iTUNES FLEXES CLEVER CATALOG MANEUVER

After curating a section called "All-Time Essential Albums" and pricing them at a bargain rate of $7.99, iTunes has promptly created a nostalgic effect on their Top 10 albums, which now almost reads like a chart from the 1980s. 

Although no one is shaking Ed Sheeran from his #1 perch with Divide, currently Michael Jackson's Thriller sits at #2,  Prince's Purple Rain at #5 and The Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill at #7.  Amy Winehouse's classic Back To Black is at #8 and the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol 1—packed with 70's retro hits from the Jackson 5, David Bowie, 10cc and the Runaways to name a few— is at #6.

Catalog, baby. And at the right price, potentially irresistible to Millennials who were not born yet when most of these records were released.
