Even if you don't like his music, James Blunt is one of the most entertaining people on twitter. 

There are comedians who don't deal with hecklers as well as he does.

 

Those comedians might not have his level of commercial success either.

If you take a look at his career to date and philanthropic work, you realise the world would be a better place with more Blunts.  And fewer Nugents. 

 

I have no idea why Nugent isn't in jail. He's openly boasted about some pretty terrible things.

I moved to tidal. Sounds infinitely better than Spotify! 

 

 

I just signed up for tidal last night (ended my paid Spotify a while back because I find the app incredibly buggy), currently £1 for three months or something daft.

Sorry he triggers you....do you need a plush toy to cuddle now?

I was thinking more about the time he boasted about sex with underage girls.

And do they pay artists a decent royalty, or is it Spotify 2.0?

 

They're pretty good... for streaming services:

 

STREAMING PLATFORM        ROYALTY RATES

Tidal Music                         $0.01284 per stream

Apple Music                        $0.008 per stream

Amazon Music                    $0.00402 per stream

Spotify                                $0.00318 per stream

YouTube Music                    $0.002 per stream

Pandora                              $0.00133 per stream

Deezer                                $0.0011 per stream

 

 

EDIT: sorted list

I'm lost as to why more people aren't using Tidal.

 

I got it when it was more expensive, but now that its the same price as a lossy Spotify subscription, why stick with Spotify?  Tidal has more content, more exclusive content, videos, slicker interface and of course has lossless music as standard. The daily mixes algorithm works much better on Tidal for me as well.  Spotify is honestly garbage in comparison, and they've got themselves in a right pickle, promising HiFi but left it too long, and now they'll have to give it for free.

Like a broken pencil.  Pointless.

Pays to do a bit of research before you post.  Less chance of making a fool of oneself.

I tried Tidal for a while - great sound quality, but not as comprehensive a range as Apple Music, nor (and this is what killed it for me) did it really work at all via CarPlay. Ended up using Apple Music in the car and Tidal at home for a while. Maintaining 2 was too much bother. Cancelled Tidal.

I had a tidal trial at one point and it was ok, but I have apple music and again for me the integration with the phones / computers / car etc is pretty important to me.

Still, at least apple music aren't too far down the paying out chart (over double spotify and 2/3 of tidal).

He doesn't trigger me. I just think he's a reprehensible prîck.

Yeah: that’s mild compared to what else he’s said. Ignore his pronographic lust for guns and hunting; he’s an all-round jerk. Second only to Kid Rock in his eagerness to lick the orange one’s boots.
