Link: Radiohead frontman makes note of iTMS: "...Thom Yorke says they're looking forward to not having to make another album right away. He told Billboard.com, "It's always been album, album, album...with things like iTunes and people splitting up tracks, I kind of think that's good. I listen to music on random all the time..."

wait...wasnt it radiohead who wouldnt go on itms because they saw the albums as a whole and did not want them split up....unless im thinking of another band that said that around the time "hail to the thief" came out...anyone?

I think Linkin Park said that, but I'm not sure. If Radiohead did too, boy would that be embarassing? :P

Not entirely wrong :

This Reuters article reports that certain bands won't agree to sell albums by the song.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Green Day and Linkin Park are cited as bands unwilling to agree to Apple's iTunes Music Store terms which require individual song sales. The reason is said to be due to "creative" concerns (according to Mark Reiter with Q Prime Management Co):

"If you download a single, you may ignore the other tracks on the album," he said. "When our artists record a body of work, it's what they deem to be representative of their careers at that time."

The Reuters article is not available to read anymore.
