Thumbs down

Napster isn't a very good choice now and I didn't even like it back then. The download clients d/c so much and there's no reconnect/redownload feature.

Yeah.. Napster is dead and buried - you can't find anything on there now that it has all been filtered off.

I personally use AudioGalaxy (when it isnt lagged down) and KaZaA..

I've tried many of these napster alternatives...I never cared for napster much, I'm an ftp kinda guy..I find ftps run by release groups and get high quality mp3s from ftp..much more convenient and faster..
anyway about the alternatives...I have yet to find one that doesnt fill my system with spyware crap...I dont like that stuff in my system. also, programs like this are generally people at home ripping who dont have the 1st clue as to how to properly rip an mp3..for example, find an mp3 ripped by ego at 160 to 224kbps variable and compare it to even the high quality rips from these programs, there is no comparison *usually*.

newsgroups are also a GREAT source for mp3z. Hundreds of albums are posted each day in all the various newsgroups, and they're usually ripped from people who know how to rip an album (however ,how hard is it to boot up Audiocatalyst, set the bitrate to 192, and click 'go'?)

audiocatalyst sucks..no matter how high the quality is set it doesnt compare to an mp3 ripped with Siren Jukebox or something thats not made for ease of use, but quality ripping..for newbies audiocatalyst kicks ass..but if ya want quality sound its garbage..
