Free & Almost Free eMusic Samplers

It’s easy to get stuck in a musical rut. The amount of new music that’s released, at this point, on a daily basis can feel overwhelming, and the deluge can cause you to run panicked to old favorites instead of looking for something new. That’s where we come in. We’ve assembled this page of samplers — all of them free — as a way to help you find your next favorite band without burning through your precious balance or making you spend hour after hour digging through the stacks. Just grab a bunch, load them on to your music player of choice, and let the discovery begin.

    Just when you're ready to quit the site because of constant technical glitches, raised prices and the stupid 10-minute album-only rule, eMusic does something like this: a ton of free music, all in one place. Well done. Thank you.

      Amen to that S T U P I D 10-minute album-only rule. That policy needs to be reexamined.

      What is the 10 minute album only rule? I never noticed it.

        Hear, hear! If this thing just isn't affecting me then great [for me], but but if there's something I should be able to do but can't for some dumb reason I haven't heard about, then that needs to be remedied.

      You can get the same sampler downloads plus many more for Free from Amazon as well. eMusic isn't doing anything special. Those damn technical glitches just cost me my remaining balance and I'm still pissed that I can't re-download my previous purchases, iTunes allows you to. This service used to be great, but I think I've had it...

        all you have to do is send them a message about technical glitches costing your balance and they'll replace it. i've had to do it a couple of timess, and they've been really great about it

    I really truly love eMusic and have recommended it to several friends. As if discounted favorite albums weren't enough for me, free music is just one more reason to love this site!! Thank you!!! Can't wait to discover some new favorites with these samplers!!!

    Raised prices? They are less than any other site! And sure there is a glitch here and there but emusic will pay you the money you lost. I would only compain about the lack of certain metal bands, but since i get such a discount on all the rest i don't really complain much. BTW This whole free music thing is great! Gotta love Emusic service!

    After reading the comments below I felt inspired to express my appreciation for Emusic to Emusic. My only complaint though I wish my balance would rollover though.

      So do I. It is only rollover if it less the .49 cents.
    • Avatar Imagebutterflieson September 13, 2012 at 12:59 pm said:
      I agree! I too wish for rollovers. some months I am busy and I don't download anything and I loose my balance - that said emusics prices are still better than itunes or amazon so I always check here first and I love the occasional freebies like this that allow me to try out new artists.

        I have lost my balance several times, including last month, when I am really busy and forget completely to downloads the songs. And to make it worse, the date keeps changing instead of a fixed date to renew. I really wish the balance would rollover fully, at least for a month or two.

          My story is just the same as yours (down to missing last month). I've been on the fence for quitting the site for months now.

      Complain to customer service, and you might be surprised at what happens! (You shouldn't freakin' have to ask, though!) Trust me on this.
    • Avatar Imagealphatrollon August 13, 2015 at 6:06 pm said:
      HUGE AGREE! I've lost more than one month's worth of credit just because I was busy doing other things for a while. DEAR EMUSIC: I'D REALLY LIKE YOU GUYS BETTER IF YOU DIDN'T STEAL MY MONEY WHEN I DON'T USE IT QUICKLY ENOUGH. And y'know, I'd guess pDaleC is probably right, it's generally easy to get CS to refund your credits if something goes wrong. but the whole process is so crazy cumbersome it's almost as if it wasn't there. And yes, you shouldn't have to ask.

      hear hear! i'm not fond of the balance not rolling over either, but i guess if you have a plan that's more than the basic $6.49 it will

      Call them and they will give you a one month roll over. Plus you can put your account on hold if you wish.
