Spotify is still quite limited. To take an example I found recently, it doesn't have Morphine's Like Swimming. The album wasn't a huge success, but still, it's not exactly obscure; it sold 200k copies, made to 67th on Billboard and is owned by UMG.

For me, what often replaces Bittorrent for music is YouTube; still built on copyright infringement, but very unlikely to be blocked or get you in trouble, and it's easier than Spotify (no need for accounts).

I find that Spotify has a lot of mixed albums which are missing tracks due to licensing. I listen to electronic music and a large number of mixed albums are practically useless because of this.
