Downloading music (legally)

I have just signed up to broadband, and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a site where I can download current albums (as oposed to individual tracks). I'm after a website where I can buy the music legally, as I like country music (don't laugh) and although I can buy the current albums in CD form, from the US on the net, they take quiet a while to arrive.

Thanks

Not sure if it will have what you want but it certainly does MP3s click here
Flat fee...apparently legal.

That is one of the scam sites that SELLS BitTorrent (which is free). You are not going to find many, if any, legal sites by using it.

I think that the site you've linked to is possibly the worst of both worlds. It suggests that file sharing can be done legally (going on, as of course it would, to state that this excludes d/l and u/l copyright material) and then wants to charge a fee for telling you how to do this. There are legal sites such as Napster and iTunes. You pay, they u/l. But to my knowledge, file sharing per se (in relation to what andy625 seems to want to d/l) is illegal. Always be suspicious of flat rate deals.

So what do people recommend ITunes, Napster? Which is the best?? I'd like to download the files as wma, as I play them on a ipaq pda. Will this be possible if using ITunes as they are run by Apple?
