    What do you think of the Last.fm alternative: Grooveshark!

    Grooveshark

    I found it to be really great. I really loved the UI. What do you guys think? If you know a better Last.fm alternative then please post.

    It's got plenty of songs but it would be nice to have a Banshee plugin, now that Last.fm is no longer internationally free.

    Yeh. Hopefully Grooveshark gets more attention and some developers start integrating Grooveshark in to their programs.

    Wow looks cool...except when I visited the site to try it well it doesn't let me:

    We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.

    So if it's actually very good then lucky for you the people in the U.S. but if not then use Grooveshark!

    Seconded. Very nice looking, all sorts of music and a functional, minimal UI. I hope it catches on.

    Well that's great and I do still enjoy it too don't get me wrong but the thing is their going to start charging soon for their services which some people like me are just too cheap/poor to pay for. Of course if you like Last.fm (which many people do) and your willing to pay then great for you .

    Bad news. Just like in Pandora they don't allow countries outside of the U.S. to use their service. It seems Grooveshark is the only alternative for me.
