Technology has made media consumption fairly convenient. Music has benefited from the growth and listeners from all walks of life can hear what they want, when they want and where they want. These new music platforms have also become multifaceted. You can find new music, share music, create your own music; the list goes on. But with anything, there are many pros and cons. The end that is greater than the other will determine the amount of users on a particular website.
8tracks is a great website if you are looking for a genre playlist. If you search for an artist, you can find playlists that already have a predetermined list of songs. It is effective in helping you find a playlist. It offers you a selection of playlists that are titled by moods, phrases, etc. If you are looking for a playlist to set a tone, the unique playlist titles can help guide you to the right list. It is very user friendly; simply search an artist and a list of playlists pop up. The only main con is that you also can’t skip past songs. If you are impatient like me, and you are picky with music, this site might test your patience. I would recommend this site to friends, but to a more open-minded group.
