The criticism

I think a lot of how useful or absorbing Spotify‘s Wrapped breakdown, depends absolutely on your alert habits. If the alive account is your main music driver, and you only use it to play tracks you’re actively alert to, it’s quite insightful.

But myself — and a lot of other people — either use Spotify in affiliation with other music services, and/or as a absorption tool.

For example, I still advance a agenda music library, so the majority of my active alert is done via files on my phone. Spotify, on the other hand, I use at work to drown out the noise of my aggravating co-workers (love you really) and to help me focus.

Generally, this means that my Spotify Wrapped is consistently skewed appear ambient or beat-based music, which isn’t really a representation of what I absolutely actively listen to.

But — and this is the big catechism — does that absolutely matter?

No. Not really.

Spotify’s 2019 Wrapped is just a bit of fun presented in an agreeable way, it’s a little article that helps us forget the amaranthine backbreaker of this abhorrent world.
