I've been a big resister of Spotify in the past but after just getting my first new car without a CD player, decided I'd give the premium a try.  Basically, decided to dump Sirius that I never listen to anymore and use that money toward spotify instead.

And man, gotta say I'm loving it and I'm like a kid in a candy store.  It's awesome having so much music right at your fingertips and the ability to easily make any playlist you desire.  And I think one thing I'm really liking is that it's making it easier to discover new music.  I've been just playing H.E.A.T radio which is a playlist generated by spotify and it plays a lot of H.E.A.T and artists similar to them.  I've heard quite a few tunes already from bands I hadn't paid attention to that I dig and had never listened to before.

Yeah, I know this has been around and I'm probably about 5 years behind the times lol.  Better late than never I guess ;)

Granted, the quality might not be quite as good as CD's.  But it still sounds good enough to my ears after selecting high quality streams in the settings.

I do still prefer physical products and might still buy a couple CD's a year for albums I really have to have to support some artists.  But on the flip side, I rarely will sit down at home and pop a CD in to listen to as most of my listening happens on the go in my car, outside at home or at work.  So not sure how much sense it even makes to buy them to just have them sit on my shelf.

Just had to toss it out there.  If you've made any good spotify playlists you'd like to share, dump them in this thread.

I'm not the type of person to be able to pick the difference in sound quality so much.

It's either shit or good.

I have a tonne of CD's and it's time to dump them.
I NEVER plug in a CD.
In fact music on these is the least listened, I relaly only listen to stuff on my hard drive, which then goes in to a USB to use in my car.
or at times I use spotify as well.
I still like the making of a mix. Old school. Boomer, whatever.

Really need a CD burner, as CD's are so outdated now my latest computer didn't come with a player lol
So when I am able to (covid) I'll get to the shops and buy one and start ripping.

Also need a new keyboard, a chromecast, and new speakers for my work computer.
None of this I can get at the moment, because all retail shops have been closed for the last 6 weeks.
Not the types of things I like to buy online...

I have a love/hate relationship with it. 

It's made discovering new music so much easier. You may have noticed it's started creating Daily Mixes for you based on the artists you listen to. Now for you that might only be two or three, but you can get a total of six, and they're auto-generated but customised to your listening habits. And then there's the Discover Weekly playlist, which is not as good, for me anyway.

What pisses me off the most about Spotify are all the holes, and there are many, within the genre we love. New music? Yeah, that'll likely all be there. But the old stuff? There are so many bands with half of their catalogue missing, or songs on their albums being unplayable. It really annoys me, because I can't fully commit to one format. I still need to bring my DAP with me, or some CDs.

I don't know if you notice but i have been building a massive playlist and you can check out my Spotify playlist thread and perhaps you can follow and check out what I've been missing.

One playlist can accommodate up to 10k songs and so far from 4 playlists, I managed to add around 4-5K songs I guess and will keep adding one by one

I still keep around 1500+ CDs at home and there are still hundreds great albums that's not available so will slowly sell and downsize to maybe around 500 CDs. Intend to do that just for the sake of portability

Do you have a link to thread with your playlists?  I've also been building some playlists.

Also been unloading some CDs as it seems pointless to keep many i havent listened to in years.

    • Sad news.as before my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
    • Ah. Murdoch press. Always a good place to go for truth. 
    • 2021 can't get here fast enough, worse year ever. Looking forward to this album.
    • Update from Ronnie yesterday:   As promised a week ago here’s a little update on my current health situation. I’m not gonna go into details, but just state that unfortunately I’m still battling cancer!! After some pain issues and following a scan just before Easter this year I was told that the cancer had spread and I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, which in principle means incurable! Now there were two paths I could go by! I could sit down in a corner and feel pity for myself (which I guess I did for a while) or I could try to carry on living and do what I do best and I chose the latter. So with great back up from my family and true friends I decided to keep on writing music and lyrics plus the fact that I had a lot of ideas/songs that I wanted to get out of my system. So that’s what I’ve been doing on/off for the last couple of months. That eventually means that some new music is coming from me in the immediate future, but more details on that later. All that said, I must state that I feel good these days and have done for a while. I still get treatments, mainly immune therapy. I have some permanent pain issues and other sequelaes that I have to deal with! And mentally, I have my good days and my bad days, so be it ! But I feel that I’m in good hands with the doctors and staff who’s treating me, so everything considered I’m in good spirits! It is what it is and I can’t change that whatsoever, so I simply aim to get the best out of life. Finally another huuuuge thank to all of you out there who’s been rooting for me and cheering me up through this process ! Means a lot to me Love Ronnie
    • CAN NOT WAIT! The song titles sound awesome!!  
    • But we're only one year into this new decade, and it hasn't been a banner year, so that could be bad thing.  I'm just being an ass, but I hate sensationalism so I enjoy picking it apart.  ;}
    • Much to the delight of melodic rock fans around the globe, W.E.T. has announced the release of their fourth album, “Retransmission”. Core members Jeff Scott Soto, Erik Mårtensson, and Robert Såll deliver another astounding album that will surely be a contender for Melodic Rock Album of the Year 2021. W.E.T truly epitomizes what melodic rock has become in the new decade. The key element at the foundation of W.E.T has always been to create a modern melodic hard rock sound that will drive the genre into the future. Combining powerhouse rhythms and top notch production, the music is equally classic and contemporary. “Retransmission” is nothing else than an absolute milestone, which is well in keeping with the tradition established by the three amazing records that have preceded this one.Starting with a genre-defining self-titled debut, Robert Såll (the “W” from Work of Art), Erik Mårtensson (the “E” from Eclipse), and Jeff Scott Soto (the “T” from Talisman) accepted the daunting task to give that debut a follow-up, “Rise Up”. After that stellar follow-up, their third opus, “Earthrage”, cemented a legacy of music which will stand the test of time.Tracklisting:1.    Big Boys Don't Cry2.    The Moment Of Truth3.    The Call Of The Wild4.    Got To Be About Love5.    Beautiful Game6.    How Far To Babylon7.    Coming Home8.    What Are You Waiting For9.    You Better Believe It10.    How Do I Know11.    One Final KissLine-up:Jeff Scott Soto: Lead VocalsErik Martensson: All Rhythm Guitar, Some Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals & KeyboardsRobert Säll: Keys and guitarMagnus Henriksson: Lead GuitarAndreas Passmark: Bass GuitarRobban Bäck: Drums
