    I have friends who rave about this but they've never been able to explain why it's better than last.fm

    it's much better than last.fm. the interface is nicer and it's easier to search for compliations and the like.

    I've had this for a while.. It's a cool player.. Was listening to 1920s music the other night.. dance bands, Jass, bluegrass all sorts.. The Ads on the free app aren't too intrusive either.. The occasional scroll bar ad now and again..

    I like it..

    ooh. yeah, this is great isn't it? i'm always innately suspicious about anything the guardian raves on about, but i was wrong to be here - it's virtually indistinguishable from a media player. but with fucking loads more songs than whats on your own harddrive...

    OK. It's fucking brilliant. There has to be a catch here! How can it play all this music for nothing?

    don't you just click the link on the op, fill it out and away you go?

    it's far from flawless - they're under the impression that a bluegrass outfit called White House are an English power electronics outfit :D :D

    they're severely lacking in ragga jungle too. :(

    lots of Clarence Carter though.

    I can see this being quite useful - if I read a reference to a track I can check it out on spotify and then download it or whatever..

    Sure, but come on: this is fucking amazing for free. The way you can see the 'hits' of bands is superb introduction to new acts.

    and it has got the "raggamuffin" mix of Wee Rule :cool:

    Here's how it hopes to make money:
    Free gives you:
    Find and browse by artist, title, album, genre, year.
    Specify your own radio channel based on genre, year and artist.
    Create, share and collaborate on play lists and share links to music.

    (with short ads every 20-25 mins)

    They're not as intrusive as the shit you hear on commercial radio. Least not yet, anyway.
