Music Review: EZ Tracks - Free Music Downloads

Last week I snagged myself a Samsung Instinct before it released and have been enjoying my new found mp3 player, amongst other things. Yes, I am way behind the times, but in my defense I did used to own an Archos mp3 player back in 2000, one of the first out there (big as hell too). So anyway, now I’ve gotta find a better way to get some music than buying entire albums or going the bit torrent route. Then along came Ez-Tracks with a request for us to take a look at what they’re offering.

Okay, so they’re giving away music downloads and it’s completely legal according to all the info on their site. I was curious to see how they could possibly get away with affording that if they’re really paying all the royalties on each download as they indicate. I went along with it and clicked to download the top listed song on their “most popular” list, Jordin Sparks’ “No Air”. Ahh, here’s the catch. They want your info, all of it.

Before you can get to your songs you’ve got to enter your name, address, phone number, and the maiden name of your third grade teacher. Well, at least three of those four. Unfortunately for my music collection I wasn’t willing to agree to mobile marketing:

Nah, not for me. But if you don’t mind getting some text messages for new music, then you might want to check out Ez-Tracks.

    That site is a joke. It’s absolutely LITTERED with ads. You have to submit your full name, address, phone number, and date of birth during the sign-up process. After that, you are forced to view 3 full-screen advertisements with TINY “click here if not interested” links hidden in different spots for each ad. I doubt there is any legitimate music on this site. Just a carrot on a stick while they rake in the ad revenue.

    My 2cents: Use which is actually FREE (and legal) with a signup process so simple, it only requires you to choose a username and password. Absolutely no personal information is required. It’s a wonder sites like EZ-tracks even have traffic…but I guess there’s a sucker born every minute.
