Sorry to repeat myself but have changed my mind after an evening of using it, this DOES deserve it's own thread ;D For anyone who didn't catch the chat about it in the other thread... Soptify is a streaming, legal free music service that lets you just listen to, well...quite a large library of music, although it does have a few gaps. You usually need an invite but as its new, this link takes you straight to the sign up page...I'm just trying it and it does seem fairly impressive at first go, especially for trying new things to see if you like them, thought I'd share the link anyway in case anybody is interested: www.spotify.com/en/get-started/
And, as Ryan so brilliantly suggested...here is a link to a Forum playlist, add interesting things at will, anyone can add things to it/listen to it, I've put a few of the reccomendations from the other thread in to get us started.
(Oh...and I've not put any PRR in, I'm kind of guessing we've already got that well embedded in our music collections! ;D)

Looks pretty awesome, but the link to the playlist took me to a page that said 'first click to confirm spotify' and then, having clicked this, it attempted to load the playlist on my spotify player thing, and couldn't ("playlist not found"...later "could not synchronise plalist...retrying")

Is that how spotify works? I was under the impression that they paid the record labels and then it was up to them to distribute the money accordingly, but even better if it means the artists are getting paid properly!
I suppose you might be right really, I think that's how last.fm does it as well. I assumed because Spotify compared itself to radio it worked the same way, but perhaps not. Still, it should go to the band as part of royalties. I don't think the label would get away with holding the money. Especially as the band seem to own the rights to the album.
