Top Five Geek Picks in Amazon’s Virtual Discount Bin

Coldplay's X&Y album art

Through the end of May, Amazon has increased their $5 album collection to include 1,500 albums. Here are the top five geek picks out of that vast sea of tunes:

  1. TRON: Legacy Reconfigured soundtrack
    Perfect for background sounds while making your own TRON suit.
  2. X & Y, Coldplay
    I’ve always liked the cover art for this album, which represents the Baudot Code character set,
  3. Ghosts I-IV, Nine Inch Nails
    Awarded a spot on this list for being released under a Creative Commons NC-BY-SA license.
  4. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest soundtrack
    You need something to listen to while waiting for On Stranger Tides, right? The original Pirates Of The Caribbean soundtrack is available for $5 as well.
  5. Musique Vol 1, Daft Punk
    The duo that could inspire costumes like these definitely earns a spot on the list. Get harder, better, faster, and stronger with a little robot rock, you daft punk, you.
