Radiohead doesn’t need your 2 cents… just $8

Personally, we love/admire/envy a band that can announce a new album Monday with a Saturday release, then suddenly make it available Friday morning. And while the intrawebnet will be buzzing with reviews/opinions from endless unqualified “bloggers” and whatnot, they aren’t reading it nor do they even care.

Radiohead didn’t release this album as an up-and-coming band seeking approval from a failing industry. There wasn’t even enough lead time for any legitimate publication to write about the upcoming release. They simply don’t give a shit about your reviews or all the comparisons to their past albums. Why should they?

Even if every single review panned this album they would still sell out all over the world. Does this look like someone who cares about your opinion?

If you spent $8 just to bash the music… congrats the music industry needs you and all the other “music” blogs who write about the exact same thing. Way to go! Saturate the market with drivel and destroy all legitimacy in reviews!

If you spent $8 with expectations of another Pablo Honey or OK Computer, you’re always going to be disappointed. Radiohead is still together and making music because they never let outside influences take away the musician’s need to experiment and be creative. Radiohead isn’t attempting to replicate past albums, therefore no one can compare them side by side and measure their success.

If you spent $8 with no expectations, but rather simple curiosity then you will never be disappointed.
Radiohead has fans, artistic freedom and plenty of money… prioritized in that order.
