What a beauteous thing Last.fm
is. Essentially Last.fm
takes your preferred taste in music and artists, and then creates your very own radio stations based on those preferences. The music streams near-seamlessly, continuously and without interruption. This puts it a step ahead of sites such as Spotify, which interrupt your listening with adverts until you pay a fee. But Last.fm
is free! You heard us right, it’s absolutely free!...so...

's box, of the Greek myth, contained all the world’s evils. Pandora
.com, on the other hand, opens up a world of music pleasure. Far from chaotic, the great thing about Pandora
.com is its ability to learn. Yes, it learns what kind of music you like (with a little help from you clicking “like” or “dislike”) by identifying which styles of music, and its constituting parts, you most enjoy. Pandora

The best things in life are free, so the saying goes, and Spotify could be up there with “love” and “compassion”. Spotify does something that almost no other music download sites can claim: it lets you listen to full tracks of music completely free of charge. This is its key ‘selling’ point, and it’s quite an exciting one: new and old music at your fingertips and eardrums without it...

is everywhere. It’s hard to avoid seeing someone on their iPad, nodding their head maniacally to their favourite track or music video. There isn’t an absolute number of tracks apparent on iTunes
but let’s just say this: it’s a lot. These come at a very reasonable price and iTunes
even offer free songs, blog posts and other such trinkets. The system is easy to use and looks superb,...

has passion. Its site reflects the personal intimacy of its staff, colourful but professional, serious but playful, ultimately obsessed with music. The eMusic
editorial team provide recommendations and passionate reviews and interviews. eMusic
is a community, not just a database. It avoids broadcasting the usual pop songs, instead focusing on the music scenes outside of the popular centre. New Age, Spiritual, Folk, Blues, International... this is a site...

is a quality music site with great special offers. You can buy some of the highest quality sounds out there, frequently at just $5 per album. It’s easy to use, too, and allows you to make recommendations to friends via Facebook and Twitter at the click of a button. There’s a certain honesty to the site, too, which always informs you of the kbps of any track whilst...

Look in the middle of the road and you’ll find mp3mixx. Its number of tracks is fine, but not great. It’s relatively easy to use, but in no way breaking grounds with features or innovating music extras. What is good about mp3mixx
is the price of its tracks and the occasional high quality of the download. At $0.15 a song this is one of the cheaper sites out there...
