Music is great. Music is manifold. Everyone has his own taste of music. What is loved by one might be refused by the next.
These different preferences make it pretty difficult to find new great music. The spectrum is – fortunately – large, but finding the music that appeals to you personally turns out to be like the search for the needle in the haystack.
Several internet services have lined up to help easing your search – time to give you an overview of the most important services of their kind.
Gnoosic – Gnod’s World of Music
„Even if you don’t know what you are looking for – gnod will find it.“
Gnod principle is simple: Tell it three of your favorite artists. It then recommends more artists that you might like as well.
Each of those recommendations you can rate: You like it, you don’t, or you don’t know it yet.
These ratings feed Gnod’s database. When you entered the first three artists, Gnod compared it to the datasets of other users, found the ones who liked the same artists and recommended more items from their dataset to you.
Of all systems presented in this article, Gnod is the easiest to use. There is no registration and no special software. You just fill three fields in a web form and off you go. No other service is that simple and quick-starting.
Despite the simpleness, the results aren’t bad. The downside of the simpleness is that you can’t start listening to your recommendations right away. You have to find sources for the music by yourself.
