Pandora Vs. Last.fm: Agalloch

It's battle of the music streaming services! On one side we have Pandora, the popular service that's free with limitations, and bases its music recommendations on a database of song attributes known as the Music Genome Project. On the other, Last.fm, the older, free-er system that utilizes a human-powered social ranking method to recommend tracks. Which will provide better results for an Agalloch station? You decide.
1 Pandora's
10 Picks
2 Erik Wollo
Guitar Nova


Interesting first pick from this Norwegian composer/guitarist, but Pandora must be doing something right, as an Agalloch fan I enjoyed this and gave it a thumbs up.
3Amorphis
Eclipse


Not really seeing it... Amorphis has a much less BM/Folk sound, particularly on Eclipse which features a dose of middle-eastern influences you'd never hear on an Agalloch album.
4 Hammerfall
Masterpieces


Couldn't find this album on SM, maybe it's a compilation. The track wasn't too terrible, but not exactly reminiscent of Agalloch either.
5Opeth
Still Life


Pandora makes an unhealthy habit of saturating my Agalloch station with Opeth. I love both bands, but they have very little in common if you ask me.
6Daylight Dies
Dismantling Devotion


Another popular pairing from Pandora... I'm a fan of Daylight Dies and would more or less consider the recommendation to be valid given the overall atmosphere of certain tracks.
7Mourning Beloveth
A Disease For The Ages


Didn't really care for this one.
8Dissection
Storm Of The Light's Bane


Enjoyed it, thumbed it up, I think at this point I stopped paying attention to how similar the bands were and just considered whether or not the band sucked.
9Flametal
The Elder


Pretty much some of the most badass, well, flamenco-metal out there, I can dig.
10Novembers Doom
The Novella Reservoir


Never got into this band. Should I?
11 Spokane
Able Bodies


Hmmm...
12 Last FM's
Picks
13In The Woods...
Strange In Stereo


They could have recommended a better album, but okay.
14Wyrd
Huldrafolk


Meh
15Swallow The Sun
New Moon


Meh
16Novembers Doom
The Pale Haunt Departure


It's 4 degrees of separation!
17Novembre
Classica


Love this album, but similar to Agalloch? Not quite.
18Daylight Dies
Dismantling Devotion


Both services recommended this album within 10 skips.
19Ulver
Perdition City


Agalloch, similar to 99% of music out there, has very little in common with Ulver.
20Ahab
Call Of The Wretched Sea


Hmm...
21Negura Bunget
Om


Sure, why not.
22Uaral
Lamentos A Poema Muerto


I thought I had struck gold until cookie monster started mournfully croaking out vocals. What a shame, the music is glorious.
