MP3 Deal of the Year! Thanks for starting a separate thread for this, it would be a shame to miss it.

Only downloaded six of the tracks and not sure why. Tech glitch? Server-capacity issue?

Got this and had it saved to the cloud drive and only four of the songs show up. Seems like others are having the same poem as there are now multiple bad reviews complaining. I sent an email to their customer service. No reply yet but I am confident that they will get it straightened out.

Yeah. I bought the album -- twice. Both times, only two songs for me. Major glitch going on!

When I first tried it, I only got the first 4 songs too. Customer service got back to me pretty fast and fixed it, so now I am enjoying the whole thing.

They must be getting hammered with a deal like this.

Only three songs downloaded for me. Oh well, what do you expect for 99 cents.

Just kidding -- check your order history. Mine says "Currently Being Processed" which indicates to me that the purchase is held up by the copy to the cloud drive. I imagine after a few hours it'll sort itself out.

Be interesting to see if they publish any stats from this. Do they ever?

Each download should count as an album sale on the Billboard chart, based on what Rolling Stone tells me on their magazine's chart page. So this should be a huge week for her.

Anybody think this might have the biggest first week of all time? This is the closest thing to a blockbuster the music industry has had in years.

While I wait for this Cloud Player debacle to sort itself out, can we talk about the album cover?



Who the fuck thought this was a good idea? Looks like those things from Return To Oz but retarded. This looks like schlock you'd find at a garage sale and you buy just to show your friends how silly it is. This is the best you could do, Lady Gaga? Seriously?

Yeah, I thought the same thing about that cover.

If she really dug the motorcycle thing, at least make it back of the booklet or back cover. It's just awful.

Especially with the title. She was born as a motorcycle?

Still only a few songs in my cloud drive. I can wait but just don't tell me "we didn't expect this much traffic." An offer like this was bound to be huge.

As far as I can tell, there's been no official word from Amazon at all. You'd think they'd put up a quick note or something, just to slow down the influx of calls and emails.

Still about 99 cents more than I'd pay for it.

Amazon tweeted an hour ago:

We're currently experiencing very high volume. If you order today, you will get the full @ladygaga album for $.99. Thanks for your patience.
Epic fail on Amazon's part.

I was going to download it, but read all the negative comments about people having massive problems downloading it. So, unless it gets resolved, I'm just going to pick up the CD tomorrow.

I picked up the Deluxe Version from Best Buy today. I prefer physical media to downloads, so while this is a great deal, it's not one I'd want to take advantage of. Was going to order it from Amazon, but figured I might as well pick up a few Reward Points since I'm close to another Certificate.
