There's one thing that Spotify is a bit weak with that I thought Apple could crush them, and that's music discovery / suggestions. I start out by picking a genre. I love Metal. Rock, electronic, alternative, and pop are all okay sometimes. It suggests some artists to me. Nothing great. I keep hitting "More Artists" but it's as if iTunes only knows 40 artists or so. I'm looking for the following: Insomnium (Melodic Death Metal) Ghost Brigade (Sludge Metal) The Birthday Massacre (New Wave) Trivium (Heavy Metal) Amaranthe (Pop Metal) Nope. None of that is available. Nothing even close to any of that is available. I end up settling with: Slipknot (Shock Rock) Metallica (Metal) Lady Gaga (Pop) Okay... what does Apple Music suggest to me now? Slipknot. Just endless Slipknot. The band only has 5 albums but Apple Music is suggesting every song at least twice. Don't get me wrong, Slipknot is fine, but I've known about them forever and I'm looking for something new. Doesn't the fact that I picked them in the artists selection screen indicate to Apple that it's definitely not breaking new grounds for me? I search for the artists that I listed previously and go through and mark down that I love 100 or so of their songs (a process that takes around 2 hours). What do I get for my efforts? What is Apple recommending to me now? Slipknot. Endless Slipknot. So Apple Music's ability to suggest music and help you discover new stuff is just as horrid as, if not worse than, Genius was 10 years ago. iTunes used to have a metadata field for lyrics. Metadata appears to have been removed sometime in the 3 years since I swapped to Spotify, so now there's no support for lyrics at all. In contrast, Spotify has lyrics for seemingly ever track in their library, and all of it is synchronized to the song so that it'll automatically scroll as you play the song, and you can skip around in a track by clicking on different lines in the lyrics (so you could, for example, just skip to the chorus.) Also, though Apple touts that they have 7M more tracks than Spotify, there are albums which I've found on Spotify which I can't find on Apple Music. To name two which I discovered were missing during my two hours with Apple Music: Super Meat Boy Soundtrack Metroid Cinematica Are they niche? Absolutely. But I want to mix them into my playlists, and I can't because Apple doesn't have them. My final assessment of Apple Music is not only is it not a Spotify killer, it's not even a Spotify competitor. It's a useless piece of crap.
