I don't like it - Cons

No other new things to attract me

If you already have Amazon Prime, or an Amazon Echo, the discounted monthly pricing will be an ideal choice. Like me, I don't have Amazon anything, why i will cost $9.99 per month for Amazon Music Unlimited. This price is as same as what I pay for Apple Music, Spotify or the like. Moreover, it supports big catalog, curated playlists, personalized stations and so on, there is no big differences from the other streaming music services.

tens of millions?

It says that it provides with tens of millions of songs with new releases from today's most popular artists. There is no specific number to show the music number.
