initial upload with the new version is deathly slow. 14.4K modem slow.

This has been relaunched as an iTunes plug-in, sitting in the menu bar with a minimal UI. Which will probably make me more likely to use it regularly.

I want this to work but I only get playlists from the same genre, or same album plus maybe one song totally on random. That's what Party Shuffle does..

I really like it. It's very cool. Here is a list it made for me from Aganjú.

1 Aganjú (Latin Project Remix Edit) Bebel Gilberto
2 Walking Wounded Everything But The Girl
3 Destiny Zero 7
4 World Looking In Morcheeba
5 Playground Love Air
6 Sodade Césaria Évora
7 Bossa Per Due Nicola Conte
8 Everything Is Everything Phoenix
9 Until The Morning Thievery Corporation
10 Feeling Good Nina Simone
11 Bamboleo Gipsy Kings
12 Inside My Mind Groove Armada
13 Breathe Me Sia
14 Interlude Thievery Corporation
15 Notes/Twisted Every Way Original London Cast
16 I'm a Lonely Little Petunia Imogen Heap

This latest version has really made this a useable app. This is awesome, the best reason to keep expanding your music library.

Lovely! Love the instant song recommendations

Really enhances iTunes

Pretty nice.

Oh, and arcitc_pidgeon it's "Silence Kit" ;)

This is the only automated playlist tool I've tried that actually generates playlists that I've continued to listen to after the initial novelty value has worn off. Highly recommended.

Great app - here's a playlist I made from 'Silence Kid' by Pavement:

1. Silence Kid - Pavement
2. Clementine - The Decemberists
3. Mayfly - Belle and Sebastien
4. Free - Cat Power
5. Two Headed Boy - Neutral Milk Hotel
6. So And So.. - Built To Spill
7. Baroque Soul - Broken Social Scene
8. Handshake Drugs - Wilco
9. Palace of The Brine - Pixies
10. To here Knows When - My Bloody Valentine
11. Broken Beads - The New Pornographers
12. Gold Soundz - Pavement
13. Spec Bebop - YoLaTengo
14. Candle - Sonic Youth
15. Rose Parade - Elliott Smith

Can't argue with that - its a pretty good playlist.

Excellent software for unearthing those lost gems lurking in the hidden corners of an overbloated iTunes library.
