“Today, The Echo Nest, a music intelligence company powering advanced digital music applications, announced it has solved the problem of music discovery – helping music fans everywhere sort through millions of artists to find the ones they (should) love.
The Echo Nest’s new Goodness API applies the company’s advanced web crawling, language processing and audio analysis platform to help music fans everywhere separate music worth listening to from music that should be avoided.
With the Goodness API, developers can query the Echo Nest platform with an artist name. For any artist, the Echo Nest’s Musical Brain returns a numerical value, indicating the overall Goodness of the artist.”
