Default Spotify

What is Spotify? - Spotify

An absolute golden find for me and it will be for anyone who's into music. The concept is similar to Last FM in a way, as it has a selection of internet radio stations. The two main selling points however are the sheer scale of full albums you can listen to (even a fair amount of obscure stuff, i'm listening to the Part Chimp album i've been looking for on it right now) which is a godsend when you just want to sample something before you download it, and the ability to make playlists and send then to other peeps on it. Also good for accomadating having my flatmates round who don't like my music! The only downside is the adverts that pop up every now and again but i can look past that.

Normally you'd have to pay unless you have an invite and luckily i have 10 right now so anyone who wants to check it out just PM me with an email address and i'll send one to you. Daaaamn good music program.

Cool bananas for this. I've always wanted to hear Richard Wright's solo stuff. Now I can

You can scrobble to last.fm too.

I just heard about Spotify about 10 minutes ago and have a working account already. God bless the internet! Trust me its very easy to find out how all on your own but I'll be happy to point people in the right direction via PM.

Hmm, that's odd, it's not available in my country yet... but this is America I'm not use to this shabby treatment and I'm a Canadian - Brit living in the US.

This is completely free to register now if you're in the UK, which is odd because when I signed up it asked me for an invite code and I had to find a link to bypass it. If you're in the UK i defnitely recommend getting on it. I'm lovng the hell out of this.

I think there's ways to get around the american block, proxy sites or something like that, i'm not too trained in the technical side to it all..

Had this for ages now, was going to hype it a bit, but it already has a thread, anyways you really have to get this if you're in Europe.
