I wish I had something more fantastic to say other than "neat." I totally dig this idea, but I can't help but fear a looming April fool's joke in there somewhere… especially after the hoverboard thing. Then again, if logic serves me, smartphones get their data from satellites, and the app does stream it from somewhere, so it's not impossible. Who knows what airspace laws were bent to send a single satellite into space with the sole purpose of streaming music (which will do so for only a little less than a week).

Let's hope we get to see some other killer creative album releases. We've come a long way from artists giving it away for free like Nine Inch Nails's The Slip in 2008 or Radiohead's 2007 release In Rainbows, which allowed fans to pay what they wanted to obtain the album. In both instances, the albums did great.
Oh, almost forgot: Frusciante's album officially releases on April 8. I'll be hearing Enclosure real soon, for sure. Big fan here! So, what do you guys think of this musical spaceman stunt? Love it or hate it? Comment!
