I have always been interested in finding music that I would probably like. Lately I have been using the recommendations offered by Amazon and I have entered a lot of information. It was however not the first time I did that (remember Firefly?). I really want to have a solution that is based on my personal library. MusicMobs seems to offer this to me. I can upload an iTunes XML-file and no extra editing needed. And most of my interesting music is now on my iPod, although it is getting a bit to small now. My iPod-list is sorted on the number of plays and does include songs I bought at the iTMS.
The nest step on MusicMobs is to find similar users (do I want to find them?) and to get recommendations (albums). Clicking on an Album-name starts a search in the iTMS, so I can check out the songs. I like that feature, but then the album must be available in iTMS. Matching seems to be based on people with the same albums in their list. Do people with a single album in common interest me? I think this feature has to improve.
I seem to get interesting suggestions, so I will use the service for a while. I guess it needs more users before it becomes even better.
