    Spotify vs Grooveshark opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Spotify is still a legitimate alternative to Grooveshark, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    It's a sad and weaker commercial imitation of Grooveshark. Tracks your IP-based location instead of asking you for it, which I always find intrusive. Then shows you pages on your tracked location's language, even when you have carefully selected another through settings. Dislike.

    Pandora does not allow constructed playlists. It's internet radio, not a playlist service.
