Is it really THAT good?
What's it all about?
Do I really have to pay for it?

lots of streaming music, but it good cos of the playlist sharing/collaboration
not yet, beta can be had for free at the moment
think of a free itunes for streaming music (full albums) which you can't download with no limit to how many times you listen.
Think of an album you want to buy. Type it into Spotify and you can listen to it now as many times you want. Good, huh?
Full details should be in this thread. And no, you do not have to pay for it.
this is exactly what i've been waiting for
until they've got a very very very extensive library. i think i'd actually consider paying for it if they got a significant amount of labels (especially smaller ones) on board
a more extensive library would be a definate bonus.
otherwise it's pretty awesome.
is that it suddenly makes you feel a bit thick about music.
There's suddenly hours of stuff that you've playlisted and you want to listen to, and then you realise you have to call someone in ten minutes.
That band you liked the last album of, you can listen to the three albums they did before that! And then buy them all because you suddenly realise you need to.
its a problem with time haha. I agree though, theres too much stuff I want to listen to now
so no harm to the music industry here.
I'm going to be listening to this with amazon up in another window, purchasing vinyl. My finances will never be the same again.
Has anyone had a problem with trojans since installing it? I've just had to temporarily uninstall Spotify because some lovely malware creator decided what I really needed was something called Spyware Guard 09, and as Spotify is the only non-normal place I've been in the last 24 hours I had to get rid of it as part of the anti-malware procedure.
but it really doesn't have enough on it yet, so far i've mainly been using it to listen to old stuff that I havent bothered to rip/download
I think I've had 4 so far and I've been listening to it pretty much all day.
Whats funny is that if Last Fm is scrobbling spotify it scrobbles the ads as well as music
But its been mainly government adds for me.
