Green Plastic Radiohead

If you don’t own Radiohead’s 2001 release, Amnesiac, then here’s your chance. Amazon is selling the 11 track album for $1.99 in their MP3 store.

I bought mine on Amazon 7 yrs ago for over $40.
[Limite Edition... Mmmm]
Green Plastic is the new At Ease
Now RSS rules, but back in 2001 mailing lists were still going strong with music fans. I was 21 and i was subscribed to mailing lists of fans of Björk, Sonic Youth, Tricky, and of course Radiohead.
A few days before Amnesiac’s street date an email arrived with various Radiohead news and at the end it said something like this: “And what is this link doing here?? http://www.somelinkicantremember.com/~bla/foo.html”
And at that link there was the whole of Amnesiac in MP3. I still had dialup. It took maybe two or three hours to get it all.
It had Pulk/Pull and Hunting Bears and all that weirdness, and Knives Out didn’t at first sound as great as it did when they played in Tel Aviv a few months before that, so i thought that at least some of it may be fake, and when it hit the shelves, i immediately bought it in the fancy book package and i was surprised to hear that the MP3′s were real.
If you can find that email in some archive, it would be extra great.
Oh, now i recalled something else: A few days before that mailing list message i tried to get “Life in a Glasshouse” from Napster. When i finally got it, it turned out to be a Lifehouse song. It wasn’t so bad, actually, but i don’t remember which one it was.
Oh, the days of dialup.
yeah, agreed. this site gives at ease a good work over. keep it up
It’s free, when you download it.
Type site:mediafire.com amnesiac on Google and you can download it via MediaFire.
Their most underrated album, better than Kid A, I think.
Amnesiac is less acidic and dadá than Kid A, it’s much darker and politically dense. Just a masterpiece.
Life in a Glasshouse is the reason I’m still breathing.
[Irrelevant PS: Amnesiac now costs $6 on Amazon...]
Their most underrated by far! One of my top favorites, and the B-sides are amazing as well.
