The MP3 deal of the day over at Amazon today is Pantera‘s Vulgar Display Of Power for only $2.99.
Here’s where I explain to you why you should part with three bucks: This album is fucking amazing. That’s right, I cursed for emphasis, and I’d do it again… fucking amazing. There’s not one bad song on the whole album, but here’s three songs that are worth the $2.99 alone: “Mouth For War,” “Walk,” and “This Love.” There, done.
