Should I switch to Spotify, /mu/? I would on a heartbeat but I listen to way too many auto playlists, a thing Spotify simply can't do. Another thing is that 1/3 of my library is soundtracks, which most you can't find at Spotify. Plus the desktop player is shit.
Spotify's system is way too convenient, you don't have to: download shit, organize files, download covers, make playlists to fit your shit in a miserable 16GB SD card, etc. It is also really nice that once you feed it with your likes, it recommends you really spot-on shit.
Should I move on to Spotify or should I stay with the usual file management?
Mostly because of the future. I wouldn't mind transfering my library to Spotify if that meant I can save time in the future when listening new stuff. But I don't know if that's even a good idea.
I do listen to some mainstream shit. I also listen to some underground stuff, but the only thing I've not been able to find on Spotify is Macintosh Plus.
Not OP, but, even though that might be so, there is still a shit load of songs (probably for the most part) in my library that are not on Spotify which is why I have yet to use it regularly.
Although I've heard it's definitely a very convenient service to use. What a shame...
I'd actually unironically rec Tidal and not Spotify.
The desktop and mobile apps are just way better and when they have roughly the same library that's what it all comes down to.
Tidal also has better playlists.
Really weird how we've had a Spotify-related thread without shitposting.
I didn't think it was even possible.
I only recently started using Spotify and I love it. It's super easy for me to listen to my album backlog and the sound quality is excellent. I usually end up downloading / buying albums I really like to add to my persona library.
The UI is shitty, but I guess it's a necessary sacrifice.
