    I have an issue at the moment. I'm really interested in buying an album from a German band, but at the moment their album is only available on the German iTunes store (unless I want to pay upwards of $20 for the imported CD version).

    Is there any way to change iTunes stores and purchase the album? I tried it briefly but it rejected my card because it was an American VISA. Can you buy gift cards and use them in different stores?

    Anybody have suggestions?

    I'm trying to buy Oomph!'s new album, "Monster".

    I can't find it anywhere! The import CD on Amazon is like $30 which is ridiculous! And so far I've been unable to find a German MP3 site that I can get it from. Even amazon.de and others don't have the MP3 version as of yet.

    Unfortunately, changing stores isn't that easy. I tried it. It doesn't accept American credit card numbers on the German store. Plus you have to use a faux address, etc.

    (I've also noticed that albums are 9,99 euros... which is at least a few more dollars than for American albums on iTunes. I found that interesting...)
