Genre Matching Is NOT Accurate


Genre Matching Is NOT Accurate


If I play Frank Sinatra Radio I would expect to hear similar artist within this genre.  However, I hear The Police "Roxanne" etc.  What gives?  Rhapsody music service is just as bad.  I would love for Spotify to correct this on all the genres they provide.

Agree! Have listened to several radio stations and there is alot of misstagging!


Sorry to hear about this guys. Does using the Thumbs Up/Down not help improve the matches at all?

I think the content filtering problem is rooted in the econest algoritm in correlation with the Spotify API, because echonest is very large, and much content is not available on Spotify that is listed there, much is sorted out, and the selection thus become very repetitive becuase the matching becoem fuzzy.
