What.CD replacement
« on: Dec 05, 2016, 04:46 AM »
Hey guys,

Not sure if some of you used to be on What.CD, if that's the case, I'm sure you're aware of the tragedy of its closure.
I'm creating this thread so that we can discuss and follow up which sites will emerge to take its place !

To start the discussion : https://torrentfreak.com/what-cd-is-dead-but-the-torrent-hydra-lives-on-161202/
Seems like PassTheHeadphones might be next in line ?

I think i was on there at one time quite a few years ago. I believe i downloaded one album and never returned.

It's rare that i can't find what I'm looking for just by googling it. What were the advantages of what.cd, really?

Biggest music collection ever
Biggest music fan community ever
Best recommendation / similar artists graph database ever

It meant you could discover new unknown artists, and/or get any album you ever could have wanted, fast and reliably.

I've used the program soulseek for a while now and now get all my music through it. Can find pretty much anything. Not so much a community though
