2 Jan 2012, 05:27 by maplejetLast Saturday, I discussed the issues with the current similar artist formula...especially Metallica being top 10 in similarity with The Offspring (like what?).
Well, since then, I put my programming skills to work and well, I built a little program to test to see it would work with other artists. Results were noticed on several bands/artists as their similar artists over went a make over. However, it did lead to new problems as I tried testing it out super-mainstream acts including our favorite band...Radiohead.
Rage Against the Machine showed up as a similar artist.
...well, apparently. Radiohead's top 250 similar artists currently are all over the place in random genres. A bigger batch of similar artists would be needed to get the best results, but the question is...is my new formula better. I'm going to show you some examples of artists top 25 similar artists...before, and after. You guys make the decision.
Oh, you don't remember the formula? Very well...time for a quick summary
31 Dec 2008, 20:45 by thecannibalglowHere are my top 20 (because there will be so many) oh-my-gosh-this-album-needs-to-be-out-now albums for 2009! They're in order of my level of "excitedness."
The ones with asterisks are only rumours that I've heard, so they're not confirmed for a new album. Most of them have confirmed "seasons" for their release.
1. Young Cardinals by Alexisonfire
OH MY GOSH, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RELEASE ASAP. That is all. You can do no wrong in my eyes, Alexis. Actually you can: an album full of You Burn Firsts. I need a new album so I can see them live (even though I hopefully will at Warped this summer). And really, I'm not sure why Crisis got all of that bad-talk it did. A Crisis II wouldn't be horrible, actually. I liked the guitar direction they took (eg, Crisis, My God Is A Reasonable Man and We Are The End) because it (the guitars) really stood out to me. Just do what you do, Alexis.
2. Love vs. Money by The-Dream

YES WE CAN is a collage-style music video inspired by a speech delivered by Barack Obama following the 2008 New Hampshire primary, derived from similar union catch cries. The song was released on February 2, 2008 by the Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am on Dipdive.com and also on YouTube under the username 'WeCan08'.
Although the lyrics are entirely quotations from Sen. Obama's concession speech in the New Hampshire primary, the Obama campaign had no involvement in its production. The viral music video, shot in a sparse black-and-white, features Barack Obama's image in collage fashion; the performers (celebrities including musicians, singers and actors) echo his words in a hip-hop call-and-response manner as his voice plays in the background. The song was produced by will.i.am; the music video was directed by Jesse Dylan, the son of singer Bob Dylan. The music video (which Joe Klein of Time later characterized as "brilliant") premiered…
29 Jan 2008, 18:47 by richtaylor521Since I still need to scribe some write-ups for some of the albums on my best of ‘07 list, I figured I’d post this.
Question marks (?) indicate artists that have stated they’re writing new material, but an ‘08 release is not definite; although, at an educated guess- I’d say an ‘08 release is likely.
Bold font are albums I’m looking forward to. Bold font plus red are albums I’m really looking forward to.
If there’s any mistakes please let me know. Feel free to post releases I’ve missed, also.
