The 11 Best Free Albums on the Internet

For the past few months, a UK-based company called...yes, believe it or not...the Web Sheriff has begun a crackdown of Music Blogger posts. You can read about this assualt in a recent LA Weekly article. So, here's my middle finger to them.

All the albums below are 100% free. Now there are tons of free albums on the web...but these album were purposely made for internet distribution and are all sanctioned by the artists themselves.

Here are The 11 Best Free Albums on the Internet (actually 13):

1. Nine Inch Nails - The Slip & Ghosts (disc 1)
2. Smashing Pumpkins - Machina 2: Friends & Enemies
3. Ben Lee - Against Me!'s New Wave
4. Girl Talk - Feed The Animals
* when asked for a $$ amount...just enter 0.00
5. Duff McKagan's Loaded - Dark Days
* technically this was made to be a physical release...but never was offiicially released.
6. R.E.M. - I.X.
7. Okkervil River - Golden Opportunities
8. Explosions in the Sky - The Rescue
9. Jay Bennett - Whatever Happened I Apologize
10. Atmosphere - Strictly Leakage
11. Stereogum's Tribute Album Series - Bjork's Post/R.E.M.'s Drive
* The Tribute to Radiohead's OK Computer is no longer avail for download but can be streamed here.

If this UK-based company is doing so, it is really a matter of great concern. We must condemn it.
Many thanks for sharing the 11 best free albums on the internet.
