Radiohead – In Rainbows

November 24th, 2007 · No Comments · Alt-rock, Best of 2007, Indie, MP3s, Music, post-rock, Psychedelia

Radiohead and the art of modern marketing 10/10 How much is music worth? Not the CD it’s printed on or the cover art, and certainly not the plastic jewel case – but the music itself?
