I recognize the AMG isn't anywhere NEAR being primarily focused on, or even really interested in, classical music, but really, the results your engine generates when I hit "classical" or "chamber" or "opera" are purely ridiculous. In every classical genre, I get reams and reams of unserious crossover artists - Andrea Bocelli, Anthony Braxton, Sting, - and of course I'm thinking, this isn't serious. When I hit the "opera" toggle, I knew what would be first up: "Tommy," naturally. This absolutely sucks. I didn't even bother to test drive your "Jazz" genre for fear that it would be, as it certainly must, all Kenny G., Boney James, and Windham Hill. Augh. If this is actually a test drive of your Beta, I fear you've failed.

I hear you.
We're actively working on better ways to surface the Classical data we've got in ways that make sense.

All I can ask is to hang in there and see where we are in the upcoming months before our official launch.

Thanks for the feedback.

A fast, encouraging response. Thank you, Zac. (And the jazz genre didn't turn out as I feared. Good leads, solid stand-bys, etc. That piece seems to be working passably well, although it doesn't seem - on a very fast first blush - to push a sufficient number of new, very promising players to the fore.)
