radiohead's new one is out.

there's nothing better than the very first listen through an album that you've been waiting for since the beginning of time.

i saw that with this new album, them radioheads are experimenting with a very novel music delivery model, and have surely put the cat amongst the pigeons with this business of exclusively offering their album as a download from their website (nice colours!) on a "pay/donate as much/little as you feel it's worth" basis.

what's it like? are there lots of good new noises+beats the like of which humans have never heard before? that's what we expect of them, no?

it's not as innovative as their previous releases. it's self-referential at best and derivative at worst throughout the album. "bodysnatchers" is a dead ringer for "palo alto" off of the "airbag/how am i driving" EP. still, they manage to make even the derivative pieces sound fresh and new. it's a very good album but it probably won't reveal new musical worlds like, say, "kid a" did.

the distribution concept is interesting but i really feel there were some crucial details they should have released ahead of time. for example, the bitrate is low (160) compared to what most people would rip a CD at. then again, they pulled from the source material so for 160s they sound damn clean.

additionally, no album art. i didn't expect my $15 to go towards massively compressed files with no artwork. if i'd known these details, i'd've paid less. fortunately the spouse already whipped up a quick bit of album art based on the album's website graphics. still, for $15, they should have delivered.

my bliss outweighs my annoyance, though.

if you can get your hands on one track just to wash it across your palette like a wine taster, i recommend "reckoner." if you like the sip, buy the bottle.
