"If you like music, you'll love lala.com"4.5 starson by ba73
Pros: Price - 1.75 a CD, Size of Catalog - find anything
Cons: I can't keep up with all the music i get, browsing needs improvement
Summary: At face value, lala.com is a great site for trading CDs you have for music you want, all for $1.75 per CD. The trading is super simple, they do all the matching for you, no auctions or salepeople to deal with; all the shipping materials are provided and the quality of the CDs is guaranteed or your money back.
But once you join, you will discover many more great things about lala. Live shows, member radio stations, and WOXY lounge acts -- all available for FREE. You can browse people's collections, chat via blurbs/forums, an read member reviews. And, they are starting to offer deals on new CDs that take long to trade. the y offer so much now that they do need to redesign some of the browsing experience to find all this great stuff...but the founders claim they are working on it.
In the end, I found myself getting back into music, even more so than in college. The biggest issue i have now is that i have gotten 300+ CDs in the past year (a lot via trade, many i bought after learning about them on lala) that i constantly have a backlog of new music to listen. I need more personal time...
