eMusic blows goats!

Well, I downloaded the latest version of Winamp the other day, and decided to try out the offer for 100 free MP3s from eMusic.com. What a waste of time. I should have seen it coming. I mean, why else would any self-respecting dotcom site be willing to give away 100 MP3s?

I was expecting to see a huge variety of music from some of the major artists like Coldplay, Eminem, Prodigy, etc, but really it's a whole load of flipside tracks that no other company was willing to buy. It can be broken into three main categories:

- startup bands who don't have (read: will never get) a record deal,
- flipside tracks you'd expect on compilation albums, and
- tracks from dead people.

You may be one of those who are interested in that sort of thing, but it's not my cup of tea.

I prefer coffee...
