Finally. As our European friends have been telling us for years, Spotify ($Free) is what the long-rumored iTunes subscription service was supposed to be. Boasting a catalog of 15 million songs, it lets you search for and listen to specific songs, artists, and entire albums (for up to 10 hours a month), after which you'll need to pony up $5 for the Premium service and unlimited computer-based listening or $10 for the Unlimited service, which gives you app access from your iPhone or Android device, the ability to download music for listening offline, enhanced sound quality, and much more. Sorry iTunes Match, but you're no match for this.
Thanks to our friends at Chevy, we've got 300 early access invites to Spotify. Get 'em while you can.
