Online Music Sucks

I'd happily pay for online music - if only they had more of the stuff I like.

A quick search shows that I can't track down any Covenant, VNV Nation, etc. on Napster or iTunes. The Magnolia Soundtrack is likewise unavailable, and almost anything I search for that isn't enirely mainstream has huge gaps.

I'm not paying to subscribe to a service that doesn't...provide service.

Oh, and iTunes doesn't provide the one service I actually want - music streaming. With Napster £10 a month gives me streaming access to as much music as I like - with iTunes £10 a month gives me 11 new songs a month. No real contest there.
