The site has a very helpful help system when it comes to ordering - it simply has an empty 'amount' field for you to fill in with a ? next to it. Clicking it produces a message saying "It's up to you.". Clicking the ? next to that takes you to another page with "No really. It's up to you."
I decided £5 was an appropriate amount to spend on the album. I shortly received an email confirming the pre-order:

I don't even like Radiohead, but I am going to buy this album to support the idea.

I tried to dowload the new album with a download manager. It gave and error and then when I tried to get it again it told me my code had been used.
Looks like Download managers are a no go. Oh and I was using download them all.
I was very looking forward to hearing the new album today :(
I hope you enjoy yours.
