Amazon MP3 Store better than iTunes

Based on [John Gruber’s review](, I purchased some sweet Jimmy Smith DRM-free music from Amazon. What John missed in his review was the “feel” of the site. Amazon seems like an old-skool record store and iTunes feels like the red light district of music Amsterdam. It’s hard to put my finger on it, but the [iTunes storefront]( is full of smirky artist’s faces that say “check out how famous I am for being on iTunes”.

For the record, the albumn I bought was Jimmy Smith’s Home Cookin’ and it’s fantasitc. I’m ready for Amazon to sell TV shows and movies the same way.
