The internet is a very different place now than it was in 1991 when AllMusic first came online. The methods of keeping a free website in business have changed, involving more technologically advanced advertisements that can be seen as intrusive to the browsing experience. Additionally, the methods that ad technologies use to serve up relevant ads can slow down a website by placing dozens of calls to multiple services before finally loading the page. We recognize this and would like to offer an alternative.
At AllMusic, we pride ourselves on being the in-depth music information resource for audiophiles, researchers, DJs and other industry professionals for over two decades. Consider supporting AllMusic and improving your browsing experience by becoming a subscriber.
Become an AllMusic subscriber for a mere $12 USD and we’ll remove the ads from the site for you for an entire year. Not only will the site be nearly completely ad-free, but it will run faster and pages will load more quickly.
An Ad-Free Experience
As a subscriber, we'll remove ads to streamline your AllMusic experience. (Note: Lyrics, streaming radio and music videos are provided by third parties and will still contain ads due to our contracts with these providers.)
Increased Site Speed and Faster Page Loads
AllMusic works with dozens of ad networks to get the most relevant ads for you whenever possible. By removing these additional calls per page, the site loads faster and information is displayed more quickly.
Here is an example of how much faster the page loads when the ad calls are removed:
AllMusic has been offering in-depth information to industry professionals, research institutions and music fans for over 20 years. If you'd like to show your support, this is a good way to do it.
