That Spotify iPhone app review in full – and Daniel Ek's taste

Ok, that headline was a lie. Sorry, but we’re not going to review the Spotify iPhone app that just launched, because as far as we can tell it’s identical to the leaked beta we reviewed over a month ago (while every other media outlet was having to make do with an official Spotify YouTube video). Apart from one or two crashes we’re hearing about via Twitter, and the fact that it doesn’t yet work in Ireland (boo!) it’s the same. Let’s move on.

Instead we’re gong to point out that co-founder Daniel Ek has either the coolest taste in music, or the worst, depending on your perspective. Demoing the new app to Sky News, Ek played Madonna’s “Holiday” (WTF?!) and Michael Jackson’s “Bad”. We’ll just leave it at that.
