iTunes Canada: $4 Off Ed Sheeran X Album Just $5.99
iTunes Canada is selling the Ed Sheeran X Album for just $5.99 on iTunes right now. This is a promotional price and it will go back up to $9.99 most likely.
I have to admit, I had never heard of this artist before this deal came up. I am a huge music-lover, but my current tastes are more towards symphonic metal and bands like Tool, Volbeat, Apocalyptica, and the like. However, I found many of the songs on this album pretty nice. I rather liked his slower songs like One, I'm a Mess, and Nina. A friend of mine actually sent me the music video for Thinking Out Loud, which is super sappy with a side of honey. It is a very sweet and a lovely song to dance to. It also appears to be the most popular song on the album, according to iTunes.
The X album includes the following songs:
- The Man
- Thinking Out Loud
- Afire Love
Each song would cost you $1.29 to purchase separately, so you can get the iTunes album for the value of around four songs. I like to purchase songs separately if I only like a few songs on an album. However, it is not worth purchasing these songs individually when the entire album is only $5.99.
It is hard to price compare digital music when iTunes has such a monopoly on the industry. However, you will not find this album cheaper anywhere else (well, unless you pirate it). Personally, while I keep my books and movies in physical copies, most my music is now digital - purchased off iTunes with iTunes cards that I purchased on sale. I think my last iTunes card was 20% off. Thus, if I bought this album it would be like spending 20% less on it. :-)
