Feature Request: Create Station based on criteria other than track/artist

I am a musician; However, I am not a performer (not anymore!). As such, (If I knew in college what I know now, I'd be a theory teacher! Need a 'justbelowminorinmusic' ex-prog rock performer analysist!?) I would like to be able to build a playlist from music qualities/identifying features. Last I knew, there were just over 400 evaluation points! I'd love to build stations from these music analysis criteria (instead of songs). Can it be done? At least in a limited way? Maybe, lyrical content; M,m tone; pinpoint genre qualities; instrumentaion; technicality... and so on.

@Muse, I just made a similar suggestion.  (To be fair, I didn’t see this particular board, so my request was moved here.)  Being able to make a channel based on, for example, “folk roots” or “angry lyrics” or “madrigal style”, or some other criteria or criteria combination would be fantastic!

To the same (or opposite) point, when I first started with Pandora I thought I would be able to start a station that included Pandora's entire library. Then, as I used my thumbs up and thumbs down, the station would evolve towards my interests.

I thought the same thing. I was hoping that my thumbs up and down would turn into a station, gathering more of the same, instead of a playlist. I keep having to thumb up a song depending on what station I have playing. I'd really like to just to have 1 station. Isn't that how it used to be (way back when)??

Disregard my comment, just found the Thumbprint Radio. Sheesh that was buried.
