MySpace Music vs Apple iTunes - round 2...

MySpace Music's long-awaited overhaul went live today, granting users access to thousands of streaming songs and new features such as customizable playlists, updated aesthetics, and a direct connection to Amazon.com's MP3 library.

Apple iTunes 8 review

The new homepage resembles the Apple iTunes music store and has a cleaner, more streamlined feel than many MySpace pages. It features quick links to your personalized music page, videos, featured playlists, top artists, shows, classifieds and discussion forums.

MySpace inked a deal with three major record labels to allow access to free copies of songs, so there is no shortage of good tunes.

The best new feature is the personalized music page. From there, users can generate playlists of up to 100 tracks. A pop-out player keeps music playing in the background and is handy for cranking tunes at work (as long as the site isn't blocked, as it is from many workplaces). Some but not all tracks have an Amazon.com MP3 Store link next to them, which sends you directly to Amazon's site for purchase. The greatest aspect of MySpace's collaboration with Amazon is the DRM-free tracks playable on all MP3 devices.

MySpace Music's overhaul has potential to engage users in a more socially oriented environment than other music purchasing services, but with so much competition out there, it won't be an easy journey.
