I looked at their legal disclaimer and checked Google and, although I'm not a lawyer, I'd say no -- it references "international law and the laws of one's home country" and that you buy them to use for your use only. It does not need the DRM, which means you're not getting the licensed version, which would make it legal in the US.
In the US you can't buy an album for $1.50 legally - it's that simple.
I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this, but I don't think I am. It also sounds risky to be establishing a prepaid account if this really does originate from Russia.
Strictly my opinion, but I wouldn't use this service. The people who produce and market the music have the rights to profit from their efforts, and our US copyright laws guarantee that right.
I also looked at their legal disclaimer, and it looks like it's risky not because it's illegal or that it's theft (how can you "steal" something you're paying for?), but that personal payment info would be with people you don't know. Incidentally, the retail price of an album in the U.S is NOT necessarily always going to be the same as it is other countries. If that were the case, anyone who bought a CD or Region 2,3, etc. DVD when traveling overseas would have it seized by customs.
Also: DRM is dreadful and makes transferring mp3's a pain in the neck, so non-DRM is always preferable. Otherwise, you have to burn it to CD to get rid of the DRM, then transfer it to whatever device you want to. The fact that iTunes, Rhapsody, etc., now offer non-DRM downloads is evidence of DRM's declining popularity.
