“Algorithm-powered ‘personal radio’ services like Pandora are all very well. But they don't feel nearly as personal as 8tracks, a music site where real people do the choosing of tunes.”
- Time Magazine, 50 Best Websites of 2011
“When it comes to finding new music, 8tracks has long been one of the cooler methods.”
- MG Siegler, TechCrunch
“8tracks has slowly and steadily emerged as the industry’s reigning Internet mixtape startup”
- Colleen Taylor, GigaOM
“A free, legal music service we love”
- Peter Kafka, Silicon Alley Insider
“8tracks takes a fun approach to creating custom mixes with the idea being that user-crafted music programming is more entertaining than algorithm-generated lists.”
- Jennifer Van Grove, Mashable
