Comparedownload.com – Great service, shame about the look

James Whatley: An apology for an accident of publication

Comparedownload.com is a new service that takes a Kelkoo-esque approach to music downloads, presenting you with price comparisons for downloads of a given track. It also includes related videos, reviews and gig tickets.

The site is aiming to become a “music information hub”: a content deal with YouTube guarantees plenty of video material and user reviews are aggregated from Amazon.co.uk. There’s also a partnership with streaming service We7 to provide content for a Comparedownload.com-branded music player.

It clearly has the potential to be a useful service – comparison sites are a proven model, so why not in music downloads?

However, the site is let down somewhat by the UI. I’m guessing they were aiming for “clean”, but it could use work. Increasing the number of merchants would be a wise move too.
