I fucking hate how pirating music has become more of a bitch over the years.
In 2013 if I wanted an album, I literally just had to type in "[album name] torrent" and I'd get FLAC results on the first page.
Since around 2017, I've noticed music pirating has gotten faggier. Now you have to go on SLSK and dick around with some P2P faggots to find anything that isn't absolute normalfag shit. I hate private trackers and P2P networks where you actually have to talk to people.
I just want an artist's discog without some faggot being like "but what can you give me?".
Why has it gotten this way? What was wrong with dumping music onto public trackers? You can still find tons of music on clearnet public trackers, but now it's YouTube-quality shit. Music streaming has made everybody complacent with shit audio fidelity.
>inb4 some apologist goes 'OH BUT THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN" just because they've never personally experienced it
Look, I get if you only ever pirate semi-known bands like Death Grips or King Gizzard this might not be a big problem, but if you're like me and you like obscure local shit then you're shit outta luck.
