Imeem.com: Stream it now…

January 5th, 2008 Posted in Music, web 2.0

Imeem.com…Hi, my name is James and I am a Google Reader addict. My old boss jokes that I spend 90% of my time in front of reader, he is probably not that far off. Before the holidays I was reading a post on Listening Post talking about Imeem’s Music Blog 2007 playlists. So here is the deal, Imeem is a community music site that allows you to listen to streamed music via a Flash player interface. You can build playlists, rate music, comment music, etc. What is amazing about Imeem is that there is a ton of music that you can listen to.

The 2007 playlist is just an example of how much content is currently available. What Imeem has done is taken Music Blog’s 2007 playlist, you know the ones where the blog picks their top 10, 15, 20, 100 songs. The issue is that most of these blogs just post the titles and you can not hear how it sounds. With Imeem’s library they have created playlists that allow for you to listen to the music. I am really impressed with what they have done so far and I plan to dig a lot deeper into the community aspect to see how the music uploading works and how the review system is tied together.
