Their ripping may be top notch, but their encoding sucks. They give me a 128Kbps AAC or MP3 and expect me to pay full retail for it? Bah! Everything about 14kHz or so is just mush. But, then again, the way all the CDs are premixed so far upward these days (for volume), everything up there is pretty bad, anyway. You need sine approximations to get any sort of clarity above 18kHz. No, if I really like the music, I'll try to buy it second-hand, or direct from the artist on CD. No iTunes for me.
Now, if they offered me full-quality wave or raw copies, or even lossless SHMs or FLACs, I'd probably jump all over it for my favorite songs. It's hard to find those on Kazaa, anyway.
