Google Music is UNDERRATED

Why do Spotify and Xbox music get so much attention from the Verge and others? I've used Google Music since beta and love it. It has all the features of premium Spotify account for FREE. True, you can't stream music, but putting your entire library in the cloud for free is incredible. I just downloaded it onto my new Windows 8 PC and can attest to the fact that it was totally seamless. Plus 300+ of my songs have been FREE from Google. Sure I can't stream, but I can own 300+ songs, most of which are pretty decent.

I don't understand why there isn't more hype for this service. All of my friends with Androids don't even know they can put there music on there phone, yet alone stream it....
