People Who Pay for Music Have Better Taste in Music. Discuss.

Do you actually pay for the music you listen to or are you happy to find free streams? Or maybe you still torrent (which I don’t understand, but never mind).  Digital Music News postulates that if you do pay, you actually have better taste in music.

It’s something of a spurious theory, but hear me out. Their conclusions are based on the most-listened to albums on Tidal, a CD-quality lossless streaming service that offers amazing audio quality for $19.99 a month. If you’re serious about high-quality sound, Tidal is something you should consider. Audiophiles who want to stream love it.

Tidal just released their list of the most listened-to albums by their paying subscribers. This is where DMN makes the connection between paying and taste.
