(Free) Music For Masses

Comments Backlinks

AllofMp3 has just launched music for masses, a free download extension of their music catalog. All you need to do is register for free, select the tracks you want, download them and you can start listening to them. The only downsides to this are that you can't share the music files, an internet connection is required to listen to the music and only their music player can be used for listening. All of which can be countered with one development - software that can convert the music to other unrestricted formats, which will probably happen some time soon.

In the meantime, I think this is a great way to preview albums in relatively high quality (128 kbps) at home. Sometimes 30 second previews just aren't enough to judge the entire song. I definitely know of songs that I grew to like after listening to them fully.

This is something that record labels should have released a long time ago. In fact, they could release an improved system where users could share music and playlists that they like. The music files would still be locked to each user, but they could share playlists with other users. These playlists could then be played directly in the music player without accessing the music store. This creates an easy way for users to share their music, unlike in the current system. Of course, this is unlikely to happen any time soon.

Have fun listening to free music!
