Probably the only one who is 'legal' is Sparks who offer the majority of their catalogue in variable format including lossless.
Regarding Sparks, I do appreciate the fact that they seem to only rip their music library from legitimate cd's which guarantees a much higher quality then some of these other sources, not to mention it eliminates the possibility of fakes being uploaded. It also reduces the chance of things being mislabeled (although typos are inevitable from time to time, but you get what I'm saying
I suppose since Sparks appears to be using only legitimate cd's to get their catalog from, that would account for their higher prices (in comparison to some of the cheaper Russian/Ukrainian stores out there). They need plenty of cash so that they can keep buying albums to build up their library
