Top Cheap Russian AllofMP3 Alternatives
Written by enigmax on July 06, 2007 The Russian government has closed down AllofMP3 and those who are trying to access its sister site, MP3Sparks, may be disappointed that the site also seems to have disappeared. But never fear, those Russians have plenty of alternatives. We take a look at some of them. There were roughly 6 million customers who, up until recently, were enjoying great value and service at AllofMP3 but following pressure from the United States over Russia’s World Trade Organization (WTO) membership, they are looking for alternatives. MP3Sparks.com seemed to be the answer but as of this morning, the site appears to have disappeared - it’s unknown if this is a temporary situation. In the meantime, we thought we could take a look at some other Russian music sites, offering cheap music to the masses. In no particular order; JustMusic Just Music carry around 160,000 albums from 44,000 different artists. Prices vary according to the amount of credit you apply to your account and range between $0.11 and $0.15 per track. Tracks are available at 192kbps and they take major credit cards and PayPal. LegalSounds LegalSounds.com prices are $0.09 per song, full album downloads average $1 each. Music carried includes the US Top 100 Albums/Singles, European Top 100 Albums and UK Top 50. Tracks are available between 192kbps and 320kbps and they take major credit cards. GoMusic GoMusic claim to carry over 35,000 tracks. Prices are $0.19 per track and around $2 per full album. Tracks are available in various bitrates and they take major credit cards. MP3 Skyline MP3 Skyline appears to be offering a huge amount of music. The site claims a staggering 2.2 million tracks available from over 128,000 artists. Prices are around the $0.35 mark for single tracks and encoded at 192kbps. Major credit cards and PayPal are accepted, along with other payment options. They also have a free download of the day, currently ‘Seeing Red’ by Killing Joke. MP3Fiesta MP3 Fiesta hold nearly 67,000 albums from nearly 17,000 artists. Prices are around the $0.10 mark for single tracks with full albums coming in at roughly $1.00. Tracks are available from 192kbps and they take major credit cards and PayPal MP3Sale MP3 Sale boasts a cataolgue of over 90,000 albums from 23,556 artists. Prices are $0.15 for a single track with full albums around the $1.50 mark. Tracks are encoded at 192kbps and the site takes all major credit cards, PayPal and a wide range of other payment options. iSound iSound currently offer nearly 60,000 albums from 14,000 artists. Prices start at $0.11 per track up to a maximum of $0.15, depending on the amount fo credit deposited in your account. Tracks are encoded at a minimum of 192kbps. Major credit cards and PayPal are accepted. MP3 Search MP3 Search carry in excess of 41,000 albums from 32,000 artists. Prices start at $0.19 per track but it isn’t immediately clear at what bitrate they are encoded. The site accepts major credit cards. Those wishing to get further details about these sites and many more with the same sort of business structure, should take a look at the comprehensive SongBoom.com. It has reviews of many sites, including the ones detailed above, plus a handy site comparison matrix.

3 Jul 06, 2007 at 16:41 by daveQuote dave It’s a bit strange a bittorrent site is advocating paying for pirated content. I thought TorrentFreak would be against that.

4 Jul 06, 2007 at 17:22 by torrent userQuote torrent user To be honest, I don’t see any fucking difference between torrents and this crap. Both of them profit well from the stealing.

I’m pro file-sharing of course, but i’m also pro-choice. I didn’t set out to endorse any of these services but so many people (including file-sharers I know personally) relied on AllofMP3 for convenience, I hoped to show that its death didn’t necessarily mean the end of this particular business model, despite the overwhelming political pressure. Some people will choose to spend a dollar and buy an album because they have little time, others will happily spend their time tracking things down because they don’t have a dollar. The decision to use any of these sites - or not - is freely with the individual.

8 Jul 06, 2007 at 21:54 by X-PilotQuote X-Pilot Hi all! I am user from Russia (so, sorry for my English ) and i want to say following: All of these sites must be member of FAIR (http://www.fairlaw.ru/index_eng.php) otherwise 100% that they are illegal. If someone has claims, he will discuss about it with FAIR [or ROMS]. So, that these sites have: 1) JustMusic - N/A (link opens with a blank page. May be they are filtering users from Russia) 2) LegalSounds - On site there is a note about E-Now and # of license from ROMS (http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.roms.ru%2F&langpair=ru%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools) they have only russian version of site (soo, link to how it looks on Google Translate) 3)GoMusic - licensed by FAIR 4)MP3 Skyline - N/A, but they are really looks like http://www.recordings.ru! Recording.ru has a license, possibly from ROMS (i don’t remember) 5)MP3Fiesta - ROMS 6)MP3Sale - FAIR 7)iSound - N/A (Access denied for IP: 91.122.x.x) 8)MP3 Search - FAIR. Engine looks like GoMusic, but MP3 Search has bigger music database and FAIR license numbers are different. Thank you, with best regerds, X-Pilot, St.Petersburg, Russia.

9 Jul 07, 2007 at 00:14 by songboomQuote songboom I agree with enigmax. AllOfMP3 offered a service that is hard to replace - and some people will search for such a replacement, and others will turn to file sharing methods. Others will also turn to the uber-expensive alternatives (iTunes and the like) to get what they want. It really depends on what people want, and how they feel about the service they are paying for.
