While I do like Pandora, I prefer Last.FM. You can do the whole "recommendation" thing there as well, but the great part is being able to listen to your "library" of songs. (just the list of people you choose)
Another great thing about Last.FM is they have Mac software that lets you play the music outside of your browser AND it integrates with iTunes. It will go through your library and auto add all the artists in your iTunes library to your Last.FM Library. Here's the link.
Yes, but you really don't have any control over what order they are played. The same as pandora. It's like a true radio station, but only the music you add to your library will play. Also, you don't need to have the songs in iTunes to add them to your library (just to make that clear)
The other thing you can do is play the "recommended" station and Last.FM will go out and find more music that is similar to the bands in your library. (closer to what pandora does).
Not having control is fine, I like shuffle, and chances are if it's in my library it's because I like it anyway. I'll have to put it on the list check it out. thx. There's so much new crap anymore I can't keep up.
