Three Imaginary Girls

So, after all the chatter and controversy of Radiohead releasing their latest album, In Rainbows, as a name-your-own-price download (Shatner must be proud) and said download being, well, downloaded many times at various prices from free to not-free, along with Radiohead releasing their own 2-CD version of the album, the buying public still hasn't had enough.

In Rainbows will be perched at the top of the Billboard album charts this week, making it Radiohead's second #1 album (the other being Kid A). Sure, it only sold 122,000 copies, but Radiohead, being ever crafty, released it during one of the other-release-free weeks of the year, so even these modest sales number mean #1. So, there you have it. Radiohead, whether you like it/believe it or not, are probably as good businessmen as they are musicians, proving yet again that art is nothing.
