5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice if you have a WP8, Win8, or 360 December 7, 2012
By Cagny
Edition:12 Month Pass
I find this service much better than Pandora and Spotifly. The Music Pass has the ability to discover good music like Pandora and has a library that rivals Spotifly. I actually find the social networking part of Spotifly very annoying. All of the sudden, I'm paranoid if I'm listening to music that my peers would judge... "No, I swear my kid was listening to Rafi, not me!"

Anyways, if you like to use your Xbox 360 to stream music to your TV, have a Windows Phone, or use your Windows 8 PC to stream music, this service can't be beat (NOTE: Xbox Music isn't available on Windows 7 or Windows Phone 7 at time of writing).

I find the "reviewer" who complains that it cost money is missing the point. If you don't want ads, you're going to have to pay for music. This also gives people the ability to have access to a massive music library without spending a lot of money. It's also a great option for people who don't want to pirate (and more convenient).

Update 10/1/13: I guess Microsoft is opening up Xbox Music to IOS and to Andriod so it's now going to be on all devices (nothing for Mac OS yet). They're also reporting that they have 10 million more songs than Spotify or Rido (both boast to have about a 20 million song library). I just wish there was a client version you could use with Windows 7 - you can only stream it via a web browser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spotify/Pandora Alternative December 15, 2012
Edition:12 Month Pass
Even with my old Zune Pass still active, this stands as a great deal in of itself. If you own a Windows Phone or Windows 8 device, this is a much better service than using Spotify or Pandora on your device. First, it syncs in with your Microsoft account so you can manage your subscription along with your other Windows 8 and XBOX purchases/subscriptions (such as XBOX LIVE) under a single account. I have found it annoying to have to have a separate account for these other services. Next up, Xbox Music doesn't require you to login with Facebook unlike Spotify. For those who are anti-social (or just hate sharing your music interests with the world) Xbox Music has you covered. Also Xbox Music includes unlimited music video streaming so you can listen to Gangnam Style and transition to the music video soon after. It might not be a killer decision maker but could be icing to decide between the values of each service.

Before you buy, Xbox Music lets you try a six month free trial that includes unlimited streaming of music to get a feel of the service. Please Note: If you cancel your subscription (as with any music subscription service such as Spotify or Rhapsody), you lose the ability to store tracks for offline play. Your service is also downgraded to streaming only when you do so. If you do not care about ownership of the music, then please disregard this note.

Comparison Chart (all paid features unless denoted with *, ^ is a parenthetical note):
X is for Xbox Music, S for Spotify, P for Pandora.

-Cost: X = $9.99/month ($100/year for Xbox Music) S = $5-$10/month P = $3.

5.0 out of 5 stars great gift for those on the fence November 28, 2012
Edition:12 Month Pass
XBox Music Pass continues the excellent Zune service and at a much lower price.

Great thing about this card: it fits in a stocking, and is a great item for a kid without a credit card, or anyone who doesn't want to input cc info to sign up for a service.

Another great thing: since it's a prepaid card, you don't have to worry that it's going to roll itself over into a periodic charge on your cc.

Missing from the old Zune service is 10 DRM-unlocked downloads per month. I had Zune Pass for a couple years, and found this was not that big a deal. Remembering to use the 10 downloads was an issue - I only got to it about 1/5 of the time. And not all publishers/artists gave MS rights to include their downloadable material in the 10-a-month program, so availability was hit or miss.

Note the 12-month card includes unlimited streaming for 6 months, then 10 hr/mo streaming for the next 6 months. You can stream *or* download to PC, Tablet, or Phone. Downloading to your PC, Tablet is not streaming; syncing to your phone is not streaming; playing music via XBox is streaming only. Once the recipient is sure they want XBox Music on a subscription basis (and once they have a cc to submit) the subscription is available in 1 or 12 month increments, with no limits to streaming hrs/month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for Music Lovers June 27, 2013
Edition:12 Month Pass
I had Zune Pass for a few years before they changed it to Xbox Music. What I really like about the switch is the great integration it has between your Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox. If you download music on your Windows 8 PC you have the option to have it automatically uploaded to the cloud to stream on your other Windows 8/RT device(s), Windows Phone(s) and Xbox(es). You can download the songs again on your Windows 8/RT device(s) and Windows Phone(s). While streaming is only available for the Xbox.

I like having the subscription model, because I can download as many albums as I want and not having to worry about my budget. When I used iTunes I spent on average over $30 dollars a month. A one month Xbox Music subscription was a no brainer for me. For those that say: "You don't own the music once your subscription is over." I say to them: "You'll most likely be always downloading new music for the rest of your life. There will always be new artists, new songs and in the long run; a subscription model is much more inexpensive than paying per track/album."

One scenario that I love and always happens is when I hear I song I like. I use Bing to identify the song on my Windows Phone and I can download it immediately without worrying about spending the money for it because I already have for the subscription.

At the time of this review, Microsoft is currently working on bringing Xbox Music to the web and soon you'll be able to stream your whole library from your web browser as long as there is an internet connection. The Xbox Music Pass has unlimited streaming, downloads and can have one membership on many devices.

I highly recommend this for anyone wanting a way to get whole, high-quality discographies legally, conveniently and safely; while being able to access your library from nearly anywhere.
