Several years ago, there was a time when I seeded to the most popular first. Pandora then focused on the most popular artists first, and hardly anything else. I wanted to hear other stuff though, so I scavenged the web for lesser known bands that I would like for Pandora to give equal treament to. I put them there because I wanted to hear them. Duh! Now, years later, know this, if I wanted to still keep hearing the popular stuff, good or not so good, why else would I add seeds of less popular bands? It is as if Pandora is trying to tell me what is the best when I already know what I like. By Pandora skipping over play of the less popular bands, I get the same old same old. Please stop! How can I tell Pandora I don't want the same old same old. Maybe let an occasional B-side of the popular bands in, because I want the less populars and rarities. I want to hear who the music industry has put on the bottom of the barrel, and continues to do so. I put them as seeds because I want to hear the lesser knowns. I can evaluate them myself.
