Radiohead’s In Rainbows released 4 years ago today

It was exactly 4 years ago today that Radiohead released their 7th studio album In Rainbows.  On 1 October 2007, Jonny Greenwood announced in a brief post on Dead Air Space, “Well, the new album is finished, and it’s coming out in 10 days . . . We’ve called it In Rainbows“.

When the album was released  customers could Pay What You Want, followed by a standard CD release in most countries during the last week of 2007.  Did you pay to download In Rainbows?

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  • It was also the day I started my band as well as the day I made my first tutorial. Big day for me.

    Didn’t pay for the download, did buy the CD though, and intend to buy the LP at some point in the near future as its one of my favourite Radiohead albums.

    Well I was younger and didn’t have a credit card, so I don’t think I payed anything for it…I did buy the cd though eventually. That was around the time I was getting into radiohead…seems like so long ago.

    • killed/by/kyosti

      that was the album I played on my ipod basically every morning when I was attending university…It was pretty obsessive…

    I did not pay anything for the download, but I bought the In Rainbows vinyl.

    It’s just a gatefold cardboard sleeve, with a swirly pattern in the middle when it opens up. Discs are in each side. I was excited to get it after seeing the unboxing of the japanese version! I suppose it’s the same with the actual TKOL cd, no booklet for the rest of the world.

    I d/l at the recommendation of a friend of mine even though I wasn’t a fan. I think I paid about $10 for it and fell head-over-heels in love. The love affair continues… <3

    This was my first radiohead album that got me into them. I never got to see them on their tour, but I hope to change that soon enough….

  • afan

    I wish I was Radiohead fan 4 years ago, I would have been so excited of In Rainbow’s release and its unique releasing style. But I feel just as lucky Radiohead is still creating, that’s why I was in disbelief when TKoL came out, those moments are unforgettable…..

    Have a nice double 10 day!

    • I can remember downloading the second I got home from work that day. I think I paid around $10 or so for the album. I can remember listening to it again and again with my friends.

  • Austin

    Wow :p I’ve still been calling “In Rainbows” the new album even after the release of “The King of Limbs”. Its sad to see the time go as quick as it is

  • George

    Just picked up the new remix album, I was expecting the booklet that was in the Japanese release, but there’s nothing in it except the two discs :(

      Is it the same for the rest? pre-ordered mine some weeks ago, and I was hoping for the booklets.
