Thanks for the recommendations I've really been enjoying them but one thing
I would like to add is that some songs from the artist, Hi Finesse have not
been added such as Odyssey, Equivalence, and Event Horizon as well as the
full version of Sharks Don't Sleep by Dean Valentine. I really love and
enjoy these songs but I have been waiting to see if perhaps they'd be added
but from my point it doesn't seem like they will. So if you could add them
or find a way for all of us users of Spotify to listen and enjoy these song
with the app, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the work you've
done for all of us to enjoy music in the best way possible.
