^ Lots of valid criticism of streaming, although: a bit on the paranoid side. Any random app can't just read your text messages unless you've given it permission to do so. The paid version of Spotify (and I imagine other services) eliminates the ads, so that's also a help. I agree about the loss of control of the music though. There's lots of stuff I like that just disappears from Spotify for months at a time. Stuff I'd listen to on regular rotation that is just suddenly inaccessible to me for no real reason. Drives me nuts.
