Since a few months, there are two bands that start the radio most of the time. One is Mors Principium Est when I play an album that's anything close to Melodic (Death) Metal, and the other is Draconian when I play any kind of Doom / Atmospheric Metal, always a track from their last album.
I love these two bands, and their last albums are great, but a little variety would be nice here! Spotify is about to ruin those album to me by always pushing them after I end pretty much any album.
It would be great to be able to tweak the "similarity" index of radios, to avoid always listening to the same 5-10 similar bands, but rather explore further away from the original album.
Thanks for reaching out.
Keep in mind that the song in the Radios are based on a variety of factors, such as artists name/genre, your personal likes, and the music libraries of users with similar tastes. That's why it might take a while for the list to get filled with more songs that haven't come up on your radar yet. You can help the algorithm by expanding your library with new liked songs and albums or liking additional artists. That would speed up the process.
In the meantime, it's a good idea to add your support for these Ideas:

Ok that's it I'm done with spotify radios, they are now ridiculous.
It just started a radio on an album with ... the last track of that same album. Playing the same track twice in a row. That's not AI anymore, that's stupid algorithms.
Thanks for your posts.
We understand your frustration as a long time user.
The next best step in this situation would be to vote on the Ideas that @Mihail has linked to. The developers are always trying to improve the user experience of the app and they do their best to resolve issues like this. However algorithm changes and development take time.
Hope this helps.
