is a free music downloader for Windows. The application works in a very simple manner, giving you an access to thousands of songs and albums that you can download to your PC at absolutely no cost. Besides being a downloader, the application also works as a music player with playlist support.
has an intuitive interface that consists of two main panels: the search pane and the player. Starting up the search is quite easy; just enter the name of the song or album you want to download, and the application will immediately show the results. With a single click, you can start downloading single songs or full albums, and you can simply drag and drop a desired song and listen to it before downloading. The search pane uses tabs, so it is possible to make multiple simultaneous searches. All the downloads can be found in the download manager window; here you can also find options to pause or resume downloads.
Besides the ability to download music, MediaDrug
also works as a powerful music player with features like the ability to play and create playlists, equalizer, randomizer, and the option to repeat tracks.
You can configure a few settings of the application from the Options dialog. For example, it is possible to control the player with shortcuts and also to define the number of active downloads.
All in all, and leaving legal issues aside, MediaDrug
does a superb job at finding and downloading good-quality music from the web. All the songs and albums I searched for were available for download and most of them with a 320kb bitrate. It is certainly an excellent option to obtain the songs and albums you love for free.

MediaDrug is a program that allows you to download entire MP3 albums by your favorite artists. If you want to create a playlist of your favorite tracks, you simply need to drag your favorite songs from the left (search) side to the right side of the player.
