"In Rainbows" is almost here

A few days ago I pre-ordered Radiohead’s new album, “In Rainbows”. I paid £4.25 (about $8.60). Today I got the following email:

THANK YOU FOR ORDERING IN RAINBOWS. THIS IS AN UPDATE.

YOUR UNIQUE ACTIVATION CODE(S) WILL BE SENT OUT TOMORROW MORNING (UK TIME). THIS WILL TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO THE DOWNLOAD AREA.

HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE DOWNLOAD:

THE ALBUM WILL COME AS A 48.4MB ZIP FILE CONTAINING 10 X 160KBPS DRM FREE MP3s.

I’m a bit disappointed that it’s only 160 Kbps when Amazon’s MP3 downloads are 256 Kbps, although I doubt whether the difference will be too noticeable.
