this. Then I would know whether it was worth the money without worrying about the RIAA. And yes, if I liked it, I was actually planning on putting a few bucks forward, it just turned out I didn't. I hope more artists take this approach.

    Glad most of you guys enjoyed it [​IMG]


    Yeah I understand ozzyzak, radiohead definitely aren't for everyone. It's good to hear you're behind this type of release. It's good for the band and the listeners in the end. Win win
