you can listen... as long as your have java installed.
that being said, daytrotter's $2/month charge has been one of my best musical investments. i read their e-mails every day and only actually bite on about 1 artist a week (they release about 20/week). even with such light usage i have discovered two of my favorite artists of all-time aon their and downloaded about 200 live sets with amazing artwork and sound quality over the last several years... i would recommend it to anyone
