You can listen to any song or artist on HillyDilly with or without a registered account with the website. However, if you choose to skip the registration, you won’t be able to mark songs favorite, make playlists, and follow playlist of others. I will write the review with the assumption that you are registered with the website. So, if you aren’t registered, you won’t find the account-specific options.
