The area Classical/Band Music/Significant Songs - needs some debugging. Looks like the "Band Music" tag has also been used in your database to refer to music made by a pop/rock in addition to the definition you use in the classical band music section (wind band/marching band/brass band/etc). Thus we end up with Pink Floyd (Vera, in a stretch, might be a real match) , Inira, Green Day, Wolves in the Throne Room and other pop/rock groups showing up in the suggested songs listing.

I am glad to see you moving forward with this change at allmusic. I am looking forward to Classical Music generally getting a bit more energy and attention.

  • not terribly worried but see tagging as a possible problem area.

Yes. "Significant Songs" for Classical is an area that still needs attention on our end.

OK, noted. I do use the classical data on AM regularly and do understand the additional layers of complexity in presenting associated data. Thanks for keeping it in mind and growing your capabilities in this area.
