What if it cost a hundred bucks. What if it cost a thousand. One may want it, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth buying.

Discarding the philosophical ramblings being touched on here, I’d say…no. If it’s the same promo CD i’ve got (friend at a music store gave it to me), it’s only got two tracks. TPD, and a shorter version for radio stations that don’t like songs over 5 minutes. I wouldn’t pay the $15 for that…
