I Love Spotify, But...

But sometimes it does some Strange Things.

Wasn't sure what I was in the mood to listen to today, so I glanced down at the "Artists you may like" box that popped up. It offers up a half-dozen artists I've never heard of (no bad thing) along with their genre tags. This is where it gets odd.

Why does spotify think that I might like Common, described as "midwest, hardcore rap"? Or Jurassic 5, who apparently are leading lights in "Turntablism"? Is this what I get for queuing up Lady Gaga a few times? Has it completely ignored the time I've spent listening to their "Prog Rock" channels?!

(ok, I clicked on one and actually Jurassic 5 is quite listenable-to....)
