      Spotify vs TIDAL opinions
      Some users think Spotify is a great alternative to TIDAL, some don't.
      JohnFastman Spotify is a good replacement for Tidal if: 1) You aren't going to miss Tidal's Hi-Fi Music quality (which you could only stand to hear the difference using high end audio equipment); 2) Want better discovery and playlist sharing options; 3) Want to have a Linux-native client, rather than having to rely on a web browser if you use Linux.
