Thread Name: Spotify is a pile of shite
Subject: RE: Spotify is a pile of shite
buddhu, why do you say that? From a listener point of view, Spotify is excellent - it contains a large amount of music of all types. It's easy to use, and it's free if you don't mind putting up with the ads, or you can pay a modest amount for an uninterrupted service. What's the problem?
It's not very generous to artists - the amount it pays for a streamed track is a few 100ths of a cent, so I won't be ordering the Rolls just yet. But it does provide exposure, and if people like what they hear they can buy the track. Artists don't have to join up if they don't like what's on offer.
Where it is not very good is in providing support, if your answer is not in its list of FAQ, just like most other internet services.
