im not sure if someone posted this but i did look couldve over looked it, i did subscribe to apple music but only for this free three month trial, i notice that you can listen to full albums before purchase which is cool but, if i have previously purchased an album & actually pay for this subscription isnt that paying for the same thing twice or multiple times (every month) in a sense.

Yup. People that have reached the point where they know what they like, know what they don't, and built up a library to last the rest of their lives won't find as much value.

What are you expecting? Do you want Apple and the record labels to give you some kind of credit if you happen to listen to a song you have bought?

You are paying for the right to stream any of over 30 million songs and you can buy any you want to.

I mean the company as a whole, but i understand what your saying, i guess if u pay 10 a month its no need to actually buy the album unless you want to support that artist

Do you feel the same way about movies you may own and your monthly cable bill?
