eMusic recommends

eMusic has a new recommendation engine which uses information from past purchases to post items on the front page you might like to download.

So far I'm mostly impressed. Some of the albums recommended I either am already planning to pick up or already have. Really impressive is that it has correctly been surmised that I am interested in rockabilly when I have downloaded very little from that genre so far.

Less impressive is that, apparently based on my download of a Twisted Sister Christmas album, 80s hair metal is pretty consistantly recommended. Nothing's perfect I guess ...
