    I'm seeing entire albums posted of new releases by bands.
    In this case a month before it was released.
    Not fair to the band :(

    Like many sites, it's legitimate but people will abuse it. If the artist didn't post the album, report it and move on.

    Are you asking if SoundCloud itself is legit? If so, yes...anyone can upload music, so it's possible for early leaks to be posted there, but I'm pretty sure they use audio fingerprinting technology which gets those removed fairly quickly (I had a private track removed once because it was copyrighted, even though I kept it private and non-downloadable). Sometimes the artists themselves post music there before release too.
