Music Unlimited

Featured New Releases on the Music Unlimited Service:

Evanescence – Evanescence
Fans were introduced to Amy Lee and company in 2006, through their hit Fallen, a breakaway success for a female-fronted band in a very male-dominated genre. Listeners resonated through the dark, brooding tone of the music with Lee’s introspective and transparent lyric style. After several years and a few adjustments, Lee was careful to maintain that personal relationship, reconsidering producers and creative sessions to be sure the band was in the right place to put together this dynamic self-titled album.

Bjork – Biophilia
From Icelandic ingénue in the Sugarcubes to Academy Award nominated actress, (who can forget the flamingo dress), to her latest solo release, Biophilia, Bjork has forged an identity, career and voice that is unique and incomparable. The background surrounding the creation of Biophilia is almost as interesting as the album itself. New instruments were created. There is an app available for each track, which when played in sequence on an iPad becomes an interactive album. There is also an $800 cd set that comes with a set of tuning forks and a lacquered oak box. Everything is an extension of the music however, and the Biophilia record is an ambitious album even for an artist who knows no boundaries. It may take a few listens to get your head around the album, but the effort will be rewarded.

Ryan Adams – Ashes & Fire
Before the release of his 2nd poetry collection, Hello Sunshine, in 2009, Ryan Adams spoke during a “Discussion on Poetry” at the New York Public Library. Known as a prolific artist, he was asked about finding inspiration between publishing books, writing music and even painting. He coyly replied, “I’m just one of those people that you know I will take apart your VCR if you leave me in your house.” Adams has shuffled through genres and external players, but this newest album strips down to the core of his solo style that has managed to flow seamlessly through several different iterations.

  • Do you know when they will talk more about the ps vita?

  • yes , we want to know more about Vita !!!

  • all i want to know its about FFvs13!!! GOSH! i cant believe that FF13 and 13-2 will be both out and not even a single word yet on FFVS13!

  • Qriocity music unlimited,please streamline your service into PS Home.I love your service,the selection is great.

    Problem::A lot of the new Bios on artist are wrong are either omit some of their biggest achievements.

  • @4 Hell no!!!
    To have every idiot walking around listening to their ghetto rap music, no thanks I rather go to my local homeless shelter if i wanna hear that.

  • Will Walking Dead Season 2 be available on ‘Video Unlimited’ too?

    Just wanted to say ‘Video Unlimited’ is really great and sooo easy to find the shows/ movies you’re looking for. Can’t wait to see how it evolves.

    I’d like to be able turn down the audio track that is in the menu screen though. It seems loud for a background music on my set-up.

    • Christopher Lastrapes

      The Walking Dead Season 2 will be available through Video Unlimited on PlayStation3 and Sony Tablet. We’re glad you’re enjoying the new experience!

  • @5
    obviously you’d be listening to your own music and not anyone else’s. It wouldn’t just a cluster F of music going on

  • Thank you for separating the US and Canadian store selections. I realize that there are rights and distribution concerns over getting everything 1to 1, but I appreciate the attempt at closing the gap.

  • With Halloween upcoming it would be a good time to FINALLY get the entire set of Friday the 13th movies on the store. We’re still missing part 5 “A New Beginning” & part 9 “Jason Goes to Hell”. Thanks in advance.

  • when is the new video unlimited ui coming to the ps store? the ui is very very good the psn store needs the ui update asap..

  • first and foremost, lose the music in the Video Unlimited menu. Did not make me want to use the service.

    Also, once its fully implemented, hope that its part of the video selection of th XMB just like Netflix and Hulu. It would be poor to separate it.

  • The problem with Video Unlimited is that it’s just a new way to present the same exact product. There are still plenty of underlying problems that have not been addressed. No closed caption (Hulu and others have that option, some include options for different languages), no different languages for audio, no ability to gift movies or tv shows, no ability to buy tv seasons for a cheaper price, no ability to rent tv shows for U$0.99 like on app store, no foreign movies, no documentary and other types of genre option, no ability to pre order a tv season like on app store, etc etc etc.

    Good idea, bad execution.

  • (REGARDING VIDEO UNLIMITED)
    Let me just tell you right now, Sony, so you hear it from me, though I am sure you have and will hear it from many others: Your price point is off. By a lot.

    I watch anime. That is almost exclusively what I am interested in with this kind of service. At your current price point, it is $2 per episode. Let’s take the first series I pulled up at random, Initial D First Stage, an anime that is many years old. At $2 per episode, with no whole-season discount, we’re looking at $50 for the first season.

    Let’s look at Amazon. Initial D First Stage S.A.V.E box set from Funimation is $18. You are charging me WAY more for something that I don’t even get a physical copy of. And that’s the marked down version of Initial D, the S.A.V.E. series of releases, older stuff. It’s in cheap cardboard case with sleeves. No fancy packaging, your bandwidth and storage should be even less.

    Sorry, you can not charge this much. It will not fly. When there’s services like Crunchyroll and Hulu Plus out there that charge way less for a way better service and no need to download, it all streams in full HD quality and looks great on my HDTV, this type of service is completely ridiculous.

  • okay so I bought The Green Lantern extended yesterday and I got no special features what gives? and don’t tell me the extra 9 minutes are the special features.

  • While I’m excited The Walking Dead Season 2 is going to be available, especially since we don’t have cable at our house anymore…I’m willing to pay for a season pass and you don’t have that option. I’d like to rent them too but that likely isn’t going to happen.

    That’s a pretty big customer oversight…why make it harder to buy things from you? By the episode or season…seems pretty straightforward and a bunch of other streaming services have done it right…it’s possible you can do it too.

    Video Unlimited does make tracking things down a bit easier than in the store, though adding a broader genre search, a “genius”-esque function ala Netflix or iTunes would be appreciated.

  • Why can’t I connect to MUSIC UNLIMITED using my PS3? It never connects! When will this service be available in PUERTO RICO!!??? Plz! Plz!

  • Seems you guys missed Episode 5 of Ancient Aliens. Anyway to get that one added?

  • The Scavenger Hunt appears to be broken I KNOW I have the right movie and there are two variations on that movie but it will not accept the answer from EITHER of those two cuts of the movie so I can not proceed. VERY frustrating especially since there’s no contact information.

  • @thecommonperson, I have the same problem, I entered the last name of every single cast member and still nothing. BROKEN!

  • Yes. Please fix the Scavenger Hunt.

  • I was contacted by SEN through Facebook and they have fixed the scavenger hunt.

  • I finished the scavenger hunt hours ago. It was nice and fun. I knew the movies, but didn’t know the crew. lol I have an old t.v. from 2006, and luckily the scavenger hunt came at the right time because I’ve been looking to buy a new Sony t.v. at the right price for weeks now. This would make me a very happy Sony customer to experience gaming(PS3) in HD for the first time.
