I’ve finally caved and am trying out yahoo music unlimited. I went for the month by month option of $7/month. Basically can listen to anything the have and can burn tracks for $.79 each (though the most I’ve seen any albums go for is $7.79).
I was inspired to try it from a blog by one of the developers. It was difficult to get running as it relies on IE and I generally have thatcrippled for testing things. Once I got that resolved I’ve been happy to see some old stuff (John Prine) as well as some new (M.I.A, Bloc Party). No Mekons or EDD so that’s kind of weird. Wonder how they select the albums….
We’ll see if I’m still happy with it next week.
