The price for this is now at $5.99: should it be changed or noted?

Also, for anyone interested, X5 Music Group is offering a free special bonus track from "Enemy Zero" through their Facebook page; however, you must like them first in order to download said track.

I changed the price.
2.99 was very cheap considering this is a 75+ minutes long album.

Was it originally 3 bucks? Isn't the point of "release" price to be the very first one? Field "current price" doesn't exist. I don't see anyone changing the price if stuff gets cheaper (yes it's rare, but it happens). Release price is unique. Good for consistency too.

Better to put the note about current price instead. Just sayin'.

That's the matter with digital releases.
Also, amazon is a master in that kind of changes. Haven't seen this happen with iTunes for example.

Yes, but has anyone bought it for 2.99? If that's the case, that would still be the release price.

Cheap or not, that was the original price.

I agree; prices should be kept as they're originally released at, with any other changes mentioned in the notes field. Regardless of format.

It was $2.99 as the DAILY SPECIAL, which happened to be the day it was released (this is not uncommon with X5 releases). I hardly think that qualifies as "original price".
The price it's at now is the 'real' price.

Oi, I hadn't noticed it was a daily special, or what have you... I've too much stuff on my head lately to easily overlook things, so if that was the case, eh, have at it.
