All of the sites we review look great, but Soundike really stands out. It looks
great, but that doesn't detract from the ease-of-use of the site. If you are looking for a song, we are sure
it will be available on Soundike.com. Other good features of the site include the following:
The Soundike Home Page
When you register, make sure you check the confirmation email they send you as it will contain a link
that will allow you to confirm your email address - and by doing so, Soundike will give you a bonus of
30¢ in your account. This may not sound a great deal, but it will allow you to download any 2
songs you want so you can test their service.
If you have any reservations regarding the legality of the site, Soundike are so confident that they
are not doing anything illegal (as are we) that they state this on their site:
"Our music service is absolutely legal in all countries and all states".
There is more information on the legality of these websites on the FAQ page.
As each song is only $0.15, you could be forgiven for thinking that the quality of the music will not
be very good, but you will be pleased to know that this is not the case, with many of the songs on the
site being CD quality (320kbps).
If you want to download an entire album rather than just odd songs off of it, make sure you click the
"Buy full album now" link as you will receive a 20% discount when doing so.
Kind of know what the band or track is you want, but aren't 100% sure? Use the Soundike search facility
and it will suggest matches, enabling you to easily find the songs you are looking for.
Disappointingly, both their Facebook and Twitter accounts haven't been updated for a long time, so getting
in touch with them could be an issue should you ever need to, but we have never heard of any complaints
regarding their server so hopefully that shouldn't be an issue. Otherwise, we find it hard to criticize the
site in any way, apart from maybe being pedantic and saying their tracks could be a few cents cheaper to
be inline with some of the other sites we review.
