Is allTunes the new iTunes?

You’ve got to hand it to the Russians, when it comes to music on the net, its bloody cheap! With the iTunes store not exactly available in Ireland until recently (at least not when I had started out in college), some of us went MP3 shopping in Russia through the likes of MP3Search and AllOfMP3 which allows downloads for 10c / 2c p/mb respectively.

Anyway, AllOfMP3 have now released a desktop client, allTunes (via Techcrunch), which allows users to login to AllOfMP3 via their desktop, browse the store, and download their albums at the same cost – a full album working out around $1.50 give or take. Personally I think its great. Digitial downloads shouldn’t be too expensive, otherwise you’d simply go out and buy the CD (including case, quality printing, store charge, markup, vat etc.). Its real jewel in the crown is the back catalog of out of print albums (I picked up Kerbdog’s 1994 release, out of print about 10 years) and its massive selection of international music.

Worth a shot I reckon…

    Have either one of you used the extensively? I have been using allofmp3 for a couple of years now. My problem is I am on a Mac and it doesn’t seem that they have a version for Mac yet – am I right?
