Pandora is good. The only problems that I have with it are the fact that as you vote on songs that you like and don't like, your station morphs. For example, I choose "Big Bad Voodoo Daddy" as my station. Then, as I am voting on songs, after a little while, different genres of music are slipping through. I start hearing classical, for example, rather than the Big Band, brass, swing that I want.

The other problem I have with pandora is the lack of plugins with media players. Because of it's proprietary nature, the API is not released to the public to implement into stand-alone players. I would rather have amaroK or Banshee controlling both my library and some online streams.

Other than that, pandora is a great free resource for some real good music. It's just not for me. 🙂

Don't know if you have tried it already, but http://www.pandora.com/ is pretty good and does most of what you describe without the social part
