Would love to hear your thoughts after you've revived Google Music. Sound quality, functionality, etc., compared to the three you included.
Also, Google Music seems to have been incorporating Songza in stages. Recently I was given a list of artists to like/not like. I selected "more" until I had "voted" on over one hundred. At first nothing changed on my "Feeling Lucky" tab. After about a week I noticed a change. Now I seem to have several "feeling lucky" tabs depending on genre. Any thoughts by anyone trying this?
I have mixed feelings about the earlier initial Songza integration which offered (and it's still there) several sub-menus based on time of day, mood, etc. It seems impressive, but I have a hard time getting what I'm looking for. Anyone?
The few commenters RE Google Music surprised me. Anyone else using it? Sound quality thoughts? etc? Gotta say, I'm one of those who glommed onto the "lifetime" $8/mo offer, thinking it might become the ultimate player and I'd be in "on the ground floor." Pretty satisfied in general. Although, to me there seems to be considerable variation in sound quality from track to track...I'd guess depending on how the file was incorporated into the system.
For my use, as a DIY musician (he he...because no real musician would/could play with me...that would be DIWO I guess), it's helpful to be able to quickly listen to multiple versions of (mostly older) songs as I try to learn the song. Don't know if this is as easy on the other services or not.
