I ordered two albums from Magnatune recently:
Both albums are freely available from Magnatune under the hope that one donates to the artist. I paid about $13 for each album in physical form, both of which arrived today.
Unfortunately, after seeing the Brad Sucks album on Amazon, I'm a little disappointed. I expected to get the CD in full retail form with cover art, CD artwork, maybe a lyric sheet, and thanks to Mom. Instead, I got a generic Magnatune CD and casethe only visual difference between the albums is the artist and album title.
It's okay. I've got the peace of mind knowing that half my money went right to the artists, and hopefully they'll have a beer on me. Rock on.
