Your Music from BMG

Did anybody else get the invite from Your Music? The deal is that you maintain a CD queue/wish list on their website. And they'll ship you 1 CD a month from that list and bill you $5.99 for it including shipping. All CDs are $5.99. That sounds like a great deal to me! Of course they don't seem to have the albums of certain artists like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Rolling Stones etc. for some reason. It's pretty much the same database as BMG Music Service which I'm a member of. But I'm curious if anybody here has tried Your Music and been satisfied.

That depends.

i *think* all those artists are on EMI. you're only going to have access to artists/labels that are signed to BMG.

for that reason alone, i personally would pass on it.

go for it then, i guess.

i've found that music clubs generally stick with the tried and true musicians and don't take a chance on newer artists. they never have the bands i like or newer bands, who are usually on smaller labels.

That may be true! Or they take forever to add new CDs. HTDAAB is the only U2 album still not listed on Your Music or BMG. American Idiot is not listed either.


Timmy, they only ship within US and it's territories.

I usually buy records where possibly. But occasionally I buy CD's they are around the $20 price point give or take $5.

Major retailers seem to sell them fro $30... but I know where to look.

$5 is just

Well... you're talking about Australian dollars right? I'm not sure how much the equivalent for USD 5.99 is.

*goes to check*


edit: Okay, I checked. USD 5.99 = AUD 8.02

So if you pay AUD 20, you're paying like USD 15 which is very close to the listed price in most of the stores here. Although, if you really look.. certain albums go on sale for 9.99 every now and then. The best deals seem to be online though. I have taken full advantage of the 50% and 60% off sales on my BMG account.
