With the explosion of mp3 players in recent years, it is very tempting to want to take the easy route and download music illegally.

It’s conveyed that downloading music illegally won’t really hurt anyone, but that isn’t the case.

Every time music from an upcoming album is downloaded before its initial release, it may give fans a reason not to spend money on the album itself.

The Download Squad offers 35 sites to download music for free without the fears of getting in trouble with the law.

Users are able to chime in with sites that seem useful that may not have been mentioned, so the site is updated on a regular basis.

The site’s top music source known as iLike boasts over 30 million users as well as recommendations for music.

iLike is also compatible with Myspace, Facebook, iPhone and iTunes.

In addition to offering free music, the site allows you to listen to music directly from the site while giving you a biography of the artist while their music plays. also automatically saves any music listened to on the site into a playlist for easier viewing.

The sites are not grouped in any particular order so users are able to judge for themselves which site is best for them.

The Download Squad has been received very well among Cabrini Students.

The feedback has been seen as very positive.

“I think it’s a good thing,” Kristie Bergin, junior social work and religious studies major, said.

“I would consider use is as long as it didn’t harm my computer,” Caitlin Gill, senior elementary education major, said.

Although downloading music may seem like a faceless and victimless crime to some, the leaking of songs before their release will end up decreasing sales for the artist.

It’s a good thing to know that there is an alternative that won’t lead to massive fines and jail time.
