Rant alert!!!

Do you guys get tired of email and snail mail from companies you interact with?  Evidently the 2010's has propagated the touchy feely industry.  They employ legions of consultants and stat guys crunching numbers as to how shitty they treat their customers.  Every phone conference is recorded for quality purposes.  WTF.  It's everything from healthcare (the worst offender) to buying a car.  I'm bombarded by the bank and health folks constantly, and this effort can't be cheap.

Example: After my bank of 39 years didn't pay my property taxes, the guy said he couldn't help me and couldn't successfully transfer me to someone that could.  Then he said he hoped that I would give him an excellent score in the inevitable forthcoming e-mail survey.

They should just employ people that aren't assholes and do their simple functions. Damn.  If customer service is an issue, the supervisor knows.  Everyone is so pussyfied these days, they can't kick jackasses to the curb.  They want to have leverage from the victims to reprimand.

The State Farms Commercial playing "Don't you forget about me" Simple Minds from 1985 gets in my ear.

Yep, that's another catchy worm for sure. 

BTW... I saw a Talking Heads tribute band (Same As It Ever Was) in Charlotte a few times and those guys do a fine job recreating their music.  I usually avoid tribute groups, but these guys were uncanny.

Watch out you might get what you're after
Boom babies strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait till the party's over
Hold tight We're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag
Time for jumpin' overboard
The transportation is here
Close enough but not too far,
Maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet! Hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown! Dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work and baby what did you except
Gonna burst into flame

My house! Is out of the ordinary
That's right! Don't wanna hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin' yet
Everything's stuck together
And I don't know what you expect starring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Now go and play this, it's wearing me down.  Grin

2 subscriptions available in tidal ed, one is cd quality bit rate, and is the more expensive option.

Up here in canada you can try it free for a month, assume same down there as well.

Hey guys, thanks for the input. Helen listens to Spotify on a few different devices and it sounds ok on them. When she logged in on our main system it was just bad. Very compressed. We compared some tunes from You Tube to the same ones on Spotify and it just was not close. Keep in mind I have no idea about the resolution of each but YT was clearly better. I then compared a song on YT to a record...yea, the record was better for sure. I'll give it another go.............

I have not tried Tidal and actually do not know a thing about it.

I will look into it.

I've been running Spotify through a Bluesound Node straight into my pre using analog input. I've been using this set up for a couple of years. Last year I logged almost 50,000 minutes. Mostly I find it sounds pretty good.However,like with vinyl,or CD,sometimes it's just not a very good recording. YMMV.
