100 FREE Albums from Microsoft with Windows 8

I do not post too many Music Deals, but I am a sucker for FREE Music. For the last month or so, google play has been giving away music each week. I post these albums just to the Facebook page. BUT 100 FREE Albums from Microsoft is a GREAT Deal. These FREE Albums are not cheesy, they are all from very good artists. You will need Windows 8 or 8.1 on your computer or Windows 8 phone. I know that doesn’t work for everyone, but its whats needed for this deal. If you are TECH savvy, there is another option, but I would consider it a Advanced option. (see below for this option)

(This site is getting SLAMMED right now from everyone getting Free music, so be patient. 🙂 )
