15 million songs -- via Spotify (which, now that it is gaining a foothold in the U.S., is going to change the music business forever)

Which version did you get, my thought is I mostly listen to music from my phone (except when at home, then I listen to records).  So, I would need the Premium Version .. not sure that is worth $10 a month ... might try out the free version on the computer for a while though ... seems like a good concept.

Right now I'm using the free version.  I'm tempted to upgrade to the $10/mo Premium service, though, for the reasons you stated.  Even as is, I listen on my desktop at work or at home, and it's pretty cool.

How do the invitations work? Do you need someone to send them to you? Or do you just get one?

I just went to Spotify.com and requested an invitation.  Mine came within a few days, my wife's came within a few hours.  Conclusive proof she's cooler than me.  At least that's what she says.  Frankly, this "invitation" protocol is probably just a marketing ploy to give the illusion of exclusivity. 

Or, if you know a Spotify user who has invitation tokens they can send, you can ask them to invite you.  (I don't have any yet, I'm guessing they don't give them to free subscribers.) 

Or, you could just sign up for the paid service -- you don't need to be invited to do that.  They'll take your money right away!!

Thanks for the info, I will try to sign up for the free one (and tell them I am a girl to get it quicker :)  ) and give it a try.

UA is a nice effort by Megadeth, a mostly overlooked gem IMO. 

Speaking of Kings of Leon, drove down to Houston from Dallas to see them Saturday (and to visit some family that lives there) .. stupid singer left the stage the night before in Dallas becasue of "Heat Stroke" (It was really hot, but suspect he gave it some help) and the show in Houston was cancelled.

Still however like a fair amount of the songs :)

Megadeth - Rust in Peace

I may just turn out to love these guys as much as I do Maiden...
Is this your first Megadeth album James?


I picked up Anthrax-Volume 8-The Threat is Real!

I haven't got the chance to listen to it yet, but I loved Sound of White Noise, and I can't get enough of Stomp 442 so my hopes are high!
 
Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (Finally starting out my Maiden collection, after years of 'borrowing' off of my brother)
Megadeth - United Abominations (10/12 Studio albums now! 2 to go! :lol: )
Anthrax - State Of Euphora (Lucky find, seeing as my local HMV only sells Among The Living and The Anthrology)
Anthrax - The Devil You Know (New single from Worship Music!)
Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie (New RHCP single from I'm With You)
