Last.fm tool: Generate your recommended artists tag cloud

Check out my new music recommendation service at http://music.biograph.be

p>The following script takes the 50 top artists in your musical profile from Last.fm, and creates a cloud of the similar artists that are not in your top 50. The result is a "tag cloud" like description of highly recommended artists.

Based on top 50 artists

Please be patient, the script may require up to a full minute to process your request. The script needs to download and analyze your profile and your top 50 artists. Last.fm policy states that we can only make 1 request per second, and the script's worst case scenario requires 51 requests. Caching is used to lower the load on user (cache = 10 minutes) and artist (cache = 1 week) database requests.

Also, make sure to check out my scripts to generate your personal musical tag cloud and compare your profile with that of other users.
