Haven't listened to it yet
so I can sync my iPod nano
even though it's FREE :'D
What a time to be alive!
GUYS, WE STILL GOT PAID THO OK, FREE MUSIC IS AN ABOMINATION!
BONO: Hey, record label person. I have an idea. Because I've made poverty history with my charity work and tax evasion, I'm going to sell the new album for a billion pounds per track
RECORD LABEL PERSON: The Edge, you distract him with the glove puppet and I'll stuff as many of the master tapes as I can down my kecks
post about the new powerdove record instead guys
Because MediaMonkey (and others) just doesn't have as good an interface (go on, tell me otherwise), but don't buy any music through itunes and listen to all my music through android devices or my windows laptop.
...a forced, free U2 album would be enough to make me delete it.
Way better than iTunes.
1. Playlist function works well
2. Organises music well
3. Burns CDs well (and lets you test mixes with crossfade playback)
4. It's free and imports art (without making you pay to do so)
I've never sync'd to my phone - prefer drag and drop (which is easy). though apparently you can do it with doubletwist (ass per ThirstyDog below) or by syncing itunes with google play.
With the Local files feature there's nothing else you need.
The slight annoying thing is that if you use Spotify on multiple computers then you need to have the local files on each PC (or keep them on a dropbox) but on a device it's fine.
I had to ask for it.
Rather than just settle for MOR bullshit. They're not even good at writing choruses anymore.
... just in case this ever happened. Victoly.
don't you know all the serious music fans use foobar
get a grip ffs
Anyway i've listened to some of this, Volcano, Raised by Wolves, Cedarwood Road and The Troubles are all pretty good.
It does hark back a bit to early 80's u2, its nice.
not that i disagree or anything but it's irritating when they stay completely silent about other less easy-target stuff http://joshhall.net/post/81578386910/fascism-and-colonialism-in-the-work-of-cut-hands-and
I have been spared this U2 record. Good decision I reckon.
Genuinely going to write a complaint about this unauthorised use if my iTunes account
first, I won't listen to it - I never liked them from day one
second, I only use iTunes as an interface for my iPod & CDs, so I will remain to have no idea how to find it.
What's the word for when you feel robbed, but in a good way?
I assumed it would be a free download if I wanted it, but I've seen pieces online that suggest it's automatically downloaded to your library??
i didnt have it this morning, have it now. i think i might need to actually download it to actually listen to it, but it's definitely in my library now
realised i've never actually bought anything from iTunes though (Apple ID is for stuff I buy through iOS apps), so maybe that's why?
How Music Works (p.261) mentions in passing that by downloading iTunes you're giving Apple permission to delete music from your devices if it feels like, so I suppose that also means they're allowed to add music too.
and as has been said, theyre just adding the metadata to people's libraries and bought accounts - you still have to actually choose to download it.
also, from what i've heard: quite ok really
only listened once, and aside from some cringeworthy lyrics, the music is half decent
...automatically, isn't that some form of hacking? Shame on Bono.
