Not that long ago there was a talk that Metal fans are most loyal and are the ones that buy the most records. On Spotify too, if I'm not mistaken. I'd love that to be reflected in Main/Menu screens - tailored to specific range of taste (derrived from likes, additions to My Music, or simply by tags from local user library and/or last.fm).
You see - Metalheads in general aren't interested in pretty much all that appears on the Home/Browse screens. An option to tailor this to ones taste would be super-awesome. Because, when I go to New Releases, I would love to see:
- New releases from artists in My Music;
- New releases from artists I liked in Radio;
- New releases from artists in my Local Files.
This. And only this. No releases from Gaga, Bieber, Shakira and other cringe-inducing names of Pop. And this is the mentality of every-**bleep** metalhead I've ever met : ) With some exceptions. Because there's always that one "wide-range-taste" individual popping up here and there.
That would massively improve the functionality of New Releases and Radio in general. Now it functions as an attempt at ad targeting. Broken and useless for users of specific tastes - that have to fight for good suggestions. And you already have something that's working like that - Discover.
So, to fine-tune this woul be super.
And to exclude specific tags/artists from popping-up in Radio would be cool too. Yes, I'm into Black Metal and Behemoth. And no - I don't like Country. Not even because it's the side-project of the frontman of Black/Death Metal band Behemoth. There shouldn't be anything near Country in such a Radio : )
