Spotify in review (battle of the streamers)

(Premium content) Premium content

Now that Spotify has had time to settle in and take a look around, is it changing the way that Australians listen to music?

A little while ago I extolled the virtues of music streaming services in an article titled The Streaming Revolution. That piece was written in anticipation of Spotify’s Australian launch and in it I contend that subscription music streaming is without question the only way forward for the music industry (a view that I maintain a whole two months later!) In theory, music streaming services allow the consumer to access music for next to nothing while the music creator still gets paid (it sounds like some kind of musical Utopia I admit).
