I don't listen to music at a high volume, if that makes any difference (2-3 levels above mute). Not loudly enough to prevent outside noise from interfering with my listening pleasure, but loud enough to help ignore the outside world.

By the way, new FRIDAY CHALLENGE is up.

I've been thinking about switching over—should I? It'd probably be a pain to get all my playlists moved over, though.

How is Apple Music different from Rdio? From what I can tell, it's basically the same cost and features between the two.

Don't know about Rdio (I have Spotify), but all three seem to be very similar. @Darkside said it changed the game, though.

I haven't used Rdio before, admittedly. But Apple music incorporates music that you choose into your iPod/iPhone library, so you don't need multiple apps. That, to me, is huge off the bat. 

 

Also, I have never encountered a better consistent quality in pre-made playlists, based on your own tastes. Apple Music's just seem a lot more focused and accessible than Spotify's do. I think they probably just have better music taste algorithms (which, btw, is currently a booming industry), which they have gleaned from direct access to millions and millions of people's music libraries. I am still trialing both apps before I choose between the two, but I have discovered more music of my taste from AM in 2 weeks, than I have with Spotify in 6.

 

Also, this is coming from someone who loves a chance to criticize Apple.

Awesome, thanks man!

Rdio's ability to help you discover new music is pretty weak. I read some music review sites but otherwise I basically have to click the related artists section for people I already listen to and then preview tracks and stuff.

They do have a recommendations section, but they haven't coded it to recognize if you have already favorited a recommendation so I'll end up seeing a lot of stuff I already have on my playlist.

Maybe I'll give Apple Music a try.

I also read Pitchfork and Anydecentmusic.com for new album recs.

Headphones don't cause hearing loss. Volume/SPL does.

In my head, Foo is saying the squares would have been better had they been cream...

This. Most of the people on those sites talk about the size of the portion rather than the quality of the food. I'd rather eat half of an expensive meal than a whole plate of crap. Also, there is this misconception that you need to feel full after a meal. Oops, I'm dangerously close to steering the convo back to talk of Lats and quads, which everyone seems to hate...satisfied.gif
