To do this yourself, use your top 20 artists, and look at the eight highest artists on their similar artists. If any of them repeat, do not count the second entry and every entry after that. If any similar artists are also in your top 20, don not count them either. If any entries are the same artist but with a different name, don't include this similar artist, pick the next one down. For example, in Michael Jackson's similar artists both 'The Jackson 5' and 'The Jacksons' are included, so you would ignore the 'The Jacksons' and pick the artist below them in the similar artist list. It sounds complicated, but it's easy once you get started. Once you have your list, count up every first entry of an artist. Your final socre will be out of 160, so the highest score you can get is 160, which indicates extreme variety. If you want, you can just do it for the top 10, in which case a score of 80 represents extreme variety.
Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference.

I've always enjoyed listening to good soundtrack music, be it a movie score or music for computer games. So when I finally got my home studio working, my first interest was to find out, what were the possibilities of composing orchestral soundtracks on home PC. Luckily for me, nowadays there are many good software samplers and sound libraries with which it is possible to create quite nice sounding soundscapes. And so I got to work. You can find all of the material I've worked on, freely available, on my Celestial Aeon Project project homepage (it carried name Essence until 9.6. 2006, which is why the tag info is still behind):
