    eMusic isn't vastly cheaper than Amazon any longer. I've bought a dozen quality albums for $2.99 or less the last couple of months.

    I used to love eMusic as a great resource for non-major label stuff. Now it seems like their focus has completely changed. I quit a couple years ago and they got me to rejoin, but I quit after the free trial. What's the point of a pricing model with prices if they don't let the money roll over from month to month? Although there pricing isn't bad, I'll use Amazon for the convenience of a la carte purchasing without having to be forced into making purchases and half album purchases each month.

    How can people complain about eMusic's pricing when it's still vastly cheaper than Amazon and iTunes?

    Left because when I add up the "loose change" eMusic keeps, I can get a lot more music from Amazon.com

    Left because of the licencing crap with emusic not getting the rights for half the tracks in Australia :(

    Lately I've been using Grooveshark.com to preview albums. Works decently enough.

    So, uh, LaLa.com is now shutting down, so where shall we start previewing albums ?

    I was an aperiodic subscriber until they decided to stop accepting Australian money. They were always a little expensive and the low bitrate was annoying, but I have them to thank for Joanna Newsom and Shearwater and a bunch of others.

    I am in agreeance that using eMusic to discover new music is time draining. The 30 second previews are also not a very good indicator that you will enjoy the music. Luckily, the free tracks offered do introduce me to artists that I otherwise wouldn't have looked at. Also provides a better feel for the music they create.

    I've pretty much abandoned Emusic as a vector for finding new music. It's just too expensive to be used in that manner now. Last.fm is one good way. The main policy I hate though is their redownload policy. Especially when their downloader is so utterly broken and charges you a download when you can't even download it. You have to expend a second one to actually get it to download with their linux manager... unless you want to do an elaborate save the EMX file, then run emusic remote from the command line.

    Totally sucks what happened to eMusic June of 2009, but life goes on I guess. I canceled my subscription for about 3 months in protest. Came crawling back with an eMusic basic plan just so I could download a few hard to find artists. I've got better things to do than spend hours wading through piles of shit on p2p networks! So my new strategy is to use last.fm to discover new music, then buy the occasional album or two at eMusic when I find something I really like.

    This came from emusic-- "There is a temporary issue with Mac OS X and the latest version of Firefox, which is 3.5.2. We recommend that you use Safari if you are able to, or temporarily disable your download manager until this issue has been repaired."

    I've been having issues lately with downloading as well. I downloaded the newest version of Emusic downlaod manager. Before I was using emusic remote. The new program seems to be a big improvement, when paired with camino/safari.

    Is anybody having issues downloading tracks after upgrading their Firefox browser? I've just upgraded to 3.5.2 & whenever I try to download tracks off emusic Firefox quits completely? But it says I've downloaded the tracks :)

    I'll admit I'm still sticking around emusic--but I've pulled all my reviews and ratings in protest. It used to be about checking out what people used to say--but now they're not getting any help from me hawking their increasingly over-prised wares.

    Hi there.I wanted to register at emusic for 7 days trial but at second step of registration there're always errors: "registration did not complete, please try again.." etc.Do you know something about this from your own experience? Maybe it's about card?

    just downloaded Elvis, Lou Reed, Dylan, and Springsteen all on a per track basis. with my booster I am going to get a Elvis box set for a whopping 20 dollars. thats a total of 140 songs, more than my old plan for less money. Deals can be had. Now the real question is how many are out there? Once i fill in the holes of my collection there will be little reason for me to stay. the ride was fun while it lasted. Even when being very thrifty and using my downloads to the fullest it still just does not work out. at least in the long run. there are far too many albums that cost more than 12 credits. eMusic is micromanaging instead of making the site intuitive and prices linear. the site is just a giant web of prices. I've taken out the old calculator just to see what I am actually paying. well at least on large box sets.
