If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly looking to music to save you. No matter what brings me down or knocks me out, my favorite songs can lift me up like nothing else can. Especially nowadays.
But even if 2020 is done with all its evil tricks, it’s comforting to know that I always have a tried and true cure for whatever ails me: music.
And not only are there countless genres, there are also seemingly unlimited ways to listen to whatever healing hymns you adore. So many, in fact, that it can be quite overwhelming. The fine folks at Consumers Advocate perfectly sum up what I’m talking about:
“Jump forward to today, when we have reached a point of music streaming “oversaturation,” where the main problem seems to be how to sort through so much music and data. When you have millions of songs at your fingertips, what do you listen to?”
That’s why I was absolutely thrilled to stumble upon Consumers Advocate’s very helpful article on the topic. It’s entitled “Best Music Streaming Services Based on In-Depth Reviews,” and it’s an absolute godsend for anyone needing a bit more guidance as they peruse their many musical options.
They spent more than 200 hours researching online music services like Tidal, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, among others. The result is an extremely thorough analysis of all things streaming music, a comprehensive guide that covers different aspects of each platform, including 1) its audio quality, 2) the diversity of its music catalog, and 3) its freedom to personalize your listening style.
I highly recommend you check it out before searching for your favorite songs of rescue.
