Great Music Cheap: MP3 Albums for $5 (and Less) from Amazon.com

Radiohead's "The Bends" is one of Amazon.com's $5 MP3 albums for November.

Amazon.com is offering its usual slate of 100 or so $5 MP3 albums this month, but I noticed that they also have a big selection of MP3 albums for prices ranging from $3.99 to 4.99.

Like the $5 album selection, this lower-price collection spans all genres and includes new releases as well as older albums. Unlike the $5 MP3 albums, there isn't any apparent period of time that the prices are good for, so you might want to snap these up in case they're only available for a short time.

Amazon.com $5 MP3 albumsfor November:
  • Funeral by Arcade Fire
  • Fantasies by Metric
  • Closer: The Best of Sarah McLachlan by Sarah McLachlan
  • Be My Thrill by The Weepies

  • and, as you'd expect for this time of year, a number of pop Christmas albums, including ones from Bob Dylan and Bette Midler
