The Canadian singer-songwriter is pulling his music from subscription-based librairies, claiming poor sound quality.

Just a few days after fellow musician Prince decided to remove his music from streaming services, Neil Young has decided to take the same steps, based on his poor opinion of the current audio quality.

In a post on his Facebook page, Young explains "Streaming is the worst audio in history.... All my music, my life's work, is what I am preserving the way I want it to be. It's already started. My music is being removed from all streaming services. It's not good enough to sell or rent. Make streaming sound good and I will be back."

This is far from the first time that Young has complained about the quality of music online, developing Pono, a music download service, as a result.
