I want to move on from Apple Music. I like it, and the price is reasonable, but I cannot live with it constantly trying to drymount up my massive and carefully-curated music library. I cannot add anything from Apple Music to my music library without turning on iCloud Music Library which I am never doing again after the mess it made last time.

For example, I’ve been streaming the new Wand album “Laughing Matter” a lot lately, and anytime I want to listen to it, I have to go to “search,” type in “wand laughing,” click on the album, and choose a song. It would be a lot easier if they just sat in my music library, a non-option unless you are willing to give Apple the keys to the kingdom.

I thought I could live with this, but I can’t. If Apple Music were its own separate app from iTunes that would be one thing, but they are trying to force to merge and I am just not willing to do it again.

So what streaming service do you guys like? I've heard the audio quality on Spotify is lacking. Also I’m already a Plex lifetime subscriber, and they’ve been trying to get me into Tidal at double the cost of Apple Music but I just don’t know.

same, have a family account, so 14.99 a month for up to 4 accounts. Rarely something that I want to listen to that isn't there in some form or another. Sounds quality seems fine to me, but I'm no audiophile.

I, too, have Spotify Premium and quite enjoy it. Only the occasional album or artist that isn't on there that I have to find elsewhere. And they give you Hulu w/ Premium as well.

I went ahead and did Spotify premium (came with Hulu free which I didn't have before), and WOW. Apple Music really sucks.
