The Good Attractive and intuitive interface with rich jukebox functionality; three-tier service, including free Rhapsody 25 and Rhapsody To Go; rich biographical information on artists; radio stations allow you to skip songs; lets you access your music from any Web-connected PC; seamless integration with some digital media receivers; nice playlist management features.
The Bad Some initial bugginess with Rhapsody To Go transfer feature; no "smart" playlists; no autosync of subscription-based downloads.
The Bottom Line A ton of new features, including Rhapsody To Go and full jukebox functionality, gives this elegant subscription service some fresh and very powerful legs.

Stereo controls, song progress, and artist information (including album art) are displayed cleanly along the top of the application. Rhapsody packs curious factoids about artists, so it's fun and addictive to browse. Rhapsody includes links to artists' official Web sites and suggests related performers that might match what you enjoy. It even includes song information on albums that it doesn't carry--a truly useful resource.
