    "Its completely useless outside of the US. So its of little interest for the 7.000.000.000 people who live outside the US. I dont get why this is #1."

    "I used to love Spotify. I still like it but the ads have gotten a lot more intrusive over the past few years. You can't even avoid them on the desktop platform any more. I wouldn't recommend this unless you have a spare ten bucks a month to get the premium version."

    "If you need to stream some music I'm not sure if this is the best option but it should work. While it is mostly used for offline music it does seem to have an option for online now."

    "There are so many music streaming services out there but not many are any better than google play music. You can store your own music which is better than most other streaming companies. Plus its google so you figure you're getting the most of any music that is available."

    "Among music streaming services Amazon Music is not as good as others in my opinion. They lack some of the features that I look for as when I am using a music streaming service it is usually during a time that I want to be able to let my selected music play and continue doing my work. Amazon Music requires too much constant user interaction to keep the music playing. Other that that their library is very extensive and impressive."

    "Last.fm is one of the more interesting music streaming services out there. It will make recommendations based on what you like which lets you discover all sorts of new music. It is really good for listening to radio stations from across the county too."

    "I did not like the additional step of having to create an account. That is my only drawback with this application. The install itself was easy. The app is easy to use. There are many stations to choose from and i can save songs as i listen as well."

    "As most of the streaming services only offer online listening, it would be nice that Deezer offer offline listening and allow to import my own mp3 to create a unique sound track. And they have a feature called "flow" to play non-stop tunes. As I travel a lot, I would like to have something to keep me entertained on the trip. That's definitely a plus."

    "I like Bandcamp App because it allows you to hear bands that you might not hear anywhere else. Its a music streaming service for the little guys which I like. You can buy their stuff if you like it and download their songs."

    "If you haven't checked out Tital, you absolutely should. There is a ton of music on there you can't find anywhere else. Plus, its designed by Jay Z, need I say more? The audio quality is also higher than a lot of other music streaming services."

    "This site did not solve my problems with finding streaming music as well as I hoped it would have. One issue was that many tracks had quality issues - the default quality was low, and no other versions were available. Another was that it was not that easy to find new music on this site compared to other locations. I feel like other sites in this category perform better."

    "I was looking for a way to listen to my music without burning through data when I'm on the go and this may be it. I'm hesitant to commit to a pay subscription service, but the reviews I read were mostly positive. I'm willing to give it a shot but I'd be interested in a free trial first. I wish the site contained information about how to try the app out risk-free."

    "I was looking for a place to stream music which is different than Pandora or Spotify. I went to Bandcamp and was instantly surprised by the huge selection of artists available. That said I was dissapointed there wasn't an option available for subscription streaming so i don't have to purchase a song to be able to stream it. I would hoping for a bit more of an open platform for on demand streaming on Bandcamp is not that unfortunately."

    "I found the interface to be well thought out and intuitive but the streaming quality and performance were lacking. Often it took too long for streams to start and they had a habit of cutting out unexpectedly. The app shows promise but the bugs need to be worked out."

    "This site seems like it is fairly well designed and offers a variety of different features. It is not a site I have heard of before, so I don't know if it is as good as better known streaming services, but it might offer something I haven't seen before in those services as well."

    "Spotify really went down on their services and I started shopping around for a new music streaming service. I was sick of them bringing features, then getting rid of the features, then bringing them back, then taking them away. There also seemed to be updates every day that didn't really help any of the app. I came across Napster, now I am an "old timer" and remember the internet just starting to be a thing. I also remember Napster being a file sharing service and not a music streaming site, HOW THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED! Nostalgic thoughts flooded my mind, Metallica trying to shut it down. Made me wonder if Metallica was a part of their music catalog. Curiosity bite and I downloaded it and I have to say, it's a great service!"
