Last FM- Your own radio station
Member Name: aethys
Advantages: free, personalised choices, option to skip and/or ban songs
Disadvantages: choices become repetitive sometime....
Last few days have been working my way through Last FM. Found it to be cool.
The scrobbler seems to remember the songs heard on your windows media player and try to match them on your recommended radio station. The scrobbler uses the the texts associated with the song like singer's name, genre, album name, etc to get their recommendations. It is specially good feature to have if one does not store tracks on hard drives.
What is good that there is option to skip and jump songs you would not like to hear at that moment with the option to completely ban the song to be recommended if you have a strong dislike for it.
My friends tell me that the scrobbler would start giving close choices after it is up and running for a longer time say 3 months. Hope it does.
Another good feature is the option to hear neighbourhood stations or different stations to get to know what they play.
Also with no adverts on Last., I find it preferable to the interruptions typical of a broadcast station like ClassicFM......aqnd others of the ilk...........and also now Spotify.
Also reviewed for Ciao UK under samae name and title.
Summary: All in all a good place to hear your favourite music/song
