Yep, those reviews are useless. Now if there were only a legal way to listen to songs before I bought them. Maybe if some companies would help out by paying money (or receiving money) to broadcast music on radio frequencies. They could encode the data by modulating the frequency of a carrier, and use a center frequency between 87.5 MHz and 108 MHz. Of course, that'd require a centralized agency to dole out that frequency to minimize interference, some people to do enforcement, maybe they'd have to sell advertising to pay their bills... nah, too much infrastructure.
