  • And now there's a super-eclectic test.

    Set 4 2011, 15h59

    I get 824/1000, which is in the top 2% for eclecticism. Too bad this isn't worth money! ;^)~

    Take your top 50 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 20 similar artists (where the artist itself is the #1 most similar). The resulting number of unique artists is your super-eclectic score. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/supereclectic.php

    My super-eclectic score is currently

    824/1000


    The most similar artists for my profile are Wayne Shorter (7), Sonny Rollins (6), Lee Morgan (6), Dexter Gordon (5), Bud Powell (5), Hank Mobley (4), Thelonious Monk (4), Miles Davis (4), Freddie Hubbard (4), Duke Ellington (4)
  • I guess I could top it: 100/100!

    Set 4 2011, 15h55

    Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference.
