MSN Music Giving Away Free Albums (almost) - Get the Full Taste of Mos Def's "The New Danger"

We all knew it was only a matter of time before Microsoft jumped onto the stage and started pimpin' tunes. More of the same you say? Yes and no. Pricing is the same as most others - .99 per song, most albums $9.90. What makes MSN's service stand out is that they allow you to listen to COMPLETE albums for free through their Listening Booth. It's not a download, it's a stream. But that's still cool in my book - and here's why - you get the whole meal, not just a 30 second taste of the sauce.

Free Listening - Mos Def's "The New Danger"
Mos Def is back with a hip-hop based jambalaya of blues, rock, funk and soul. Bits of N.E.R.D., Andre 3000, and Ben Harper. While some reviews are callin' it a bland mix, and I agree there's some spoons of white rice, you gotta' taste every piece to get it. And that's why I like the MSN Music service - you can listen to the whole album - all 18 freakin' songs - and taste the full flava'.
