Click any linked column-heading to sort a table by that column. Click any album or song for an artist profile, or any voter for a voter profile.

Similarity is calculated for albums, songs and artists based on voter overlap, and for ballots and voters based on album+song+artist overlap. The ballot and voter scores are weighted by album/song/artist popularity.
