Kingdom Heirs’ mp3 downloads

Last weekend, I noticed that the Kingdom Heirs had a new online store. I don’t know how “new” it is, but it is the top news item on their website. I hadn’t been to their website in a while, so it could be months old or a recent development.

What caught my attention is that all of their available music can be purchased as CDs or as mp3 downloads and the price of the mp3 downloads. The price for a single mp3 track is $1.99. I thought that was a little steep compared to Amazon, Wal-Mart, and I-Tunes. However, if you only want one song, it beats paying $15 for the entire CD. The fact that all of their music is available as downloads is a wonderful development that I hope more groups follow.

While I thought that $1.99 per mp3 was pricey, I did stumble across a bargain. Not only do they have their CDs available, their soundtracks can be downloaded for $1.99 a track. Compared to Daywind’s price for downloading soundtracks ($10), that is a steal.

  1. I’ve already downloaded a few of the soundtracks. They are definately a bargin at $1.99 apiece.

  2. Daywind’s $10 price for a single soundtrack is insane.

    If they’re going to charge that much, they should include the demo and all key variations for that one price. You can order the CD for the same price and you’ll have a physical copy with all the key variations and choice of BGVs or not. They could sell a lot more downloads if their pricing made some sort of rational sense.

    $1.99 is an excellent deal for a soundtrack. For a 10-song CD with all the soundtracks from a group’s release, you typically will pay $25. A la carte at $1.99 each, you’re still paying less even if you buy all 10 songs individually.
