I don’t see why we are seemingly unable to have information overload in regards to metadata. I think there’s always something more I’d like to know about a song when I’m listening to it, but there are no real attempts at presenting the kilobytes of information that could be applied to a song just based on sleeve notes.
Take The Decemberists, for example, maybe I’d like to see other artists similar to them, other projects by members, quoted inspirations, observed inspirations, etc. Or maybe I’m listening to ‘Thriller’ and I’d like to see what else Quincy Jones has produced. A web based approach would have to be used in order to display items I don’t have personally.+]ertyu
