In Rainbows Album Artwork
No CD would be complete without album art. Unfortunately, the In Rainbows download was a bare bones 10 track zip file, leaving your In Rainbows collection quite naked. But no worries, fans of Radiohead have released their own album art for In Rainbows. It even includes the "official" CD cover.
