It is on there Lafleur.
Unfortunately not, maybe due to my "non-UK" Spotify account if such thing is existing (?).
But the album Suite XVI is on Spotify, it's part of the "Giants And Gems" album compilation (2014), even the single Spectre of Love is there.

Been playing with this all day - it's incredible. It's a small download,then it becomes an online jukebox with literally millions of songs - most of the MiB catalogue is on it for starters.
You can sign up for free, and just have to listen to 1 advert every 10 songs - big deal?
Or 99p for 24 hours access, or £9.99 for a full months access.

Just remember it's streaming music - not downloaded, but with so much to listen to, who cares?
Was gonna comment 'where the fook have you been for the past 8 years' :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Then i noticed you posted it in 2009 lol

I've only recently paid for it. The free service is good but gets frustrating after a while. It's great for checking out bands and albums. It must stop a lot people from buying some albums too though. Especially on albums that you would have gambled your money on.

Been paying for Premium for years. Discovered so much through it.

I have the family version, 5 subsciptions for £14.99.
Like Jim I have discovered so much through it.
Just reading the latest Baz interview, with the ACDC , Neil Young albums he mentioned, you can listen to it immediately.
I would however say that I make a point of buying CDs by new bands if I like the music, as the renumeration Spotify gives is piss poor.
I do wonder if I am propping up the whole rotten sysem, which may discourage talent to go into music, if they feel like they can't earn a living from it?

I keep meaning to give this a go, I might have a look.

Surprised to hear people on here moaning because Stranglers albums aren't on - haven't you all got every different variant of every album they've released, without paying again to hear it? :wink:

It's great for making your own playlists too.

The "Discover Weekly" and "Release Radar" playlists are pretty cool as well. The algorithms they use aren't bad.
