    The Obscurometer

    What is The Obscurometer?

    Simply put, it's a tool to measure just how obscure the music you listen to is. Are you a Top 40 fan, or an indie rock individualist? Simply enter your last.fm username, and The Obscurometer will calculate both how obscure your musical tastes are as compared to other people, and how obscure your favorite artists are. It's simple, easy, and fun; so what are you waiting for?

    How does it work?

    The Obscurometer uses data gathered from last.fm, runs it through some mathematical algorithms, and out comes your obscurity rating.



    Your musical tastes are more obscure
    than 92.7% of all users


    (This is just to have fun with, don't take it personal if your not that obscure)

    But it only rates your top artists,

    surely obscurity is probably changing your tastes/weekly/daily seeking new obscure bands.

    This glorifies plays, and top 40 most obscure bands.

    Bollocks. It's all because of Korn and Disturbed.

    Yeah, okay. Obscure to what exactly? I don't even get it. Kinda like that rating bar that everyone has on their profile (and yeah I jumped on the bandwagon and got one too just for the hell of it).

  • I personally find these sorts of things fun. Those who dislike: do you really think people use these as elitist symbols? ... am I odd that this didn't occur to me when I put it on my profile?

    There were a few surprises in the data of mine. Mainly I was surprised The Breath of Life, sToa and The Machine in the Garden weren't more popular. The rest was more or less as popular as I expected it to be. I think my result is artificially high because I have the Flowing Tears listed twice because of their first name [Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers]. I am pretty sure most people use the shorter name on everything including their really old releases. Kinda like the big debate as to whether or not it is accurate tagging to use "UK" at times for The Mission [UK] depending on the release.

    I hate all of these meter's. There is only 1 I quite like and think it's relatively accurate.

    I guess you don't agree

    I'm sensing DaddyPobbin's careometer is on the low side...

    The secret forum last.fm doesn't want you to know about.

  • 27.1%. It said I was more obscure that 16% of Last.fm users.
