When we rolled out Pandora 2.1 a couple of weeks ago we talked about our efforts to polish up the “little things” in the user interface. Tonight we rolled out one additional tiny little improvement that we hope you’ll like.
Starting tonight each time you hear a song you’ll be able to click on the song title (in the song “slide,” above the album art) which will take you to a page devoted to just that song. You’ll then be able to listen to a sample of the song, see what album it’s from (lots of you have asked specifically for that) and send the URL on to your friends that might like the song. Ok, so it’s a very small thing, but we hope you like it. More to come. Stay tuned!

    Hi Sharon, The approach we take to playlist construction is based on what we call "music analysis". Our team of music-analysts listen to music one song at a time and document the underlying musical characteristics for each song. Right now we analyze Jazz, Rock, Country, Hip Hop, Dance, and Electronica music. We're also hard at work on Latin music. We love classical music too, and have designed an approach for capturing the unique features of world music -- you can imagine that the instruments, playing style, harmonics, and construction are different enough that a different vocabulary of attributes is required. We'll be working our way through a catalog of classical music, but it is a time consuming process. It will take us a while to get to "critical mass," but we will get there. Tom CTO @ Pandora

    I just arrived in pandoraland a couple of weeks ago, I am now completely obsessed. I actually look forward to going to work (how is that possible). I used to work in a music store and my life was constantly filled with new music over the last ten years I moved to suburbia, took a job in corporate America, and bought a car based on gas milage - I lost myself. Thanks to you I am inspired and my soul feels full of music. Thank you
