I came across this website called 'Pandora' some time ago and am a regular user. As the name suggests, it opens up a whole new world to the user. Pandora is an online radio station that is as customisable as it can get without infringing on copyright laws. It has an online library of thousands of songs in CD quality with each artist's style analysed and documented. The user can specify a radio station based on the style of an artist or song they like and Pandora will create a playlist based on your personal preference. The user can skip tracks and rate them 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down'. Pandora remembers the users preference of music and plays more or less of that artist depending on their rating so each station you create gets better and better. It will also retrieve information about an artist if desired and show a profile and gig dates etc.

Pandora is a funtional site that has a simple user interface. It is a great website for those interested in discovering new music in a specific genre or those who fancy a change of music to their own collection.
