Spotify rocks (as they say)

It's a measure of significance when something on the internet makes the BBC News at Ten, and that happened last week with Spotify. I downloaded it and saw what all the fuss was about. I've used last.fm on and off for years. However you can't necessarily hear every track.

I signed up for some other music service the other week, but I haven't been back and I can't even remember what it was called.

Spotify gives quick access to loads of tracks, with a very slick user interface. I immediately began compiling a couple of playlists that I've had in my head for years, including reconstructing a mix tape from Uni days which I must have thrown out years ago. There are a few holes in the coverage, so I couldn't add All Together Now by the Farm to my happy morning songs playlist. I could listen to whole albums by ELO, Kate Bush and Queen so that provided a bit of nostalgia on Saturday. I just hope that they can manage to keep some sort of free service for casual users like me.

Is it better than last.fm? Do the ads get annoying?
