    How's it working out for you?

    Mine's suggesting the same 4 artists no matter what I'm basing it on for my genius playlist thingies.

    Mine is working pretty good. I think you have to make sure that your iTunes is really organized, the songs that you didnt buy from iTunes might have to match the song information that iTunes has exactly.

    Some of my songs dont have any Genius information yet, i would guess we just have to wait for more people to start using it.

    It's working really well for me. I'm actually quite happy with the Genius feature, I had been getting a little bored with my music

    Totally agree. It has brought new life to my music collection (5k songs or so). I really like it. Quick and easy and gets the tunes going without much thought.

    Doesn't work that great here. I have a very large library (over 60 days of music) and it wants to group tracks that have no business being grouped. It wants to group all the electronic artists together, from Massive Attack to Tiesto, which is not very genius. Maybe it just doesn't like electronic music, since Apples own music store genres for electronic music are horrible.

    Ehh it's working okay for me. Doesn't really match much of my music that I would be interested in. I use last.fm to find other artists like the ones I listen to. Just personal preference I guess.

    I never really put me down to try it out oO first thing it did for me was making a playlist with ALL my songs in it, so I skip Genius for now =)
