The free thing is good because it is definitely better than selling albums today and being behind in sales. Now we can have websites debut albums and pay the costs of the recording process and in return get a million hits in a day. It really could be great. Plus, there is no decrease in quality. The album is great. There’s a great review in www.imposemagazine.com on the whole thing. It is good for the record industry and the band and esp. the fans.

The principle is OK but it would be better with more information. How do you know that you're paying the right price? For me it would the production costs + artist's rights. And for what? Compressed 128kbps MP3(yeeechh!) or good quality audio(wav, flac)? I would suggest a recommended price. It would also give a hint to know how much we are overpaying CDs for all the big company overhead?
How about the fans who would like the CD(s)complete material but don't even have a turntable? How to void paying the exhorbitant 40 quid?
