I dunno, I got a notification that it had increased. So cancelled.
Rocknut, considering most chart CDs are £7.99, and i've just had my hours cut at work and buy alot of music per month, £10.50 is pretty steep. Especially for albums that are pretty niche. If I buy 3 Frontiers releases at £10.50, an Escape release (gone up to £10.99) and a couple of chart albums this month, that's just shy of £60. Given the state of this genre that's alot of money to spend on albums that i'll have largely forgotten about next month when i'll have spent £60 on that months releases.
Looking at the quality of artwork, packaging, etc it can't cost that much to manufacture. Frontiers releases always used to be £8.98, and they tend to release 3 - 4 albums a month (admittedly, there's quite often months when I'm not interested in anything they are releasing), but £8.98 to £10.50 in the space of a month is a big enough jump when you have rent, phone bills, internet, food, buses and taxi's to pay for, on a part-timers wage :-(
