We've been waiting for this announcement for a while. We had heard bits and pieces of Google signing up Universal, and Warner Music, then just yesterday we got word that the last pieces were in place. Today, we got the full announcement for Google Play Music All Access, which is what Google calls "Radio without rules."...

I suspect that Warner Music, et al, have a high asking price for their music library, given the "lesson learned" from iTunes and the unlimited nature of the service.

Spotify is $10 a month.

I'll be interested to see whether Universal will still be using watermarked files for this service, as they do on Spotify.

This is really average price for something like this. Whats gets me is this is nothing new so I dont know why Google is making it a big deal. If im paying this much monthly I might as well get Rhapsody

Any mention on the song library? Spotify is near 15million, the one that gets NO RESPECT Slacker and for $3.99 offers no adds and wi-fi caching for 25 custom stations, comes in at 13million songs.. Did Google mention this?
