I'm getting more and more bored of Spotify. I feel like i've been hearing the same songs of my favorite artists in the daily mixes.
I guess Spotify is more targeted towards people who listen to pop music. Pop music is more a market than an actual art. Composer and singers will producs a new album every year with 2-3 hit songs that will be played on radios 4 times a day and fill up the rest with "mediocerer" stuff because they have to.
Well, fair enough, if a majority of listeners are happy with that, great for them. But i don't listen to pop music, i like heavy metal, jazz, blues, classical... And heavy metal albums are not produced to aim generalist radios. They usually are a whole experiences, with of course one of two songs that will be more of a hit, but rarely contain forgettable tracks. And the rest of those tracks never seem to make it into the daily mix.
So i tought i'd fix it by liking more songs of my favorite albums... but you just can't, you can only like (or dislike) tracks that make it into thoses mixes. So my question is, are you guys high or something like that? What kind of people in their right mind wouldn't allow users to like whatever tracks they like to be able to hear them more often and not rely on an algorithm that will dictate what they should be listening to?
Also, there used to be a great feature that displayed new albums that i might like on the discovery screen, but one day it just disapeard. Months later it came up again but was killed again a few days later.
I thinking more and more about canceling my subsciption and look at what other platforms are proposing. I know that Spotify doesn't actually make a lot of money and i'm not sure that pissing of their users is the way to go to fix that.
