Tidal recommendations or finding new music


Recommended Posts

As an experiment I went through setting up a new tidal account and I chose the artists that I like, etc. I have played the tracks that I enjoy. Watching what Tidal recommends for me I am disappointed. There is almost nothing in the recommendations that I have enjoyed. 
 

The reason I setup a new account to test this out is that I was thinking that maybe on my old account I had listened to enough of something that that wasn't my cup of tea and thus I was getting recommendations that weren't all that great. 
 

I want to find new music and I was hoping that Tidal algorithms would be helpful. They are not for me, not  yet.

 

How have you found Tidal recommendations? How do you go about finding new music on Tidal? Any tips and tricks?

Yeah.  Roon integrates your music library with Tidal.  Play a song you like and Roon tees up similar music from your library and Tidal.  I’ve found so much music I like using Roon.

I use Spotify to discover new music and then add to Tidal play lists.

Lol. I am currently doing that. It's not ideal but it's cheaper than Roon.

If Spotify offered better stream quality it would be game over for tidal. 

Really is a good algorithm, and solid app.  Not to mention all my mates are on it, and i cant share my play lists with them. lol.

In my experience (and some millions of other users possibly) nothing comes close to how good Spotify's recommendations algorithms are. Scary good and I haven't found any other service that's come close. I use Tidal (with and without Roon), Apple Music and Spotify.

 

I keep Apple Music expecting it one day to match and then pass Spotify to features. Still hasn't happened yet for me.

 

I keep Tidal for better sound quality.

 

I'm a Roon lifetime member, mainly for the nicest way to browse my FLAC collection if I can't find it on the streaming services. But most of my listening is music streaming these days.

Interesting that some don’t like Roon... I will say that there are several different ways to get new music on Roon.  “Roon Radio” is the similar music Roon tees up automatically after an album finishes and is brilliant.  Roon recommended music is not as good.

 

Edit: the Roon Radio algorithm is also user programmable.  If it tees up something you don’t like, and you skip the song, it asks you why you skipped and uses this to improve the music it finds for you.

One of the reasons I dislike Roon Radio is that no matter how many times I skip Bruce Springsteen, he appears over and over again in every single Roon Radio, no matter what the album was that just finished. Drives me nuts 😀

Fair enough.  I have never experienced that issue.  Did u try blocking the artist?

I didn't know you could block an artist - how do you do that?

All I do is thumbs down every time

Search the artist you want to block.  On the top of artist page is a "hollow" heart icon.  Click it once and it fills in (this "likes" that artist). Click a second time and the icon turns into a "block" icon.  Leave it on that and it should block your Bruce issue.
