    "Archive.org has pretty much every song you can imagine for free--at least, as long as you want to get it "legally." It's pretty great for finding public domain/royalty free music, but if you want literally everything you're going to have to branch out a little more."

    "I was looking for something similar to itunes, but for android. I came across Soundcloud. I love it. It allows me to set up artist notifications, so I will know when a new track is added. It also has the best part of pandora, I love that it looks for other songs that are similar to the songs you have shown interest in before. they also have a follow feature, so you can follow groups, similar to facebook.

    "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."

    "It's a great concept, but most of the artists are obscure. I wish "Gospel" were a genre option since that's all I listen to. When I get around to making my live-action version of "The Missing Piece Meets the Big O," I know where to turn to get my background music. Filmmakers on a shoestring, rejoice!"

    "I've found all sorts of mp3s on this site and they seem to have everything very soon after songs are released. This site doesn't host any of the songs it finds, it's just a search engine for other sites which host them... so if you're looking for free (not-so-legal) mp3s, you may find some dead links. But as an indexing service, it's one of the best ones out there."

The format and display looks cheap any ugly, and navigation is incredibly confusing. I'd recommend this to no one. In fact, you'd be better off paying for your music!"
