eMusic - an online music store that doesn't suck!

MP3 music downloads at eMusic: What a cool site! I just found it through a social network of mine and I'm somewhat impressed. It's a site where you pay a monthly subscription service and get a set number of music downloads. The best part: the downloads are simple plain MP3's - no DRM, no restrictions on what you can do with it. It's a breath of fresh air to find an online music store that trusts their customers and has a good faith policy against piracy. The songs are also much cheaper - if you get their biggest subscription plan you get the songs for less than a quarter each!

The only downside that I can see is that their catalog is not nearly as large as Napster, iTunes, or any of the other online music stores out there. I've never really used them much tho because I don't like the idea of paying for crippled music. As eMusic grows I'll be happier and happier, but for now they can take my $9.99 a month and I'll take a few albums and be happy with it! Go them!
