There are all kinds of reason we listen to music. What I like, you may hate and vice versa. My choice of music may at any time vary based on my mood or the task at hand. Over the years, I’ve gotten a lot of CDs. Hundreds of them. Then music got digital and I’ve digitized much of my music and loaded it only my devices. Yet there is still music that I don’t have and likely wouldn’t simply purchase. That’s where a music service comes into play. As a disclaimer, I’m going to post a link to Amazon and I earn a small commission if you buy something.
Amazon Music Unlimited is one such service that delivers you a vast library of music for a small monthly fee. Is it any good? Don’t rely on my word, you can try it free for 30 days. After that time, they have various plans from which you can choose. I’ve outlined the overall benefits and each of the plans below.
