Unlike some commercial music portals, LaLa lets you listen to the entire track for free just once; if you like what you hear and want to hear it more, you have to buy it, but you have the choice of several formats – there’s a 10c (US) web song or you can pay more for an MP3 or full CD. You can also keep your library online and access it whenever you’re logged into the internets – no authorisations for computers/users required. Take me to Lala at once.
