Comment on The Dark Side of Spotify
A big part of my switch from Spotify to Bandcamp was pay-what-you-want albums. It made it easy to build up a music library without any up-front monetary investment, and once I got familiar with curating a library of songs, I wanted all my music to be like that. I used Spotify for ~3 years, and a year and a half ago I just stopped using it altogether in favor of buying used CDs and Bandcamp. I'll occasionally use it for music recommendations, but they generally aren't very good.
