A Legendary That Changed The Music Industry: Napster, The European Rhapsody 2022


Napster is the legendary website that changed the music industry forever.

Napster is perfect for any American who loves Rhapsody but lives in Europe, just as Rhapsody is perfect for any European who loves Napster but lives in America. The differences between the two services aren’t more than skin deep.

Positives

  • Napster and Rhapsody are basically the same; they share their high quality services and large library.

Negatives

  • There isn’t any free subscription.

Rhapsody In Europe

Anyone born after 1990 will surely remember the name of the very first music pirating service to break into the popular conscious. Originally founded in 1999 by the likes of Shawn Fanning, John Fanning, and Sean Parker, Napster became an overnight hit.  After getting shut down by the RIAA and a series of buyouts (by Roxio and BestBuy, notably), this pioneer of the online music market was purchased and merged with Rhapsody, which had already made it big in the United States, in 2011.

Rhapsody’s ownership of Napster, in addition to the fact that their markets are completely separated (Rhapsody is exclusive to the US, whereas Napster is only available in Europe) makes comparisons of the sites little more than intellectually stimulating. Like Rhapsody, Napster offers online and mobile services for two different price ranges (In fact, that depends on the country you are using from. For example, in France, for some reason, only the more expensive plan is available).  Both services offer gigantic libraries with millions upon millions of songs to choose from. In addition, both services offer no free membership. There is a 30-day free trial, but after that users are expected to pay up.

Napster is perfect for any American who loves Rhapsody but lives in Europe, just as Rhapsody is perfect for any European who loves Napster but lives in America. The differences between the two services aren’t more than skin deep. However, this means that Napster shares Rhapsody’s high-quality offerings and dependable service. Is today’s version of Napster original? Not at all. But it doesn’t matter: as long as it keeps on offering people what they want, it’ll do fine.
