My taste in music is varied and wide reaching.  I used to tune into BBC Radio 1 when  I woke up, and let it play throught the day… summer would come around and I would drive around the streets of the UK with the sounds playing loud…

MP3 came along, and with it, the ability to download music as and when you wanted it.  If you heard a new tune, it became easy to log on to your favorite (legitimate and legal) download site and be the proud owner of the sound of the moment.

Pandora changed the way I listened to music – and then locked me out again for not being a US resident, and as quickly as I had found a platform that played what I wanted to hear, I was left in the dark once again.  Although there were other platforms out there, none of them caught my attention until I was introduced to Deezer.

Deezer lets you listen to any song with just one click.  Their music library could certainly do with more content, but they are certainly working on it, and their UI is pretty damn good.  I am a fan of their site, and it’s my first port of call for all my music listening.

Last week, I was introduced to thesixtyone.com, and their selection of new music blows me away.  I found a number of albums that I quickly added to my wish list, and the site seems to be geared to new artists, trying to get their name out, but there is one drawback that keeps me from making this my go-to-place for music.  Their website is *not* as user friendly as other music listening platforms.  Perhaps I just need a little more time to get used to it.

In a perfect world, I’d love to see Deezer have the selection offered by thesixtyone.com, and I could happily throw my analogue radio out the window.
