I don't know if the station music-finding ability has drastically declined or if I never really used it this way before, but I am finding myself very disappointed with the radio stations lately. I made a station based on Billy Boyd's "The Last Goodbye" but I guess Pandora just looks at the album because all it plays is cinematic music like the rest of the hobbit soundtracks and hanz Zimmer? It completely ignores the song and just goes by artist and album as far as I can tell? I tried to make a station from some of the heavier and intense songs from the Darktide soundtrack and I get the soft, lullaby themes from the gentle parts of the fellowship of the ring. So it's not even looking for similar albums and just saying "it's a soundtrack, right?" I'm getting growling metal on an instrumental folk music station because I added a single song from that band that was instrumental folk music for "added variety" And I notice that Pandora plugs songs I liked on completely different stations just because obviously if I liked it on my metal station, I'd love it in a sea shanty station, and who doesn't need a little lindsay Stirling in every single station I make? I have to thumb down a out 50 songs to get a single one that is even remotely related if the song is unusual for the artist and I'm starting to lose interest in fighting Pandora over this. Their "smart" radio was the main difference between them and Spotify, but I am just not seeing it anymore. Am I missing something?
