If someday, we all go to prison for downloading music, I hope they separate us by genres. Automatic music classification is an area of research that has been receiving a great deal of attention lately. With the breadth of artists and songs being released in current times, it has become increasingly difficult to manually classify music genres. There are very rarely precise, clear, and consistent heuristics delineating the musical qualities and characteristics of each genre. The task of defining and implementing measures of musical similarity can be extremely challenging, especially for a human.
