strong opinion 

i really dislike spotify, and most of the reasons are clearly just grouchy personal preferences of mine. but i can't shake the feeling that it is also actually objectively bad. i think paying artists effectively nothing, destroying the concept of "i have a copy of this record" and encouraging everything to turn into an endless soup of background playlists has done more to devalue individual pieces of music as culturally important, meaningful artifacts than piracy ever did


strong opinion 

@jk because their free tier is so ubiquitous and because they have certain restrictions for it like not being able to choose individual songs it really encourages this background blur thing.
Otherwise it's like all other streaming platforms, Bad
