Eighteen bucks for a download?

(1/2) > >>

drone on:
An artist in the "rock" category I greatly admire has a Bandcamp store now and is charging USD $18.00 for a single-album download.  If you want to order a CD it is $20 plus $10 shipping to the US.  $30 for one CD is quite steep, IMO. 

Some fans are grumbling over this, not just me. 

Even though as just a listener it's not up to me to decide how much an artwork is "worth," considering the wide range of available downloads averaging at the $10 price, do you think $18 is a bit excessive?  At this point I don't really want to pay that much for a "file" and also don't want to pay $30 for one CD.  BTW, the newest release (in fact the last few) are only available on the artist's Bandcamp site, not iTunes or other platforms. 

Any thoughts?   

phobos:
Where are they shipping it from?

Who is it?

drone on:
Ships from Australia.  Rather not say who it is, but they're pretty well known down under...

phobos:
Ah, had it been a UK artist then I could have seen about getting it for you and shipping it across, which may have worked out cheaper.
