Last.fm tool: Level 2 of the musical eclectic test!
The following script takes the 50 top artists in your musical profile from Last.fm, and finds the collection of top 20 similar artists (where the artist itself is the #1 most similar artist) for this top 50. The resulting is a list of artists similar to your preferred artists. As the list is larger (maximum = 1000), your musical preference is more diverse.
As a result, with this test it is harder to get a high score, as compared to the original eclectic test. And because this score goes up to 1000 (and not to confuse it with the orginal "eclectic score"), this test is the "super-eclectic" test!
Please be patient, the script may require up to a minute to process your request because of Last.fm policies. I'm using extensive caching of requests to Last.fm's web services to minimize computation time.

The following is a histogram of computed super-eclectic scores (updated on the hour), so you can compare your score with that of other users. The green line denotes the most representative normal distribution for the histogram (the bash/gnuplot code I wrote to generate this graph is awesome).
