Music Monday #2

I’ve spent the better part of last week listening to classical crossover, ambient and piano music and a bit of instrumental rock. Here’s what was (and is) currently playing on repeat. The links are Apple Music, since that’s what I’m using.

Jef Martens – IX…like a calm and careless morning

Lights & Motion – The World I Remember

The Candlepark Stars - All the Little Things

Teodor Wolgers — Dialogues

I’ve found Apple Music to have the best sound quality vs. user experience vs. price ratio. Spotify sounds noticeably worse, even with all sound processing switched off, using the highest quality possible, turning off adaptive quality and downloading the files beforehand. All other platforms I’ve tried fall flat on their faces in one way or the other. If you can recommend a service at a reasonable price with great sound quality, selection, user experience and curation I’ve not tried yet, I’m interested.

So far I’ve tried Amazon Music, Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube Music.
