What is that sound?

Well there's two sounds, one is the sound of RIAA execs jumping out of windows and the other is the wonderful sound of music flowing free of DRM at an affordable price with all the profits going to the people who deserve it the most the musicians.

Radiohead a popular band has released there latest album for download at the unheard of cost of "what you want to pay for it". Estimates are that they have made between 6 and 10 million in the first week at a average of between $5 and $8 per album. What's interesting to note is your average artists receives 50 cents for CD's purchased in a store. Offering it online is relatively cheap and probably only amounts to a few pennies per album for cost...

It's about time a big name act stepped up and did this, hopefully others will follow suit and music can go back to being music instead of the over priced crap the fat cats attempt to cram down your throat.
