saw these also a few good albums for £3 inc kings of leon new one.

DRM free as well.

Not meaning to offend you bigflump, but I think that's a rip off on Amazon'z part.
If I download 10 then it's cost me £5.90. I'd rather buy CDs for a little bit more and have better sound quality. And what does it cost them? Maybe 5p in royalties and the rest in their pocket?
Just my opinion, but I haven't seen a download price I've liked yet.

No offence taken :thumbsup:
I prefer singles becuase i often don't like every track on a album.
With singles i get the tracks i want.

I heard about this on Radio 2 today. Not bad!

Me too,,Chris Evans :thumbsup:

Voted cold for the same reasons as i posted on the £3 album downloads thread...

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 they offered this in lossless it might be worth it, but as the offer stands this is too much to pay for an inferior product, regardless of what other sites are selling it for.

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...

MP3 format is ideal for most people. I can't distinguish it from CD quality, but maybe that's just my ears. I HATE having loads of CDs cluttering up my house and getting scratched, each with one or two tracks that I might listen to. I listen to music far more than before MP3.

The other aspect is the environment. CDs are just not environmentally friendly.

This is just the right kind of price for me and I will definitely try it.

You have pointed out why downloads are not for you. You have not made a single coherent point why this deal for downloaded tracks is poor compared to what is available on the market.
Not everyone is an audiophile or has the equipment that details the compression employed to distinguish from CDs ripped by hand. As for storage how much work or additional cost is it to burn 4GBs of downloads to DVD? The advantage being also, you have fewer disks to keep track of.
Please bear also in mind that a lot of music consumed today is intentionally ephemeral. I doubt that anyone will be listening to Crazy Frog on their Linn decks in 20 years.
