Radiohead: Limited Edition

Does anyone know what the Limited Edition includes, in the new release on Tuesday? $8.00 more for more songs or a DVD may be reasonable, but I cannot find any info. Thanks!

According to the ad in this month's Blender, the limited edition is different packaging and includes a fold-out poster and lyric book.

Not a whole lot extra, but I will be getting the limited edition.

I saw the limited edition in stores. The problem is that it's not in a CD case, so it will be hard to store on a shelf. The package is about the size of a DVD, but much flimsier.

Best Buy will have the limited edition for $12.99.

If it had a DVD or extra songs I would buy it, but a cheap case and a fold out poster do nothing for me.

I've been getting the limited editions of the other albums, so you bet I'll lay out my cash for this one.. (Even more surprising since I rarely put down cash for albums.)

I'll have to see it before I purchase it...

Kid A's Limited Edition was not as good as the CD packaging. It was like a little children's book with some early artwork for Kid A.

Amnesiac's Limited Edition was much better. It came as a library book from the future, complete with pages that appeared torn and a bookmark with birthdays of people the band members either worked with or knew.

Hmm... I'll have to decide if the extra 4 bucks is worth it...

So, it's exactly like Kid A and Amnesiac's limited editions with those book type things?

That's what I'm assuming. I wish (at the very least) it would include a DVD single of the video for "There There".

Can anyone describe the Limited Editions for the other 3 albums (OK Computer, The Bends, Pablo Honey)?

I've bought the last two limited editions, and while they don't really have any extra tracks or anything, I've enjoyed the packaging. I'm sure I'll pick up the LE for this, as it can be found pretty cheap online. Storage used to be an issue, but I finally gave up and got a seperate shelf for LE's/digipaks etc. Now all of the Radiohead and REM le's can have their own home.

My Limited Edition came with:

That fold-out paper CD package thingy
A white "Hail to the Thief" T-Shirt
A "Hail tot he Thief" poster.

Pretty good for what I bought it for (US$14.75 total)

I also bought the limited edition of Kid A and Amnesiac. Now I have a set - yay!

Where did you pick this up? I'm pretty sure the LE's at places like best buy and circuit city don't have the shirt and poster.

I went by both places today and I can't see how that little package would include all of those fantastic things.

The normal CD packaging has the map spread over the pages and then a lyric sheet attached to it. Unless you can cash in on Grimfarrow's deal, I don't see this LE being worth it.

Edit: Check that, maybe his deal is better cause he's in Hong Kong...

Yup! Got it in HK, and it came wrapped in a plastic bag with the t-shirt in it (you can choose white/black t-shirts). Then at the counter they give you the poster. I think the posters are gone though.

Well that's hardly fair! How come the HK people get a t-shirt?

I tend to prefer the regular version just for the storage option.

As much as I love Radiohead (I'm actually buying their CD as proof), I decided to save $4 and get the regular edition....

I got the regular version. No interest in the fold out map, and the case is crap. I'd rather save $3 and get a jewel case to boot.
