Pros: ALS has been setting the bar high for years.
-all models are shaved and otherwise natural
-over 500,000 pics in zips
-resolution 2000x3000
-overall amount of content is overwhelming
-lost count of videos, but I'd guess over 3000
-most videos in 1080P
-mostly solo and g/g
-subjects also include b/g, peeing, dildos, speculums, fisting, anal insertions, anal fisting and lots of outdoors and BTS
-newly redesigned and searchable website with tags (90% of peeing content was tagged correctly, I looked at everything on their site and tagged the remaining 10%. You are welcome.)
-one, sometimes two updates daily
They are remastering lots of their older stuff. How cool is it to see those favorite pics of yours from years ago in more detail than ever before? This is one of the coolest things going on at ALS right now. I give them so much credit for staying true to their roots, and for putting in the real effort and investment that it takes to do this.
Cons: I honestly can't come up with any cons here.
Some past reviews have mentioned their introduction of b/g content as a con, while other have considered it a plus. I'm pretty neutral on it personally. To those who feel that ALS is straying from their roots with b/g content, I will say that is not true. ALS has done b/g content in their early days too, including one video with Mia that I'm thinking of, it was just rare back then.
The merger with Met Art was totally a good thing, all concerns regarding that have not played out, and they have kept everything that made them unique and great while totally modernizing their site.
You may notice some of the oldest archived sets appear thinned out. This is not new, they were thinned out on their old site too, actually those old archived sets were just samples of what was once available on CDGirlsOnline.com. As part of their renovation with Met Art, ALS had actually brought more pics back online than they had before.
Bottom Line: ALS - All Ladies Shaved. I obviously love this site, because I have given it my top score. If you look at all of the sites that I have scored close to 100%, they all have one thing in common - they are large, high quality networks that are run like the best of the small operations. This could not be more true of ALS - they go to every length possible to please their customers. Usually, the "Bottom Line" is the section where I go into objective detail about a site. With ALS, I will ask you to forgive me for being a bit subjective, because I would rather tell you the story of my own personal experience. ALS is a site that dates back to 1996, just about my earliest days ever seeing online porn. I didn't find them in the 1990's though, they first came to my attention in the early 2000's. I remember that ALS's pics were the first that I ever saw in 1200x800 resolution back around 2003, and I knew they had just raised the bar on everyone else. Those 1200x800 ALS pics still look amazing today. Back in those early days, I got what ALS pics I could from TGP's and the like because I was not in a position to get a full membership. Over the years, I lost many files, first due to an ill conceived idea to delete my collection, and later to a hard drive crash, but ALS's pics were among the ones that I remembered the most.
So I finally joined ALS a few months ago, hoping to rebuild my old collection and check out all of their new stuff too. I was impressed with the amount of content on ALS's site. They are one of those sites that you really can just get lost in, due to the overwhelming amount of pics and videos. ALS has a very distinctive style. It goes much beyond just having all of their models shaved. They love to do shoots at the beach and by the pool on bright, sunny days. Their models are young and slender with natural breasts and few if any tattoos. They always look like they're having a lot of fun too, and you can see lots of behind the scenes videos where the models are just having a good time with each other and with the staff. At the same time, with all of this lighthearted fun going on, ALS can really push the boundaries. ALS is the only site I can think of where the models seem to be having such a fun time while doing things as extreme as fisting, using speculums, and putting clamps (the ALS "dreamcatcher") on their pussies. Of course, there is lots of peeing too. So, there I was, downloading all of this great stuff from ALS, when I realized that something was missing.
I had some pics from the earliest days of ALS that I just couldn't find anymore. Actually, as I would later learn, the pics that I couldn't find were shot and watermarked by ALS, but they were never on alsscan.com or alsangels.com. They were only released on CD by CDGirlsOnline.com, a site that is long gone. CDGirlsOnlines.com was a site that sold CD's of pics via mail with exclusive ALS pics that couldn't be found on their websites. I was let down, thinking that I might miss out ALS's original, earliest work.
So, I contacted support, and they were incredibly helpful! Support passed my email along to several other employees, each of who were remarkably helpful, until it ended up with ALS's content manager. We compared notes about ALS's pics from it's earliest days, and we looked over the really old stuff that I had in my collection. Almost all of the stuff that couldn't be found anymore was from CDGirlsOnline.com. Despite the fact that they had closed CDGirlsOnline.com years ago, he went the extra mile to help me out. So far, he has found thousands of rare, old pics from CDGirlsOnline.com. The ones that he has found so far were released only for a limited time as bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes on the ALS sites and then removed. Out of incredible generosity, he has made these classic ALS pics from CDGirlsOnline.com available to me. Some people feel inclined to guard and keep secret the rare things that they come across. I would rather as many of you as possible enjoy ALS's pics, so that is why I am sharing this information with you, with ALS's permission. These old pics - bonuses, bloopers, and outtakes - are available to you as well, if you sign up as a member and ask politely. ALS has made no announcement that they will be remastering these pics, posting them on their sites, or making them available indefinitely, but they are available right now by special request. They are not up to current ALS quality standards, they range from 400x600 to 1200x800 in resolution, but they are the sharpest 400x600 pics I have ever seen. It's also really cool to have ALS pics with watermarks dating back to 1996, even if the resolution is low by today's standards. What's more, ALS tells me that they still have everything that they ever shot, some in RAW files, and the earliest content on analog color film, all saved in a storage locker somewhere. Isn't that the stuff of legends?

LPee23 (13) As a footnote to my review, please read this from ALS about their remastering process:

"The majority of our remastered sets were originally shot in digital format. We have always kept copies our raw / camera images untouched. So a typical set involves simply loading up the set in our camera program, reselecting and applying color correction to the raw images, then extracting them to a TIF format. In the early 2000s, sets were much smaller due in picture size and quantity due to the limited availability of broadband internet, so we are now able to include several, often hundreds of images from the set that were never before released, making the sets more "new" than old, and include them in the full size they were shot in by the camera. From there, we follow the same basic processing as any new set with today's quality standards. For instance, we all used to use the big tube CRT monitors when we color corrected images. Now that flatscreen and LCD monitors are more commonplace, those images tend to look a bit brighter and overexposed, so the remastered releases come out looking a bit more rich and vibrant color-wise.

There are some cases where we have even gone back to models who were shot in print. In these cases, we do have to digitally scan in the original print. We have a huge storage container filled with these albums. The main trick is using a very high DPI scanner to help blow up the images without sacrificing their quality. Once they are in a lossless TIF format, we again apply the same basic processing steps using Photoshop mostly to help balance the color, resize and sharpen the images, and try to reduce any graininess."

rearadmiral (320) Ordinarily I'd challenge someone who gave a score of 100 but I won't do that here for two reasons: 1) I know how great a site it is since I scored it at 97, and 2) you gave more than enough reasons to justify the perfect score. I agree with you that ALS Scan does EVERYTHING well. The porn is incredible, the site is logical, the downloads are easy and fast, the resolutions are better than usual in the industry and they provide all of this for a low price. I'm a big fan of their location shoots in the Caribbean. Those are hot and playful at the same time.

Have they ever shot more European public nudity stuff? The last time I was a member there were no new scenes like that. I'd love to see more of that since high quality public nudity is hard to find and this was some of the best I've ever seen.

Did you watch any of the b/g hardcore videos? If so, how are they? Are they artcore/glamcore or harder? Are there many b/g hardcore videos?

Finally, your account of the level of customer service that you got is inspiring. In a business where getting any response is unusual to get this level of service is amazing.

I really need to join this site again soon...

It's not exactly artcore or glamcore. Imagine the format that you're used to for g/g content on ALS, then make it b/g. No condoms, last time I checked!

By the way, I should amend my review in one way. Their latest photosets have increased in resolution to 5000x3000. They have always been the first to adopt the highest resolution formats, and they are making good on that tradition.

turboshaft (24) Great review, LPee23!

I'm not sure 100 would be appropriate for any site, but if you can fit your viewing habits into ALS' particular niche and how they capture it then why not go all the way? I just know that since giving it a score of 97 way back when that I've grown bored over their approach and really disappointed over their use of boy-girl content, no matter how limited.

Oh, how the mighty (and shaven) have fallen! :-(
