I'm after Refractory Obdurate, Wovenhand's latest CD. Ordering through their label's online store is completely janky and unreliable though, so I was wondering if any of you could recommend other online music stores that I could purchase it through instead? I'm looking for somewhere that has reasonable prices, is reputable, and that you've had nothing but good experiences with. Can you help?
Oh, and I'm looking to buy a physical copy of the album, not a download. I want to be able to hold the thing in my hands thanks. Ha ha.
The buying system on discogs has served me well. Also Amazon has been pretty stalwart too. It is tough to find solid copies but it beats the hell out of tolerating Apple's garbage or any other weird DRM festering nonsense.

I'd say Amazon is the best bet since I either buy from there or the band's/artist's official website. and I agree with you that it's a lot nicer to have the physical copy in your hands. I'm not the biggest fan of the whole download craze going around, unless I want just 1 song which doesn't happen too often. even if I'm buying the CD for 1 particular song I always end up liking the whole CD.
It keeps a record of how many errors in sales they have or complaints so it isn't that hard to find a seller who isn't a wipe. People run their businesses out of it sometimes so it is a total loss for them to be tricky.
An online music store is an online business which sells audio files over the Internet, usually sound recordings of music songs or classical pieces, in which the user pays on a per-song or subscription basis. It may be differentiated from music streaming services in that the online music store sells the purchaser the actual digital music file, while streaming services offer the patron partial or full listening without the actually owning the source file. However, online music stores generally offer partial streaming previews of songs, with some songs even available for full length listening. Online music stores typically show a picture of the album art or of the performer or band for each song. Some online music stores also sell recorded speech files, such as podcasts and video files of movies.
