Soulseek is a free ad-free spyware-free p2p program good for music. Soulseek comes with some features that no other p2p program even comes close to. Soulseek is very good for downloading full albums as users can share folders for their albums. Soulseek also has a neat easy to use interface which you can make it the way you want it. It shows all the chats that are available so you can go in and search member's files to see if they have the file you want. Soulseek does have a good selection of songs to choose from but as I can see Soulseek does not have multi-source downloading that other p2p networks have.

Soulseek has other neat features like the wishlist so if you cannot find a file you can add it to your wishlist and it will tell you when the file is available. Soulseek is a good p2p program to have around if you like to download full albums and music.
