So, I'm a big Rdio user. It's my crack. It does, however, fail on music discovery. I typically find what I like elsewhere, and bring it into my Rdio collection. A big part of the failure of Rdio on discovery is that it bases its discovery (largely) on a recommendation engine. Songza's playlists are all human curated, and they have a pretty unparalleled balance of songs therein. Human curation wins, in my opinion.

All that said, when you surround a beautiful mound with tasteless waste --- think: their interface, ads model and weird feature priority --- then, even the beauty falls flat.

Songza, I don't want to quit you.

But I will.
