    Have you noticed the "Discover" albums in the iTunes Store? Most are 5 songs for $3.49, while the 15-song collections are $8.99.

    I listed a bunch of them I spotted in the next post, and there are more, perhaps dozens more.

    They aren't all from the same record label. They have similar naming conventions (Discover, More, Further, Beyond, Full Package) and similar album artwork. Does that mean Apple has put together these collections itself?

    Have they been in the iTunes Store long? Has Apple promoted them in any special way?

    Has anybody found music they like by looking through these "Discover" albums?

    In the NZ version we have "Album Spotlights" for $11.99 instead of $17.99. This week is Groove Armada.
