- with Spotify you decide, with Pandora, they decide. What music you should listen to that is.
There is a radio functionality in Spotify as well of course.Nov 17, 2012
- I'm a live music fan. I haven't look for quite a while, but I don't recall either Pandora or Spotify having much to offer me.Nov 17, 2012
- Don't forgot the pittance that Spotify pays in royalties to the artists that agree to put their work up.Nov 17, 2012
- I both paid services and as much as I loved Pandora, Spotify wins hands down.Nov 17, 2012
- I'd advise against Grooveshark because they pay zero licensing fees. It's pirated music that stays legal because of a loophole in the DMCA. Basically they have a week or two to comply with DMCA takedown requests, but the community is so big it fills in those gaps even faster. The fringe of legality. And your favorite musicians are being screwed out of royalties.Nov 17, 2012
- there are a host of live shows on Spotify that are released by the artists (phish, dead,etc.) but the functionality across platforms while supporting the artists @spotify has it going on. My guess, you're a supporter of Soundcloud, etree, sugarmegs, panicstream, among others and if not give them a go, they're legal and awesome. Love what Spotify is doing. Xymonic is a great mobile alternative (to Spotify, rdio, MOG, pandora) but not entirely sure it's legal (tons of albums, no ads).Nov 17, 2012
