I've been using this site for three years without a single problem. What is best about it is that it actually stores the MP3s you purchase for future re-download, so you can store them on multiple computers if needed. As another reviewer pointed out, there is a quality disparity between songs and the volumes aren't consistent. You can download the same song in varying qualities. The selection is pretty great and you can download whole albums or singles. Scamadviser has it listed as a... (read more)

I only know of this site because a charge for it showed up on my credit card... not exactly sure how, but I suspect it is somehow related to some recent unrelated transactions. At any rate, if you can't see past this scam, you are a fool. Have you never heard that if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is? Don't you realize that if this were actually legit, iTuens, AmazonMP3, and Google Music would all be out of business? If you're going to pirate music, don't pay someone to do it... (read more)

Good site. Some songs have different volume levels so a volume adjustment is sometimes necessary. I like the variety of audio books and music as well. I have also requested music that they obviously sourced and downloaded for my purchase, kudos. As far as price and piracy, I cant remember the last time Puff Diddy dropped me a dime to play his sounds on my public airwaves. Im sorry but after a reasonable period of time, like one year, its public domain if ever played on a public radio... (read more)

I've been using this website and their services for over two years now. I am completely satisfied with the music quality and couldn't be happier about the price. I've read reviews about other sites that offer discounted music and they are pretty poor. This one however has never failed me. I've even read some of the reviews people have left on this website about legalsounds, and I've never experienced any of their complaints either. The site has never been down, the downloading software has... (read more)

I've had no problems whatsoever. I've used my bankcard for my transactions every time. There is no scam. This is a legit site. Don't let those fear mongers scare you out of a good deal. The real thief is iTunes with their ridiculous prices for music that isn't really yours anyway. And the whole pirating term is an inaccurate description as it is. This isn't Blackbeard terrorizing the Caribbean. Music corporations would have you believe the artists are being robbed blind but the truth is... (read more)

I knew of these websites for some time but never thought to cross their paths. All I knew is these companies (often based in Russia) would simply sell on downloaded or leached files at a fraction of the cost. Q: WHY ARE THEY SO CHEAP? A: They aren't a legitimate distributor of music, they don't pay anything to the artists/record labels at all & just sell reproduced copies of songs they have detained. Q: IS IT LEGAL? A: Yes it is, In Russia, they do not have any licenced permission to... (read more)

I was able to use a credit card (gift card) with no problem. I have downloaded hundreds of songs without too much trouble - on occasion the downloader would mess up and I needed to uninstall and reinstall. Other than that, it has worked well.

Never had any problem with payments. They have most music I have ever searched for so now I have most of the albums I used to have on CD but lost.
At 9c per track you can buy as much as you like without worrying about wasting your money on the odd album you end up not listening to.
The software is easy to use and works seamlessly.

Bit rate is all over the place in my experience. The same album can have songs ranging from 128 to 256 and everywhere in between.

LegalSounds is OK. There are some good things about it, like being really cheap, having a lot of content, and good incentives. But, I've used LegalSounds for almost a year and mostly I've grown frustrated with the service. Some artists they have just about every song ever written and you can find all the music you want by them. Other artists they have maybe 1 obscure album or none at all. That wouldn't be so bad, but they have a feature that you are supposed to be able to request a song... (read more)

Too good to be true? Works on basis that you effectively pay to listen to each song once - like how radios pay for the music they play.

I have used Legal Sounds for the last 8 months, and I am very impressed. Songs are .09, allowing you to buy an entire album for less than an iTunes song. It is very easy to get around with the Legal Sounds Downloader. They have many artists that iTunes does not have, and they have albums that iTunes doesn't have for many artists. They have a bonus program where they give you a lot of free songs for putting in certain amounts of money, details of which are on their website. But for .09 a... (read more)
