  • My recommended artists tag cloud

    29. Aug. 2007, 11:43

    Take the 50 top artists in your musical profile, and create a cloud of the similar artists that are not in your top 50. The result is a collection of highly recommended artists for your personal profile. You can generate your own cloud (in BBCode) at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/recommend.php

    My recommendations are
    Arctic Monkeys Ash Audioslave Bloc Party CAKE Camel Coldplay Counting Crows Doves Eels Foo Fighters Franz Ferdinand Genesis IQ Incubus Jet Kaiser Chiefs Kasabian Kings of Leon Led Zeppelin Lenny Kravitz Manic Street Preachers Morrissey Muse Oasis Pendragon Peter Gabriel Pink Floyd Pixies Placebo Porcupine Tree Red Hot Chili Peppers Spock's Beard Stereophonics The Arcade Fire The Bravery The Dandy Warhols The Flaming Lips The Flower Kings The Futureheads The Killers The Raconteurs The Rolling Stones The Smashing Pumpkins The Smiths The Strokes The Verve The Vines Travis Weezer
  • How eclectic is my musical style?

    29. Aug. 2007, 11:42

    Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/eclectic.php

    My eclectic score is currently

    86/100
