I was having discussion about how great Roon was with similar artist compared to Tidal itself when someone posted the following.
Falloch has 1 on Roon, 3 on Tidal.
Paysage D’Hiver has 0 on Roon, 4 on Tidal
Tribulation has 0 on Roon, 5 on Tidal
Portal has 0 on Roon, 2 on Tidal
For relative unknowns, Roon has absolutely nothing.
I checked these for myself and found it’s accurate. Not only did I think Roon get’s it data from last.fm but I see that Tidal says that’s where it gets it data. How come Tidal would have more info on these artists?
For a band like R.E.M. is found over 100 similar, followed, influenced combined in Roon and only 10 total similar in Tidal. So in that case, Roon is amazing. But in the examples above, I’m disappointed to find out that’s true.
