There's a place on the web where the comments don't suck

SoundCloud is supposed to be an audio platform, but watching it play back your favorite new jam can be just as rewarding as listening to it. Ever since a big redesign two years ago, the signature wave of orange that travels across the song's waveform has been accompanied by little pop-up comments from fellow users of the service. Unlike the vitriolic lambasting of YouTube, however, here you are treated to a charmingly innocent torrent of positivity and approval. Every website and service wants to be social, but only a few have managed to turn that into an asset rather than a burden.

Click play below and share in the love.

PS — Thanks to Joris Zaalberg for alerting us to this awesome comments visualizer that puts the gleeful reactions front and center on you screen. Well worth a try.
