The way Soundcloud is using the comment feature is brillant and interesting but well, I find it so hard to use. Comments are displayed all over the song, they are hard to hover and without it you can't read them (it's impossible to read them all in a chronological order without leaving the current page).
So, what is the goal of Soundcloud's comment feature from UX point of view ?
Are they meant to be feedbacks ? Does Soundcloud wants to limit the use of this feature ? I'd like to know the true reasons of this design.
Actually there is a little icon on the bottom right to see all comments but doing so you'll leave the current page and come to something not really user friendly.
Anyway, my question is more about the core feature on songs.
