Amazon MP3 is actually turning out to be a decent place to purchase and download soundtracks for both console games and indie games, as opposed to buying the relatively expensive import albums; also quite an amount of J-Pop on there, too.

Console Game Soundtracks:

IA/VT (PSP Rhythm Game):
Part 1: https://www.amazon.com/Ia-01-Birth-Vari … 76EJHX2YQB
Part 2: https://www.amazon.com/Ia-02-Color-IA/d … 76EJHX2YQB

There are also a lot of Sonic the Hedgehog (mostly stuff from Sonic Adventure and afterward; won't type in all of them here, you can also search for them yourself, but I'll give a few examples; each disc is sold as an individual album):

Sonic Adventure 2: https://www.amazon.com/Sonic-Adventure- … 1169DVKEG3

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006): https://www.amazon.com/SONIC-HEDGEHOG-O … A625150011

Sonic Unleashed: https://www.amazon.com/UNLEASHED-ORIGIN … 1169DVKEG3

Sonic Colors: https://www.amazon.com/SONIC-COLORS-ORI … 1169DVKEG3




Indie Game Soundtracks:

Child of Light: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JY … _sim_340_4

Ori and the Blind Forest: https://www.amazon.com/Ori-Blind-Forest … SHZKMGJ548

Pid: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009T … ndtrnet-20

Late noticing this thread... I get the impression that most VGM publishers that release on iTunes nowadays release on Amazon MP3 as well (in the U.S. at least). And more and more of those are releasing on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music as well, though plenty of Japanese publishers like Square are still holding back.

If it were one or the other I'd buy from Amazon, mainly because I'm loathe to install iTunes, but generally I'm still reluctant to buy music digitally unless it's lossless a la Bandcamp.

Capcom has a decent amount of their stuff on amazon as well.

But yeah, I like Physical because I rarely ever see DLs with the correct credits listed in the tags. I like to know who wrote what.

I'd gladly buy digital if I knew I was getting properly tagged lossless files.

in general if its available from amazon, its available on google play which is generally a better choice since they encode their mp3s in straight 320CBR. amazon's mp3s appear to be encoded in vbr3; they cut off sharply at about 16khz across the board. or if you're particular about lossless, 7digital and qobuz are generally getting the major new releases in FLAC and starting to build up a decent back catalog of the classics.
