Muziic – Music and surfing online have practically become one and the same to me. I spend hours on the Web on a daily basis, and unless I’m watching a video, there’s always music playing in the background. When I learned that a music hub was joining last week’s Weekly Faves, I was excited to check Muziic out. So, what’s my verdict? I think Muziic is a great music center worth exploring; it has an easy to use interface, a nice stack of music consumption options, and the advertisements’ presence on the site is kept to a minimum.
On the other hand, there are some major downsides to Muziic. The first and most important in my opinion is the inability to browse songs or artists by genre. The same applies to the radio stations listed on the site. The second hitch I was surprised to find was that all the radio stations you can listen to on Muziic are from the US only (Caribbean and Puerto Rican stations included). I feel that’s a shame because the Muziic community has much to gain from being able to tune in to foreign stations as well.
All in all, Muziic is a great music stop, but I think in terms of personal use, I’ll stick to Blip.fm and my YouTube playlist. Sure, Muziic offers cool features like web/desktop players and a cool Facebook app, but these didn’t persuade me to change my online music consumption channels.
