Radiohead is breaking new ground by offering their latest album to download for whatever price you choose to pay, even zilch. (A physical CD, whose pricing has been undetermined, is due in January.) But while the gimmick may have the industry and fans buzzing, it's the music that will keep your attention. Although In Rainbows has plenty of the cool, moody atmospherics that Radiohead is famous for—the soulful, sexy ballad "Nude" will totally put you in a dream state—it also finds the band displaying rhythmic flair on the opener, "15 Step," and rocking out U2-style on "Bodysnatchers," the worthiest track.
