The hardest part is playing the songs to see if you like them or not.
But once you find the graphic and click on it you can then decide to add
it to your playlist for later download.  I use Window-Eyes so my
following comments might not work for JFW users.  The original song
lists are in a table.  When scanning across the row you will hear the
artist's name, song title, a link to rate the song, and then another to
add it to your playlist.  The final cell is headed with a label to
listen but this where it breaks down; the graphic is nowhere to be found
while in table mode.  If I use the mouse keys and use read-previous-clip
to work back to the left across this row, you will find a graphic just
before the artist name.  Actually there two or three graphics at the
physical right of this song entry but for some reason, the clips are in
a strange order.  I think a live demonstration is the only way to
explain this clearly.  What I did to get consistent repeatable results
was to make note of the "X/Y" values of the graphic's location.  The
listen links will have about the same horrizontal X value on each row.
Just click it and if it doesn't play the song, it may bring up a voting
or rating template.  If that happens, just back up to the previous
location and try the graphic next to it.  Trial and error? yes but I got
it worked out for my purposes and I can survive on the PMN now.  I can't
say the same for purchasing songs via Itunes.  I still can't deal with
the Itunes music store consistently at all.  I've basically given up on
iTunes for now until Apple gets off the dime and rewrites iTunes with
half a decent User Interface!
