App Will Tell You How Bad Your Spotify Music Is
We all like to think we have incredible taste in music, but as the old saying goes, one man's omlette is another man's t*rd sandwich.
And a new app will tell you just what it thinks of yours by going through your Spotify playlists and seeing which artists you are listening to relentlessly.
'How Bad is Your Spotify' trawls through your musical habits to find out what you have been listening to too much, and warning you about the artists you are 'worryingly' fixated on.
So, for example, if it thinks you listen to far too much Taylor Swift, it might call your music taste 'folklore-evermore-dumbledore-witch-pop-eyeliner-and-screaming-cottagecore bad'.
Or if you prefer something on the more mellow side, edging on dark, such as Phoebe Bridgers, you might get something like 'are you ok?'.
Which seems fair, I guess.
Since the AI app was launched, music lovers the world over have been sharing their pretty scathing reviews.

Sharing a photo of their results, one user said: "How bad is your Spotify? Sweet little message at the end, but if anyone came at me for my love of Childish Gambino as hard as this boy did, you won't see the light of day."
Another commented: "I did that AI How Bad is Your Spotify thing. It thinks I listen to American Music Club and The Wedding Present to uncomfortable extent. Yep ;)."
A third laughed: "I hate the how bad is your Spotify A.I with a burning passion I didn't need to be bullied like this.
"Anyways thanks to the creators for a laugh I guess."
While yet another chimed in: "Did the 'how bad is your Spotify thing' and I'm now ready to fist fight a computer."
In order to have your music taste destroyed just in time for Christmas Day, as if you needed another reason to reach for a tinnie or 12 this year, you need to log onto your Spotify account through The Pudding website.
According to reports, it will only scan through your playlists, but it's unclear as to whether it is also datamining for other purposes.
