Haha here In India 90% of albums costs around $2.

Sorry I forgot to mention that's without any discounts or offers.


Perhaps you are not aware of the differences in salaries between India and the US.

If only music piracy could be less prominent everywhere... we could all have $2 albums.
Stop pirating music!


Even if it were, we would still be paying the same prices, if not more.

This might be a good deal if the available music wasn't crap.

Haha, that's a good one! I think what your suggesting could be categorized as "specious reasoning"... :)

For example, what were record companies' excuse for charging $15 for a CD back in the 80s/90s before the advent of digital piracy? While I agree with you that pirating is wrong, it could entirely stop tomorrow and the price of music would stay the same, or worse, actually increase.

If an album is only worth $2 to you, I don't see how it's worth the time to even listen to.


?

I'm confused how you can say that about $2/album but not $12/album, if you're trying to equate money an album is worth with the length of the contents of the album.

I wonder if music piracy is a lot less prominent there.
