Default Recent Album Purchases

If you're one of the few people in this world that still buys music, this thread is for you!
Did you get yourself a nice little record? 8-track cassette? CD? One of those new-age iTunes albums? Post your buys here, whatever they are. You can include other info if you want (your opinion on the album, whatever the price was, what it's on, etc.), but it's not mandatory.

As for myself, yesterday I got Meddle by Pink Floyd. One of those albums that's not as well-known, but it's actually one of their best. I also got Garage Inc. by Metallica. Normally I don't like covers of songs, but I think they really give each song a feeling of their own.

Both of these were purchased on CD's for around $10 each.

Kimberley 首張同名專輯 - Kimberley Chen
I just bought this album. Think of it as trying out the iTunes Store for the first time, but, boy, I love all the songs in this album in the previews. $7. Also, it's mostly Chinese, if you're into that (or not). I probably don't even know this artist until today.

驚嘆號 - Jay Chou
I've always loved Jay Chou's songs ever since I was a grade school student. Another $7 for high-quality listening, no?

I bought The Fear of Flight EP and Equestrian Revolution from Bandcamp recently, both by Aviators. I also donated 2$ to Renard's recent fundraising album for a friend.

My favorites out of the two albums are probably One Last Letter, The Fear of Flight, Loyalty, and Love Is In Bloom. Addicting stuff.

Yup, I freaking love his songs.

Also, I noticed that I vastly prefer buying albums thorough iTunes.

I found a couple of days ago a used copy of "My Dinosaur Life", by Motion City Soundtrack...
It's okay. Really just found 3 of the songs I really like from it. But I do enjoy it nonetheless.

Best. Purchase. Ever. Quite expensive, though!

I'm not entirely sure how dusbtep is viewed here on VR, but personally I'm a small fan of it. Although I do think most songs are pretty much the same(Also not really a fan of Skrillex), I am mainly a fan of this one group called Knife Party, which creates quality content in my opinion. And when I heard they were making another album, I knew I had to get it. This isn't really a recent purchase(I got the album this June), it is the most recent album purchase I've had, so I decided to post it here, because of how much I love all the songs. The album is called Rage Valley, and it's an EP album, so there's only 4 songs and it costed 4 bucks. If you don't like them, then haters gonna hate. :I

Rage Valley-



Sleaze(ft. Mistajam)-

Also, if you don't want me to post the youtube videos because of size issues, then I'll edit it, just tell me.

So I just became a Taylor Swift convert.

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
Speak Now (Deluxe Edition)

(Note: iTunes pricing can be really crazy. If you were to buy all the tracks in Speak Now individually, you'd run up around $25. Deluxe Edition covers everything and costs $7. The regular edition costs $10 (!) and has 8 less tracks (!!).)

Also preordered Carly Rae Jepsen's Kiss.
