MP3.com has stuck to its roots in remaining the best tool for internet capable musicians. The company offers FREE worldwide internet exposure on a large scale, and also a great opportunity to network with musicians in your own town/city on a more local scale.
MP3.com is basically a massive multidimensional rack of pigeon holes. If you have a song / track / image it can be placed in its appropriate genre (Techno / Rock / Classical / Photo-Art / Speech) and easily accessed through your own web page set up by MP3.com themselves. To create this page you just upload your songs / images and tell MP3.com how you want the page to look. The artist retains control of their own webpage, and retains copyright of all their work.
MP3.com offers musicians the opportunity to distribute CDs throughout the world, it isn't just confined to the MP3 / Internet media. People visiting your site can buy real CDs, half of the sales going to the creator, and half to MP3.com. Statistics of CD sales, or even the number of visitors to your site, listeners of your music, viewers of your artwork, are sorted out and displayed on a simple statistics page you can access after logging in with your password.
MP3.com is a must if you are an artist or musician. I've tried to limit my review to the basic service the company provides for artists and musicians, but there is also a wealth of advice and information on the site, please read other reviews in this CIAO section to find out more.
