Cheap Music Bonanza: has 1,500 $5 MP3 Albums for May

The acclaimed album by Mumford & Sons is one of Amazon's 1,500 $5 MP3 albums for May.

This may be a serious strain on my music budget: is offering 1,500 MP3 albums for $5 for the month of May, way up from its usual selection of 100 titles. As usual, most titles are in the rock or pop genres, but the expanded number of number of titles means there's a much larger choice in genres like jazz (which has 500, Amazon says).

Here's just a hint of some of the titles available in May's 1,500 MP3 albums for $5 (some titles appear in multiple categories):
