Imx Fix in my experience

At the iTunes Music store (the only music service I have ever considered 'acceptable' in terms of technology and fair use) there are several records from New Order. If you are a techie gen-x'er like myself, you likely wore out a cassette or two containing the music from New Order. Imagine my nostalgic disappointment when the iTunes Store has only seven of the ten tracks from Technique.

Which brings up an important point. I want it ALL. Not one track (such as blue Monday) but the entire record. It's a body of work, and almost all of it was good (I recall not liking one track) and should be bought as a full grouping of music. That's what quality does, it makes you collect.

If I was a pop music, KISS listening, ultra low rise wearing, teeny bopper, I would very likely want to buy the one offs for 99 cents. Instead, I'm a 30 something, t-shirt wearing, dark blue 'back-to-school' jeans wearing father with a penchant for 80's music. When it comes to my records, I want it all, but I don't want to go down to Tower to get it.
