RE: Napster Fiend
I'm an addict too. Search for "discography" on the Web; check out Rolling
Stone, or any other music magazine-- they all have databases for lots of
artists. As far as MP3 quality, look for higher sampling rates and
estimates of song times. There are lots of sudden cut-offs. I've even
gotten some MP3s that have been altered in pitch, and sound very bad, even
though their sampling rate is high. Not all 128-Kbps MP3s are good.
Usually the 160s are good. 192s are very good.
As far as music you've never heard, you gotta give it a try.
also music reviews at www.deja.com and www.amazon.com . Let me know how it
