    Generally how these work is just that they just look for the individual songs using a search engine. If you want the album, you'll have to find each song on your own.

    You can buy by the album with the 'Amazon MP3' app.

    No. Distributing copyrighted material is illegal (in some countries). Downloading music is not illegal.

    This is not 100% true. You can't just throw a blanket statement out there like that. The OP did not say specifically what kind of music or album they were wanting to download. There are plenty of CDs that are put out as promotions that the artists WANT you to listen to for free, to get you excited about their upcoming album. Say for example, the rap/hip-hop/R & B communities often put out mixtapes for this purpose. Every album on my computer right now is of this variety. Also, I don't think it would be illegal to download something along the lines of classical music like Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, etc though I'm too lazy to double check that part out, lol. I'm sure there are other examples, but I'm not getting paid to do research here. :p

    That being said, you'd probably want to go with a torrent program, like Vuze as mentioned in the above post. There are a few others, such as dTor, aBTC, and Swarm Torrent Client. I don't have experience with these much, so do some research and pick your poison. Hope this helps.

    No it's not. As previously stated, it's illegal to download copyrighted media without permission/payment, discussion of which is incidentally also against Forum Rules.

    I guess I did run a little too quickly on my jump to conclusions mat and had bad wording on my part. Just usually, when people ask this sort of question, its normally about copyrighted stuff.

    Google play store. Go to the music section. Buy individual songs or complete albums. How did you not know this ????

    The RIAA only has to get a subpoena to your ISP, and they've got your name, address, and everything. That's if you're illegally downloading copyright music.

    I can legally download full albums from Baidu, but only in China. OP depending on what country you're in, you might be able to buy full albums from Google, Amazon, even iTunes, there's no DRM on music.

    Vuze is bittorrent, which means you're uploading as well. And if you're caught distributing copyrighted material without permission, could be in serious trouble.
