pretty much entirely for this reason.
but it's not quite enough to make me switch to PCs. It would be really lovely if someone were to update ssx...
soulseek doesn't seem as reliable as it used to be.there seems to be less people using it perhaps?
I still like it though. It's good for leaks especially, since torrents and files uploaded to filesharing sites tend to get taken down mega quickly. And in terms of that kind of P2P interface, it's definitely still the best. I supplement it with torrents (mainly from The Pirate Bay - www.thepiratebay.org; best torrent client is from www.utorrent.com) and by Googling for uploads though (search for "album name mediafire/megaupload/rapidshare").
only 79p for any song you want, at high quality, with no proprietary restrictions
what.. you're not prepared to pay 79p for a song? You wouldn't pay 79p for that song you really like? Sickening
that you can't preview to your heart's content on Spotify, Last.fm, Myspace, or the artist's homepage.
And isn't available to subsequently purchase from your local record shop, amazon, amazon marketplace, itunes, hmv, 7digital, emusic, bleep, boomkat, picadilly, fopp...?
Is it an unreleased live recording, mix, mashup or something?
I think its the best thing on the net for discovering music.
What i do is i'll search for artists i like,i.e thee oh sees.Let it search,browse the users who arent queued up and check out their library,if they have alot of bands i like i try out a few bands/artists i dont know and sometimes they are great sometimes not so much.This is a great way of dicovering new music.
Also i save certain users in my userlist and go back and check them out again.I dont feel guilty downloading as i dont get alot of mainstream bands (get me)and if i like bands/artists ill buy albums and check them out if they come to town.This has happend with thee oh sees,the intelligence and vivan girls to mention a few.
By the way if theres any slskers on here my usernames "Grover elliot" if you fancy adding me.
