    Many of you have likely already noticed this, but there can often be a huge difference between buying a whole album and downloading individual songs, and it can go either way. For example, hip hop artist Grits' 2002 album The Art of Translation sells for $9.99 for the whole album, and it has 17 tracks on it, which sell for 99 each if you buy them all individually-$7 saved by buying the whole album! OTOH, The Civil Wars' 4 song EP Poison and Wine sells for $4.99, but each song can be had for 99 so you save a buck by purchasing all the songs individually. It pays big time to take a second and do some light math when buying your music!
    HeyCori and cedarlog like this.

    Why would you buy music if you have a Zune sub? Thats kind of the whole point of there business model. You don't need to buy tracks individually. Just download or stream the whole recording. Its yours as long as you keep the sub going.

    I can't talk my wife into a subscription... Plus by purchasing the music outright I can put stuff she wants on her iDevices.

    Tell her you'll pay the $10 a month for unlimited music streaming and she can continue to buy her tracks individually. She'll become jealous pretty quick.
