Radiohead Gets It

The web is buzzing about Radiohead offering their latest album for download using a “You name the price (Even if it is zero)” strategy. Scary if you own a music label. What I like just as much is the web site that tells the story clearly but keeps a stylish edge.

It “tells the story clearly but keeps a stylish edge”? Hmm, I have to disagree on that one. I don’t think it’s a good user experience at all. Very confusing site…

i agree, button placement doesn’t make any sense

WTF! Please post a “You might go blind” disclaimer. Jesus.

I love the Radiohead website they really have shown a new direct way to use the web for promotion of their product without all the messy bits..they are musicians..they want to sell their music .. get an audience ..the design looks like an LP cover it serves their purposes well. Let’s see what commercial reaction they get.

Wow! The site looks like my 2 yo son just threw up on my monitor. Sorry, but as for a great UX experience, it lacks everything except crap.

Yo!

It’s not about “a good user experience” it’s about NEW user experience!

Seems like it’s worked out for them: “What the band got was an average of $8 per album sold, bringing estimates of profit to about $10 million. Not too shabby for one week. The number of albums sold in the past week exceeded the launch week sales of its three previous albums combined.” — From Mashable
