Old news I know, but I’m still catching up for the last few weeks. I’ve been looking forward to this since the initial announcement and although I think that the cost of individual songs are still prohibitive ($2.39), a full, DRM-free album for $17.99 doesn’t seem to be too bad.
I’ve made a few purchases so far which have all been local artists. Opshop’s latest album is brilliant and sounds a little like a U2 album. And I also picked up Hollie Smith’s beautiful, jazzy, bluesy album.
I wouldn’t have purchased these from iTunes if they were infected with DRM.
