And then there was Soulseek

People, gather round. There is a better way to mercilessly steal milk money from the pockets of your favorite artists' children. It is called Soulseek and it is a David to KaZaA's Goliath.

Imagine a peer-to-peer program that isn't overrun with users looking for Beyonce tracks and Christina Ricci fakes and actually offers the music you're looking for. Imagine a simpler version of KaZaA, sans copious amounts of spyware, that offers simultaneous searches and fast downloads. Imagine a place where you can search for indie bands and find entire albums instead of glitch-filled singles. This place exists. Yes, it is called Soulseek.

I have seen the light. For months, I searched in vain for all the songs on Fever to Tell. After discovering Soulseek, I found the entire thing in mere minutes. KaZaa couldn't even cough up a quality copy of Room on Fire. With Soulseek, I found dozens of copies, all in a clean, crisp 192 bitrate format. White Stripes bootlegs, The Hives, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs...all your favorite pop-py, psuedo-garage bands are here, just waiting to be plucked.

Put simply, it is the finest peer-to-program ever.

Go forth, my brothers! There are musicians and record companies that are still making minute profits from their releases. This must be stopped at once!
