Interesting little music recommendation engine. Seems similar to a thing I was thinking about building years ago, only they went ahead and actually built it, and probably better than I could have. :)

Although it seems to have gotten pretty popular in the last few days and is starting to get filled with garbage data (misspellings, people recommending songs instead of bands, etc.) and there is no active means of telling the admins about problems so I wonder if they've hit a huge surge of popularity.

Interesting idea. Not sure if the dataset is too small or too polluted or what but I put in three bands I like and it fed me 7 bands I'd never heard of and 3 that I don't like. I checked a few of the ones I'd never heard of and none of them made me go "wow".
