The website is not only professional, but also covers current music content as well as a variety of topics in American music genres and Latin music genres.  From pop music, rhythm and blues, hip hop, electronica and dance, and radio songs users have a variety of music to choose from.

Despite the web site's resourcefulness, there were several drawbacks. One of the drawbacks is that the Latin music content cannot be viewable in Spanish. Users, who want to view the information in Spanish language, will not have that luxury and those learning the English language, may not capture the entire message or picture in the Latin music sections. The other downside is that there is little content on music such as reggae and fusion.
