20:56 - !J.O.O.E.! I find the tags on Bandcamp near useless, because of how bands will spam random non-related tags for exposure. The quality bothers me too, and how now a lot of artists give you limited plays. Still my discovery tool, or one of.
20:51 - !J.O.O.E.! Decent quality too.160 OGG Vorbis, which is something like 192 / 214 mp3 bitrate. I can't remember the last time I had a buffering issue in all honesty, and my connection isn't great. Newer clients might have issues though.
20:50 - Zaphod I'm mostly talking about the streaming aspect. I don't know if the 2011 version was good, but every version I've used was painful to use and the buffer has always been terrible compared to every other single streaming platform.
20:49 - Apothecary I've always been more about Bandcamp than any of those other sites. Not only is it a wonderful "try before buy" model, but the tag feature helps you find SOOOO much more good shit
20:48 - !J.O.O.E.! Never understood the issue some people had with older versions of Spotify (the one I'm using is from 2011 apparently). Quick, ergonomic, well organised, easy to use. Has 95% of the music I want to listen to that's not on my HDD
20:46 - Zaphod Spotify has always been shite in my experience.
20:45 - !J.O.O.E.! I don't know . It's a constant pain. The new Last.fm means I can no longer see gigs via a specifically selected location, which means it's now way harder to track local stuff. Last.fm is now useless to me.
