Honestly the whole thing does seem too good to be true. I've been listening for the last 20 minutes on the free service and have havent heard an ad (ok actually one came on as I was about to hit post but still) Wheres the profit coming from?

Also the rating system makes no sense as it appears to be generated entirely on plays making it just a vauge popularity bar thing. Not that rating systems really make sense most other places either mind, UI designers just dont seem to be able to let them go.

Spotify is great. I just don't see how they can justify that 10 a month subscription. Thats about half what I pay for the internet itself.

Reminder that 10 is what a single album costs if you, y'know, buy it.

Im not following you, surely 10 for unlimited music on demand for a month is a good deal whichever way you slice it? Are you saying that it should cost less than a single album? Of course if you were to compare it to just stealing it then its a bad deal but then that would just be a stupid comparison.
