I've been using Soulseek for about 10 years. If you're looking to download the new Justin Bieber album in about 3 minutes... stick with UTorrent.
HOWEVER - If you're looking to download a Stiff Little Fingers bootleg, or a Palace EP, or a Billie Holliday record (yes, "record" - ripped from vinyl), or some German Dubstep, or some Norwegian Black Metal or some Appalachian yodeling music, or... whatever other obscure type of situation you might happen to be into, then Soulseek is for you. If you're a musician, it's also a great way to share your recordings with others.
I'm sure you can find that Justin Bieber album, too.
If you really want to do that to yourself, I mean.
Seriously - Soulseek has a slight learning curve and the occasional technological quirk, but these only add to it's charm.
