Not sure what the legality of "illegally" downloading an album if you own the real CD.. Sometimes I download an album just to save ripping it :P

you buy an older cd and its generally more expensive ynless its been re-released at mid price......because they aint getting no bulk discount........

why would you expect the mp3 be £5 if the cd is £9?

4 quid for cd and paper?

no thats set by the retailer.......occasionally the label may do a promotion or re-release an album at mid price/budget but that is usually to do with invigorating more sales
