MP3 Panda... Anyone know about this?

So a buddy of mine recommended this site to me as a great way to get albums on iTunes! Only thing is that it looks kinda shady lol. Im all for cheap albums but anyone ever used this site before, or even better know other sites that offer ways to get whole albums for around a buck?

No site selling albums for a dollar is going to be legit, so might as well not beat around the bush and just steal the music you want. It's not the like the artist is going to see any money from a site like that anyway.

There used to be a lot of Russian sites, but shit's all illegal. Stay away if you don't wanna be locked up with a BBC in your ass.

Piracy is so 2007. Just get a Spotify subscription and call it a day.

Nothing legitimate offers that kind of stuff. Spotify is well worth the money, IMO.

Isnt Spotify something I need the internet for, like I can get the songs on my comp but it has to be over the net to play them? Also I cant put them on my ipod or burn them or something?

Yes, Spotify is a streaming service.

If you need the mp3s you're going to have to buy individual songs or full albums depending on your needs.

If you're using a computer or mobile device, you CAN make songs available offline so you don't need to be connected to the internet to play them. That's only if you pay $10/month for Premium, which includes other benefits (and is totally worth it). If you're just using a standard iPod, then you might be out of luck in that regard, but even iPod Touch supports the Spotify app... and I think you can still get a Premium free trial when you sign up.
