They have a good selection of albums at £3 to download including:

Snow Patrol - A Hundred Million Suns, Eyes Open, Final Straw
Rhydian
Take That - The Circus, Beautiful World
Mamma Mia Sountrack
Kings of Leon - Only by the Night
Coldplay - Viva la Vida, X & Y and more, about 40 - 50 in total

I can't seem to get the direct link to work, but if you go to their main page there is a section near the top right hand corner of the screen to visit the MP3 shop.

Voted Hot, £3.00 is graet for a full Album, I usually buy the CD then download it straight to I tunes and alike straight away. I still listen to most music in the car though, so the cd is not dead.

No DRM = Hot, yay Amazon - about time the record industry got a lesson about fair use.
#3
Excuse my thickness - what is DRM?? :oops:

Digital Rights Management. It prevents you from making legitimate copies of music you have purchased, and from playing it on other equipment. It is evil and the main reason I still buy CD's.

HOT. Great find. thanks.
#7
That's a fantastic price, I think I'll certainly be picking up a few of these.
#8
Just got Snow Patrol for £3, bargain.

Voted Hot

Wonder whether Take That is a mis-price ? £0.69 per track (there are 11 tracks on the album) or £3 for the whole lot ???
#10
£3 is not bad at all but you cant't beat mp3sparks (allofmp3 in disguise) for my money. Around $2 per album.

Probably not, i.e. most people would only buy the singles, perhaps 2 or 3 tracks... so about £2 worth... but when they see that buying all the songs is only £1 more they go for that instead... but really they are spending £1 more than they would've normally (rather than saving £3/4 pounds on 69p x 11 tracks).

This is just the sort of kick the industry needs. Hot.

The industry decided its what they wanted after they released how dominant Apple had become with iTunes. Thats why everyone else is getting DRM free tracks before Apple does.

That website is not legit though. You might as well download them off a torrent rather than give them the money. They dont pay the artists.
#15
Blimely. When did the UK service launch? Have to say that I've been somewhat envious of our American cousins who have had DRM-free mp3s from Amazon for ages.

Not if you have this software!

great price voted hot.

mp3sparks / all of mp3 etc all pay money to the russian music fed (ROMS) - the music bodies in the USA however will not accept the money. illegal in uk? - yes/no - there hasn't been a court case yet to decide.

It annoys me though - businesses can do whatever they like and expolit other countries for cheap labour/goods etc. Average person in the street cannot.
#18
Recommended websites for mp3sparks/all of mp3 etc to enable a bit of research please
#19
Amazingly hot!

With no DRM you'll be able to burn this to disc time and time again - no wonder Woolworths can't compete!
#20
Fairly hot, however the mp3's are 256kbps - good enough, but not CD-quality (highest mp3 bitrate would be 320kbps).

Side-note:
OK, a lot of people might say CD quality is 128kbps - and they wouldn't be quite right. It's all down to what you listen through and how much of a musical ear you have. I'm not much of an audiophile, but I can quite clearly hear the difference between a 128kbps and a 256kbps mp3, and on complex pieces there's a difference between 256kbps and 320kbps as well.

I wouldn't expect Amazon or any other online retailer to sell lossless tracks simply because they'd be impracticaly large, but 320kbps would be very nice indeed.

Still, voted hot purely because it's so damn cheap - these are actually realistic prices for downloadable albums in my opinion.

great voted hot just got mamma mia been wanting it for a while thanks

Dammit, you've just cost me a small fortune in mp3's!!!!! Voted hot, rep added!

a bit odd how a ten track album costs £7.90 but to buy the tracks individually would cost £6.90. ie. Glasvegas

Just downloaded Razorlight and they're 320kbps - don't know if they differ from album to album though.

This is AMAZINGLY hot for legal, DRM free downloads in the UK.

Woolworths are making a HUGE loss on these downloads at this introductory price.

Get them while you can!:thumbsup:

Which sane person would pay for any kind of digital download? when you can download any cd you want in minutes for free.
Anyone could learn how to use torrents in ten minutes or less.

Oh and before anyone says "moral's" this or "conscience" that , give the 3 quid saved to a charity that could use it and not to feed spoilt wan$%^s drug habbits or car collections.

Ok, morals and conscience aside on stealing, how about :

> a criminal record, fines and even a prison sentence.
> being cut off by your ISP
> viruses
> inconsistent quality

I'm trying hard not to swear right now, I'm a musician and have been signed to a major label. The idea that all musicians have car collections or drug habits is retarded. Most of us are hard working and like anyone we'd like to get paid for the time and effort we invest. People like you are parasites, you don't even acknowledge you are in the wrong which is amazing. Thanks to thieving scumbags like you, musicians cannot now rely on any support from labels for touring and recording as labels now cannot rely on a return from even a successful investment.

Oh and people that use the "Oh they make money from tshirts and ticket sales", again that's pure rubbish. A band makes a loss on any tour smaller than 1000 seat theatres due to promoters and other costs.
#33
Voted cold because there isn't an option to download this in lossless and this is too much to pay for an inferior product, regardless of what other sites are selling it for.

I really don't understand why people would pay for mp3 downloads when they're vastly inferior to CD quality, and you're locked into an ageing format.
If i buy music i'd still like to be able to listen to it in decent quality in a few years. Not be stuck with some ****** quality Mp3s.
Not to mention a lot of people manage to "lose" their Mp3 collections at some point or another, making CDs an even better choice...

As mentioned earlier, labels choose not to collect the money rather than them not giving it. It is legal in Russia and importing MP3 files into this country is legal, unlike downloading via torrents.

The record labels aren't shy in taking people to court for illegal downloads, so if they thought they had a cat in hells chance of winning then they would have taken a handful of big users to court. The fact that they have concentrated instead, on threatening MasterCard / visa / any other payment providers into not processing payments speaks volumes.

Yeah but don't forget they offered miniscule amounts of money, basically they are saying to the record companies "You can pay to record an album at £400,000, we'll then just copy your IP and sell it and keep all the profits". Also just because the corrupt, morally bankrupt Russian government turns a blind eye does not make it right.

Last time I looked at allofmp3 I couldn't use it as paypal no longer worked - how do you pay these russian sites now? By credit card? Is it safe?

Premium rate phone numbers. I think it is the only method that is still left open to them. On the plus side though you don't have to give out any sensitive payment info to them.

I managed to buy a couple of albums off the US site before Amazon got wind of the fact that anyone with a phantom US address could use a UK credit card to buy from it.

There is a grey area in current Russian law with regard to royalties for recorded works and for live broadcasts. Allofmp3 etc pay the lower royalties relating to live broadcasts as it argues that downloads are 'streamed live' from its sites. Naturally, the copyright enforcers are having none of this and have refused to accept the lower royalties from ROMS as that would be tacit agreement of the correct royalties being applied. The Russian legislature is not in a hurry to patch this gap. It is down to your personal morality as to whether the mafia (drugs, human trafficking and mp3=$$$$) behind these websites are pirates or entrepreneurs. It is also your call as to whether you want to trust these shady organisations with your cc details.

Paypal and the main cc companies are US based - being Mastercard and Visa. Both are under extreme local pressure not to have anything to do with these sorts of organisations. The workaround was to buy 'gift vouchers' through an intermediate with your credit card but even this is proving difficult as anything relating to allofmp3 and the like is monitored and blacklisted constantly.
