I own and have owned all ten albums for many, many years, so I can personally vouch that each one of them is amazing and worth owning. At 4 bucks each, I’d say just grab all of these selections right now. Three of my top 10 favorite bands are on this list [Rush, Van Halen, Ramones], while the other artists are ones I’ve been listening to since I was a kid.
Math time: Typically, MP3 songs sell for $.99 each, which means in order for the $3.99 sale to be worth it for the buyer, there has to be more than four songs on the album worth having. I can tell you with confidence that each of these albums meets this requirement and if you’d like some examples, just leave a comment for me here below in the Comments section, and I will gladly cite these examples.
