    "me and music go together like rabbit and kettles."

    Congrats on the launch BTW!

    Not a phrase - just tried to think of two things that don't go together at all :)

    Looks good ... I rarely buy mp3s, preferring physical media for the little I do go for, but I might if I can find some cheap... Layout goes a bit screwy in Opera, though - the sample amazon video for the one I searched appeared over the top of other things.

    The final polish on the site has worked wonders - really good effort! Well done I wish you much success with it.

    I take it is just for current chart stuff? I couldn't find anything for Blink 182 :(

    Well, a big thank you from me - I think it has turned in to a great and useful tool and I've already subscribed to receive weekly updates.

    Plus, should I admit I've already made use of it to treat myself to something after a really hard week?! Still very MSE though, as I know I got it the cheapest way I could...

    Well, the tunechecker is great- but here is a way to get EVEN cheaper tunes-
    Use a website from the USA. My personal fav is mp3 fiesta.com
    Fantastic site really all the music you could ever want(over 2 million tracks). Plus it's CHEAP.
    For example, you can get Madonna's new Celebration CD for only $0.50 which is about £0.30!!! That's the whole CD! I checked the cheapest on tunechecker is £9.99, so a massive saving of £9.69!:rotfl: Everything I've downloaded has beeen very good quality and you can listen to 30 sec previews of the songs as well.

    Yes you can use it from the UK and it features artists/albums from all over the world, not just the USA. PLUS there are great deals on- at the moment if you sign up you get 100% for FREE, so put $20 on your account and get $20 to spend on tracks/albums FREE! :T This only lasts till 7th Dec, but there are usually good deals on all the time.

    Spam?

    It might be cheap but is it a legal download site though? This sounds a bit like what All Of MP3.com were like before they got closed down. E.G. selling music but none of the money was actually going to the artists or record labels.
