I've been an Emusic subscriber for 9 years now, and though the subscription model has changed significantly in that time, it''s still worthwhile. I've been introduced to countless new artists because of Emusic. Basically, you pay a certain amount each month, and get a certain dollar amount each month in downloads. A basic plan is about $12/month, and you get that amount in downloads (since the average album is about $6, you average 2 albums/month that way). There are better plans where they give you a bonus, and then it's cheaper. If you get an annual plan, it can be closer to $4/album with the bonus. It's geared towards album based pricing at this point, though you can still download individual tracks. It's not lossless, but unless you're an audiophile, you're not likely to notice. JDH, I checked out both titles you mentioned and they're listed (at least in the US) at $5.99/each. seems a lot for a single track or two tracks, but still a good deal. It's not perfect, but it's very useful when you're on a budget.
