Spotify UK image
Music brings people together and that is a key focus of Spotify, the big name in online music with a social focus. In fact it’s hard to log on to Facebook without seeing an update that “Mad Monkey is listening to Top Bananas on Spotify” (or something along those lines!), proving that it’s a system people all over the globe are using to listen...

iTunes UK image
Sitting in a library, cafe or even in the park, it’s hard not to see someone tapping away on iTunes. It is a massive brand from Apple, the good folks who brought us the Mac and the iPhone. And they take advantage of this fact to good effect: if you’re an Apple-phile then iTunes can offer you a truly comprehensive service, ranging from downloading...

7digital UK image
7Digital is a cool breeze on a hot day. It’s a simple site, not hindered by strange clauses or contract deals, not filled with umpteen peculiar features and unnecessary jargons, flashy applications and sign-up options. It’s an honest site, willing to open its heart to you even before you sign away any cash, letting you listen to samples of its music, preview new releases...

MP3 Fiesta UK image
MP3fiesta might not be the best known music downloads site out there, but it’s definitely a good contender as one with the most adventurous offers. On first glance it might look like a kid’s blog page but beneath its cartoony bright green exterior lies a hidden gem, primarily known as the “Platinum Lifetime Unlimited Membership”. It seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?...

Whatever you’re after, be it a karaoke singalong, an old classic from yester years, or an up and coming alternative group, eMusic is there to help you find it. The major thing that strikes you about eMusic is its staff. There’s an army of music aficionados at its helm, finding new...

Amazon UK MP3 Store image
Amazon is known around the globe as an online marketplace where you can buy almost anything. Books, DVDs, computer games, replicas of giant squid. You name it, Amazon probably has it! And now Amazon offer a no-frills MP3 download service at a competitive price. The most impressive feature of Amazon’s UK MP3 music store is its generosity. This isn’t a money grabbing site that...

Zune Marketplace UK image
Microsoft’s very own holiday home, Zune music, offers its customers a modern, stylish music software and download system. Just what we’d expect from Microsoft. Zune is centred around helping you to find the latest hits in music and video through its online store and well presented software. You can browse, preview or buy music, film and more. A knockout feature of Zune is its...

Tesco Entertainment image
“Every little helps” whirrs on the Tesco mantra, which hasn’t really materialised into anything tangible to their MP3 downloads. There are no real surprises with Tesco Entertainment’s MP3 downloads site. It’s easy to use, but – perhaps inevitably given their company’s range of goods and general size - uninspired. Let’s start on a high, though, as there are some features worth an extra mention....

Bleep.com image
Bleep.com is definitely one for the music connoisseurs with a few pounds to spend on high quality tracks. Its focus on genres outside of the mainstream is admirable and its collections may very well be exciting to avid fans or alternative music scenes. This stylish site holds some gems and they’ve certainly been polished. High quality downloads demand a premium price and, combined with...

May be good but how would you know?
User Review of eMusic UK by Trevb on 19 February 2021

Checked the site before signing up. No search facility that I could find. Tried the Filter but no options.
Gave up looking for the music I was searching for.

HMV Digital image
User Review of HMV Digital by Ll on 19 December 2016

I found the website very misleading as, after typing in hmv into Google I was presented with this page, I was led to believe that the CDs were physical copies for a christmas present, so put in my details and... (Read the full review)
