After two plus years of using Pandora and less than one month of using Slacker I've decided that Slacker is so very much better.
Simple, when I create an artist station on Pandora I get that artist and usually the same handful of songs played over and over again.
Example: I created a Frank Turner station on each platform. With Pandora I got my Frank fix and about sixty-seven different versions and covers of New Slang. Okay, I exaggerate about the number of versions; it was more like a handful. And yes, it really did play at least every third or fourth song. I even gave the song a thumb down and I got that version of that same song to stop popping up. Seeing as there are multiple covers and live versions of the same song, well, you can guess how annoyed I got to simply keep hearing the various other versions of the same exact song.
I created the same station on Slacker and I've been getting my Frank fix along with a whole host of other cool music. I've actually stumbled across some new music that I like a lot. And there isn't the constant repeat of the same four or five songs over and over and over...
That pops into my head every morning while I take a shower (when I first turn on my music).
The good thing for Pandora is that I only have about two dozen regular readers. But if they tell two people and those two people tell two people ,,,
