Dear Spotify,


Not having the ability to dislike songs on daily mixes is manipulating what I get offered, and manipulation isn't what I'm looking for when I want to listen to music that suits my tastes. I like a variety of music, I might go from listening to music with distorted guitars and clean vocals when I'm wanting to connect with my sorrows, and later I'll listen to some wonderful medieval sounding music when I want to try to find my heart's song and connect to the earth; or maybe I'm feeling like a synthetic soundtrack to game with. Sometimes the algorithm shows me tracks I really dig, but then other times I'll hate the sounds finding their way through my ears from the first time I listen to the noise. Then there's how the artist might factor into my tastes, there are groups where I absolutely love one of their songs but feel unimpressed with their other work, or else I generally enjoy what they make but then that one time they tried something completely different *shudders*. To stop the clear manipulation of what arrives to my speakers for consumption, I need more ability to steer the algorithm that feeds me music, and having a way to stop tracks I don't like from ever showing up in a daily mix again is a big step in that direction. Having tracks I enjoy cycle through is great, having tracks I hate never getting out of the loop is infuriating; music I'm indifferent to might eventually fall to one side or the other. I also want control over the disliked songs the same as liked songs because I am allowed to change my mind; music tastes change over time, y'all should know that. Ever had a song you think really jams for the first 30 seconds, every time you notice the sound, before realizing it's actually one you despise?


-Sincerely, a concerned product, er *ahem* subscriber, or umm person. Yes, I'm defiantly a human who eats soundbits for breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, supper, afters, midnight snack; totally normal.


If I have to listen top that screaming tub of flub called ''Lewis Capaldi'' one more time I'm giving up with Spotify. I cannot stand him screaming the same line louder and louder each verse, it's so bad. Yet Spotify keeps recommending, featuring and putting on my personalised playlist, this is why you need a dislike button. 

You can block artists on Spotify so you’ll never hear him again if you
don’t want to


Seriously no idea why they even removed this in the first place.
