You had me at "accessible"... you lost me at "can't just download it for later."

Not to undermine the work of one of Metafilter's own, but rest assured, if it ends up playing on your computer there is almost certainly a way to download it for later.

Will sign up at home. Wondering if this means we can finally hear Time Fades Away without the scratches?

Comes a time when everybody's rockin' in a computer age. Tonight's the night you should start rockin' in the free world. After the gold rush (June 30), you'll cough up the bucks.

It is, and I can never help thinking of Cortex the Killer, the Loud Family's (RIP Scott Miller) take on it, whenever I see cortex's username.

So here I am at my laptop
A wad of cash in my pants
I download from a ten year old
torrent site full of seeds
There's still crime in the city
Even if Neil says it's free.

Huh. I thought is was going to be permanent.

Yes, but is it compatible with my PonoPlayer?

I just stopped by to make sure someone made a PonoPlayer joke. Carry on.

I really enjoy how the whole thing feels like the GUI front-end of a CD-ROM from 1995.

morspin It's not the same without the scratches!

I can see many, many hours of my life being spent rummaging around Sir Neil's cabinet.

Probably a nitpick, but one can't read the Terms and Conditions or the Privacy Policy without signing in/creating an account?

For What It's Worth, it's not too hard to snag the 320k MP3s from the site using the developer console manually, but the HQ streams are using websockets and thus are less trivial.

Don't want my mp3
Don't want my mp3

When you hear my song now
You only get five percent
You used to get it all
You used to get it all
