Multimedia, AV Earlier today I bought a $10 album from iTumes, which I wish I hadn't. The reviews were glorious, and the previews not indicative. Listening to the album all I could hear was hipster drivel. Obviously, I wanted my money back. Well, bad luck. iTunes won't give refunds. I tweeted about it, and a friend suggested Rdio. Rdio, a brand new streaming service, currently offers a 3-day free trial -- without the need for a credit card. For $5 let's you stream their huge library on your desktop via an Adobe AIR app or browser, and for $10 let's you also stream from Android/BBerry/iOS, plus be able to sync your music with you offline on these devices. Unlike Last.fm and Pandora, Rdio let's you stream on-demand.

Of course now I'm very curious to know what album this is, could you enlighten us?

I was wondering the same thing.. "hipster drivel" leads me to think its something like Postal Service or Decemberists.

Just checked their MySpace page, and you are right, I find it terrible, boring, pretentious crap. Never heard the term "hipster" being used over here (Netherlands). I assume you bought the album a while ago, before their MySpace page included all these very bad songs? Otherwise I can only say: sucker! ;)
