I know it is retro but when I used this six years ago it was out of this world for the amount of content it provided for music. I really liked it because I could find out non-mainstream artists more easily on there than Kazaa or WinMX. I used to use allmusic.com to look for new artists browsing sub-genres of rock and look at the similar artists section. Then I typed in the name into AudioGalaxy and tried them out.
I'm a regular reader of Powerplay magazine for non-mainstream rock music and it's difficult to sample some artists featured on there because they're hardly on any network. Would be nice if the magazine had one song from some of the best reviewed albums that feature in the edition.
What is the nearest replacement in your opinion? I am currently using Soulseek and it has come up with some decent finds but it appears my inexperience has contributed to seeing "Remote: Banned" as the status for some song requests.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
