iTunes’ Genius Isn’t So Dumb Anymore

A few weeks ago, I reported that iTunes’ Genius was getting dumber. Genius wasn’t finding recommendations for a lot of well-known music: things like Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run, the Grateful Dead’s American Beauty, The Door’s L. A. Woman, and many others, including songs by Talking Heads, the Rolling Stores and other well-known bands.

Well, Apple’s looked into this and it seems fixed. I tried all the songs I had flagged, and they all give me Genius recommendations.


If you still see songs where there are no Genius recommendations – not obscure music, but songs well enough known that Genius should be able to make suggestions – drop a comment below.
