Radiohead's name-your-price download strategy, in which the band offered its latest album, "In Rainbows," to consumers for whatever price they chose, has been the talk of the music world for months.
Now at least one major artist is following closely in the U.K. band's ground-breaking footsteps. On Sunday, Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor announced on his Web site, nin.com, that he was immediately making available a new four-part album, "Ghosts I-IV," containing 36 instrumental tracks spanning nearly two hours. The music was made available in five configurations at five price levels, ranging from free (for downloads of nine songs) to $300 (for a box set that includes two CDs, a DVD, an optical disc containing a slide show, and four vinyl albums).

' self‑titled sure to be a hit among all the pop‑punk lovers out there. The whole album is an anthem to anyone who has ever feel repressed by parents/guardians (and really, what teenager hasn't?). Their songs are full of teenage angst captured in fun catchy music.
The lyrics of their hit single "Check Yes Juliet" describe a present day Romeo and Juliet problem. The song include verses like "Run baby, run. Don't ever look back. They'll tear us apart if you give them the chance." and "Just sneak out and don't tell a soul goodbye." In another single "Skyway Avenue" the song is about leaving a boring town and starting something new.
