Have Spotify, love Spotify. I didn't create the beast, but as a music fan and a man on a budget, it works for me. First, I don't have indiscriminate sums of cash to pay for albums that I'll listen to a handful of times and never again. Second, for those albums I think I will love and will play over and over through the years, I like Spotify to be able to listen thru the album first and be sure I will like it. When I really come to love an album on Spotify, I almost always go ahead and buy the album. So I still support the artists that I really love, without wasting my precious few music-buying resources on records that I end up not really enjoying beyond a couple of listens.
