Why the hell does every swipe cause a loading screen to appear...?
I'm guessing traffic is pretty crazy during the first day, will probably be faster later on. (I checked it out in the morning and it was nice and quick, then after lunch it was having a hard time keeping up)
wow that site just paralyzed my Macbook completely...
I’m gonna say this again:
Don’t you dare screw with my native scroll behavior.
It's a fullscreen website, so there's no scroll. Navigation events are triggered by the menu, keyboard events and mouse wheel event <3
Can't seem to get past the second event now; eternal loading bar! Nice visual design though for what it's worth...
Looks great on Google Fiber.
I can't even get past the first event. This has happened for the past 3 years every release of Year in Music at first has been terrible, but I love it.
Awesome visual design, lots of great content and potential music to listen to...all stuck behind a truly awful scrolling navigation.
It's frozen my macbook at least 3 times already
Slowest website of 2015.
The visual effects and use of gradients is one of the best I've seen in a while, but holy hell it takes like 3 minutes between screens because it keeps loading.
didn't have any issues. pretty cool experience.
I think it's absolutely beautiful but I'm more disappointed by the fact that it doesn't generate my top 100 songs like last year! :(
You actually have it if you look at the generated playlist!
Ahh!! Thank you!! I missed the "Get More Top Tracks" button!
What a horrible user experience.
Showing the wrong artists on a lot of mine. Images are correct but artist name is wrong...very wrong.
I thought their selections of my top artists/ albums/ tracks was a bit off, given they all included stuff I hadn’t listened to in years.
Checked it against my last.fm scrobbles, and, sure enough, Spotify’s data was completely wrong. Seems pretty weird that a third-party app would be able to understand my listening data better than the application I’m actually using to listen to the music.
Quite honestly a huge disappointment. Last year's infographic-like site was tons more user friendly and fun to read.
Also, I think they did some different algorithms to decide on certain topics, which didn't quite fit with what my year sounded like.
Pretty cool, but they forgot to update the seasons for the southern hemisphere.
"Start of the year" is not during winter when you live this side of the world.
Loved the content presented and it's visually beautiful.
One gripe - I wish there was a table of contents, page list on load so I knew when it ended instead of scrolling to the void. Didn't expect the hamburger menu to be the navigation for this experience or for the regular 'ol Spotify site.
Now if only I could actually get that content to share without 404ing.
That was a pretty incredible experience. Didn't crash my rMBP. It was an absolute pleasure. My experience seems to be the exception based on the other comments though.
When did "it didn't crash my macbook" become something to qualify an incredible experience? Not crashing should be the bare minimum we expect from a website not something to be praised for. A website that crashes a computer has totally failed in it's job.
"Didn't crash in my rMBP" is not the reason why it was incredible. "Didn't crash in my rMBP" is a note to other readers of this thread that it's not necessarily going to crash for you, in fact, you might just have an "incredible experience", like I did.
In any case, I had an incredible experience. Even told a friend about it. They obviously have an issue in that my experience, which was fantastic, seems to be the exception rather than the rule for their users.
