To my own surprise I've lately found myself listening to a LOT of music on Spotify.

I opted for the premium subscription giving me higher resolution *cough* whatever *cough* streaming and it's really wonderful being able to listen to whole albums you just heard someone mention (here on gs for example) in decent quality.

Then if I like what I hear I order the CD, especially for albums where the sound intrigues me more than the music (even better if both is the case).

Previously I did the same kinda thing using iTunes buying the music there then buying the CD if I wanted the best possible quality but Spotify saves me quite a few bucks and the instant play is really really great. Also good to have in the studio if you have a client go "make it sound like xyz" ...

Seriously, check out spotify!!! You say iTunes is convenient?! Hah. Spotify is THE way to listen to any music in the world just by clicking on it. And best of all is that it's streaming the audio so you don't have to waste any space to store it! All your playlists and listening history easily accessible on any computer/cellphone! Perfect "genius" style radio function aswell!

Just remember to check that "High quality streaming" checkbox in Preferences!
Which I found... after a year or so...

I find new music via spotify and using shazam, then iTunes it. I too have become too lazy to go even to Target, let alone an independent music store for CD's. I've been entrapped by the future.
