Music Overload.

Okay, I really need to do a better job of controlling myself. You see, every once in a while BMG Music Club does a really good sale. It's $1.99 for each CD you buy after the first. Even after their rip-off shipping and handling ($2.50 each), it's under $5 each.

So, I bought a lot of CDs. And I mean a lot.

Here's the CDs that have arrived so far:

Meat Loaf
Alice Cooper
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Alan Parsons Project
Iron Butterfly
Days of the New (2)
Depeche Mode (2)
Kid Rock
Electric Light Orchestra
Radiohead (3)
Marvelous 3
Lisa Loeb
Velvet Underground
Bruce Dickinson (2)
Type O Negative (3)
Monty Python collection
Faith No More (3)
Joe Satriani
Bon Jovi
Phil Collins
Brian Setzer Orchestra (3)
King's X
Cinderella (2)
Jars of Clay

When you see a number following a band name, that means I got multiple albums from them, and that specifies how many.

As was pointed out to me by both of my roommates, I really do have rather eclectic tastes in music. ;-)

And what's really bad, is I've got a handful more still on the way.


Not really. . .

Not really, as long as you're careful and don't let yourself get stuck with a bunch of unwanted CDs.

For BMG, anyway, you get 7 free[1] CDs when you sigh up, then when you buy 1 CD at regular price ($16.98), you get 4 more free CDs.

So, you end up with 12 CDs for the price of one, plus S&G. All said and done, you end up with 12 CDs for about $50, if you stick to the minimum required. It's really a pretty decent deal, IMO. ;-)

[1] Shipping and Handling is where they get you, kind of. Every CD you order costs you $2.59 in Shipping and Handling.

Re: Not really. . .

Hey... what Alan Parson's Project album did you get?

Re: Not really. . .

Greatest Hits.

I think that's the only one they had.
Right on!

I love BMG's occasional 'Buy 1, get 2/3 free!' sales. I usually get about 9 CDs each time those come around.
