horrible and nonsensical "recommendations based on music I DON'T listen to"

Hi,

I've been using Desktop Windows 10 free version to listen to music while at work from just a few weeks ago. I listen ONLY to either classical or jazz music... however, I keep receiving "recommendations" based on music I "supposedly" listen to, which has absolutely nothing to do with the music I actually listen to (just 2 kinds as I said).

I understand they have to make "business" by promoting the artists they have signed, but c'mon! how can you recommend hiphop, pop, etc., and claim it's "based on" classical or jazz music, the only kind of music I actually listen to?

There's no algorith based on my history whatsoever. Just a simple "you're from country X, then you should listen to artists Y,Z"...

Nonsense! I expect more from this overrated platform.

And NO! I will not buy any plan to get rid of ads. Actually, I like recommendations, but allmusic.com style, where they are actually based on the music/artists I review... I've learnt a lot from there... but here no hope...

Regards,
