Yes, I have to say I have mixed feelings about all the new modes. It seems that none of the options operate like the original Pandora algorithm, i.e., playing *songs* that are similar - first the station seed, and then the thumbed up ones on the station - regardless of the artist. I guess the closest now seems to be Discovery mode, *but* it only plays "artists you don't usually hear on this station", not songs similar to what's on the station. Maybe you should split it into two modes: discover similar songs and discover new artists. Anyway, I want the old algorithm back. I discovered a lot of good music that way, and the new algorithms seem more like dumbed down versions of the old algorithm. And, I suspect, the recent design choices have more to do with how much money Pandora makes than they do with satisfying the Pandora user.
