    Fresh off the digitized, DIY success of In Rainbows comes the multi-format, import-only reissuing of Radiohead's first seven records—from their "Creep"-y 1993 breakthrough, Pablo Honey, to the sprawling soundscapes of 2003's, Hail to the Thief. Now available for pre-order on radioheadstore.com are three Christmas-appropriate options: a limited CD box set presented in digipak sleeves (approximately $83), a digital download of high quality, DRM-free MP3s (approx. $73), and an ultra-limited USB stick carved in the shape of Radiohead's maniacal bear mascot (approx. $166). All of which are available on December 10. Here's hoping you were nice this year; because that bear sure is enticing despite the weak exchange rate.

    "We are particularly excited about the USB stick," Parlophone's managing director, Miles Leonard, told Billboard.com. "[It] gives fans an easy and portable way to carry the box set and provides another way of bridging the world between on-line and off-line content."

    Speaking of overpriced (but oh-so-pretty) Radiohead products, the made-to-order "discbox" version of Radiohead's latest album is due out early next month and is still available through inrainbows.com. Unlike all of the above, it includes two heavyweight LPs housed in a hardback book and slipcase.
