The Magnatune sloagan "we are not evil" shows that they have the same opinion of the big labels as I do. I can only hope that their business model is a viable one, and I urge everyone to not only visit their site, but also buy something. I want to see Magnatune succeed, much as I wanted to see Rudy play in the big game.
Some features of Magnatune:
- Good music. They don't just sign any artist.
- You can listen to the whole album for free.
- If you buy, you choose how much to pay, $5-$19.
- Download lossless wav or mp3 format.
- Share the music with up to 3 friends.
- Copy or burn the music for your own use as you wish.
- Optionally get a CD shipped to you (slight extra fee).
Finally, a music label that isn't evil.
Thanks Magnatune, I'll be doing some shopping with you real soon.
