Today I downloaded the latest (Amazing) Music CD from one of my favorite bands, Radiohead. With the release, Radiohead is breaking new ground in how they are selling their music.
- They are cutting out the middleman between them and their fans (bye bye distributors and sleazy music industry) and
- They’re not selling the music, they’re using the honor system by allowing you to pay them what you think the album is worth.
Personally, I figured around $10.00 was a fair price however my guess is only die-hard fans will pay something using this new “Honor System.” Who knows? I’d be curious to see how much they make off this?
Anyway, after the online payment, a link was provided, and I downloaded the CD in just a few minutes:
The Music? VERY Groovy! Great tunes, unique and should please both old and new Radiohead fans. Each and every track is fantastic! Two groovy thumbs up!
