Epitonic was visionary.  From the very start, it recognized that the Internet could (and would) be an incredibly powerful and democratizing force for music.  It pioneered a wealth of features that would eventually become standard for music-oriented websites.  But ultimately, it was a simple, informative and enjoyable way to discover new music.   Due in part to its authentic voice and DIY ethic, it was an important vehicle for the promotion of independent music. I'm glad its back.
