Last.FM has introduced a free full-track music streaming service, designed to help music lovers identify new sounds they like. Last.FM boasts 20 million users worldwide. The launch of the new service is a unique proposition because no other service - including Napster - has ever legitimately offered such an extensive catalogue of music for free playback. The added benefit is that users can select what track (or tracks) they want to listen to.
