Well, it’s been a few days since Spotify landed in the US.

Let me check…is Pandora still there?  Yep.  Whew!

What about iTunes?  Hmm.  That’s weird.  The US music world at large seems unscathed.

While Spotify probably got an unprecedented amount of initial signups thanks to their ongoing, pre-launch PR dream/nightmare, the real question is, are they different enough, more savvy at marketing, or just plain luckier than all of the on-demand music services that America already has to offer?

Are they going to live up to the hype?

Spotify vs. the US Competition

Fall Out Boy is Ruining the FutureFirst off, no band whose first CD came out 7 years ago should have a Greatest Hits album.  You’re idiots.

Now that we got that off our chest, let’s get to the point.  Everyday you hear people say that nobody is making good music anymore.  The other day I was talking to Page Hamilton of Helmet (because my life is awesome) and he said that he listens primarily to classical and jazz because rock music these days sucks and he’s mostly grown tired of the good classic rock.  I’m paraphrasing.
