    Depends where you can get the album from as it could limit your choice.

    Be careful with itunes: in the past I had well over 1000 itunes, but every now and then, itunes updates and the versions of some itunes don't carry on with the new upgrade or the license changes and I lose tunes. I've got about 60% of what I had before, luckily I've uploaded to a back up device but I do not think I should have to do this by default. No other player acts like this IME.

    Depends on the music you want. If it's pop stuff, you're pretty much stuck with amazon and iTunes for mp3s. For other genres, smaller artists often have albums for free or dirt cheap on bandcamp.

    For alternative steaming platforms, If you don't mind adverts and limited capability to pick songs, Spotify free version could work for you. I personally use YouTube with an adblocker for most music - there's loads uploaded there now perfectly legitimatly, usually under 'artist name' - topic.

    I have membership with mp3million. It has lasted me for some years now, from one lowest deposit. I think was $15 or $20. Although, I got mp3's from them occasionally.

    For older / popular stuff, I often find it cheaper to buy a used CD from ebay, poundland etc then rip it and stick it in the loft....
