Granny Smiths are an anathema to me. :wink:

Also, why is it so sinful to express an opinion without being pressed to offer explanations why that opinion is held. Was that not one of the reasons that Nick started this forum ?
Yes, and it seems to me that Steve was expressing his opinion and experience and you were the one who was pushing back against that.

Having looked briefly, as long as it has sufficient songs and is of equal quality Amazon Prime is considerably cheaper and comes with loads of extras. No brainer.

I shan't be doing it though, not right now anyway.
I can do it right or I can do it now, but I can't do it right now.

Yeah the prices for Amazon Prime aren't bad at all, and given the potential, size of Amazon's catalogue, it could be a goer. Nice to see someone punching through the £9.99 price that seems to have become the norm for these types of services.

I signed up for Amazon Prime a couple of years ago for £70/year, but each time it comes up for renewal I've been given a half price offer. That's paid for itself in free postage on Amazon purchases, so everything else is a bonus. I'll leave you to decide whether free access to Clarkson, Hammond and May's new venture is a good thing or not. Meanwhile, time to explore Amazon Music . I wonder if I can access it via the Squeezebox....

Had a lovely week with Apple Music. The streaming sound quality via my AppleTV 4 is great and I've discovered some fantastic artists, whom I had never heard of before. All my listening this week has been to new (to me) music and the recommendation engine hasn't let me down yet with its suggestions. Much improved over the efforts of 12 months ago.
And because I put my own ripped files well out of the reach of iCloud, there has been zero trouble with any of those.

The moral here is, with Apple Music, if you are prepared to treat listening to streaming subscription services and listening to ripped local files as separate tasks, then you get no trouble. Combining local libraries and streaming into the same playlists and not getting messed up metadata, probably works perfectly with Spotify, Amazon Prime, Tidal et al but there you go. For the Mac user, we are in the walled garden and within those parameters, Apple Music has become a wonderfully seamless experience, particularly when combined with the AppleTV; but as ever YMMV and yes... it almost certainly will. :)

Well, I have tentatively moved a couple of my older CD compilation rips from behind my anti iCloud music library firewall and placed them in iTunes , where they got uploaded to my iCloud library.

No artwork has been altered. Have they finally realised what was going on and sorted the stupid algorithm that was turning people's carefully created libraries of THEIR music into a disaster area.

One can only hope Apple have seen sense.
