So that is a Score of 24 Correctly Predicted Results from 83 Categories

And of course given the very diverse range of music, available I could wonder as to how I can improve future results.

In truth the Obvious is that I FAILED to GROUP CLUSTER results, typically in several categories, you will see a SHIFT toward some given individual within a particular audience demographic or target group.

So My results I typically went for a start again process for each and every choice and selection, within each category and so on, which in theory is a good best practice.

Though it can also be a good practice when you can see a particular Group or Singer STANDING OUT within a CATEGORY rating to back them across there given GENRE, because that is what Society and Herding and so on CAUSES, the one choice justifies the next until a BIAS can clearly be seen within a demographic.

This KNOWLEDGE can be used from a Neutral position in some quite interesting ways.
