    "I was looking for some music to put on a background track for a video project that I was working on. Open Music Archive had exactly what I was looking for and I didn't need to worry about any legal issues since all the songs were out of copy right. The category search was also a nice touch, as it was really detailed and I was able to find the exact music "feeling" I was looking for. The only issue I had was that there wasn't a whole lot of songs, I felt like maybe there might be other sites that may have a bigger selection, but this worked for what I needed."

    "I really appreciate this site I found in its relating to downloading music. Usually I have gotten music form Itunes, but there have been songs my independent artist that I want but are not available. I have found so many artist that I would not have know about before with Opne Music. Ive become a few fan of so many artist and the fake that there music is open for download, is just a winning point. "

    "It's nice to have a place like this that offers free english music. The quality is fantastic and there is so much to pick and choose from. I mostly use it for sampling for my music but there is a lot of great stuff on here for people to enjoy. The download speeds are pretty quick too and I haven't had any issues with the site acting funny. "

    "Open Music Archive is a great resource for music that now falls into the public domain arena where they are now out of copyright protection. You can search their archive by year or by genre and discover music you love. This site is also set up as a wiki where people can add information about music and artists as well as uploading additional music tracks. Open Music Archive has the potential to grow into a massive library of music available to anyone anytime!"

    "I was directing a play for a local elementary school and needed some music. It was hard to find songs that were out of copyright and allowed to be used by the school. Until I found Open Music Archive. All of the music I needed was found here and I was even able to directly download it. They even allow you to search by decade."
