Anyone else got this? If so, add me up!

I think quite often it's not an accurate representation of a person's musical taste... but hey, it's good fun anyway! And it works half well for someone like me who listens to all music through the computer.

hmm, that's quite interesting. I don't think i'll sign up though, I'm not really bothered what other people think of my music tastes. What are the benefits of signin up?

the point of it is that the website studies your musical tastes and recommends artists and songs to you, which you can then listen to on the app's radio

but really, I just use it for the fun of it. not to everyone's tastes though, I know Wink

I don't even know why I like it as much as I do, but I think it's the whole idea of being able to see how much I listen to a band or a song without having to figure out the statistics on my own. I can be found here.

Yeah that's it! I personally like to keep tabs on how biased I am... It reminds me, for instance, that I'm listening to Genesis's whatever for the umpteenth time when I've got several new albums to be giving a chance. It give me discipline Wink

added... I'm 10000_Spoons (not that I'm an Alanis fan)

My listening profile is highly inaccurate though, as it doesn't take into account what I listen to on my ipod (mostly Elbow) and I haven't bothered to download the winamp plugin on my new laptop yet Rolling Eyes

I was wondering why 10000 Spoons sounded so familiar to me until I thought about it and realized that I have your 'My Favourite Elbows' mash-up. Quite good, man.

Thanks! I also did one with "Strangeways to Holcombe Hill" and Dizzee Rascal...

and I discovered this by Hi-brid a second ago: Grounds for Divorce vs Two Tribes!

I think The Filter, which is Peter Gabriel's project, does a similar thing.

I love it because I've started to listen to quite a few new artists based on recommendations it gives you according to what pops up on your profile. It's really nifty and becomes somewhat addictive after a while.

I'm addicted to last.fm too - I've discovered loads of wonderful new music since being a member, though more from direct recommendations by last.fm friends browsing sites of "fans" of artists I like, than from the official site's recommendations.

Should we make a last.fm group for this messageboard? It would be interesting to see what the weekly charts would look like.
