Great idea, people that run it are awesome too. Plus they put in some really awesome albums.

Mansions is worth the money right here.

Not my cup of tea this time around, but still a really cool concept.

This I Used To Be A Sparrow album is a great discovery for me.

Considering the state of the music industry these days, I'm guessing these guys offer a pretty compelling price to the labels. Selling 2,000 in bulk at a cost of only $1.25 (that's a total guess) is a decent paycheck for the smaller labels, while still allowing Soundsupply to make their money back, plus a tiny amount.

$1.25 per album * 2,000 copies = $2,500 per album total going to labels

$1.25 * 10 albums in bundle = $12.50 (wholesale cost of bundle)

Retail Cost of bundle = $15.00

Profit per bundle = $2.50

This is an awesome idea. Think I might buy this, even though I have like half the albums.

People pay for digital music?

If I really like something I'll buy it in physical form. I imagine it's not hard to find all this music for free so that I can test it out.

While that makes sense, I meant more along the lines of the artists [not just the label/soundsupply] and how they would benefit from having their entire album sold for $1.25.

I would assume that a lot of these artists aren't really selling many albums these days, so anything is better than nothing.
