When Spotify launched in the United States., the artist radio feature that is available in Europe was absent. Even without that feature, Spotify is a great service, and well worth the premium subscription price of $10 a month.
Still, people being people, many complained and begged Spotify to enable some sort of radio feature.
Much to my happy surprise, when I fired up Spotify tonight, the Artist Radio feature was there. No announcement, no bells and whistles. It was just there.
This makes an already excellent service even better. Hopefully over time, Spotify will add more ways to fine tune your radio.
Here’s the bottom line. If you like music, even a little bit, there is no rationale basis for not signing up for Spotify as fast as you can. It’s damn near perfect already, and it just gets better and better.
