I've noticed over time weather I thumbs up or down songs that many of the differing stations all start to sound alike. I love a hugely wide verity of music, but when I don't like something I don't like it. So if I'm in the mood for a change of pace switching to another station is supposed to be just that, a different experience. But Pandora's algorithm creates an idea what it thinks I want no matter what station I am on. Journey should be different from Billy Joel Foreigner should be different from Phil Collins Fleetwood Mac should be different from Men at work but I end up with the situation of listening to the same thing over and over again. Even AC/DC eventually started to sound like the others. Try listening to what is the Viking station and you get nothing but English sailor shanties. When do you draw a line and say thumbs up algorithm can't change everything to be identical? Just because someone else doesn't know the difference between music genre doesn't mean I want to listen to the same thing they like.

I'm tired of hearing remixes of songs I expect a certain sound from. The original is what I grew up with and it might not be important to the new generations but to those who heard these brand new on the radio growing up to hear the change to what we perceived as perfect as is, just leaves a bad listening experience. So I skip or just shut off the app. And whats with all the live version songs?! If I feel like a live version I want to listen to an entire album that I am in the mood for. Not piece meal songs shuffling through the application. Live **ahem** on Pandora.
