We could add something like that.

I'd been toying around with how to do a complete rewrite that combined:
- albums related similarly by the people who rated this album
- albums with similar artists
- albums with similar games
This would be used for gathering a list of candidates, and displaying the top 5. Some of these relations need to be fuzzy instead of exact match (like Joe Smith rates this album a 3.5, but another album a 4. That 4 album is also a candidate, but weighted less. Similarly if an album has most of the same artists, but not all, it's a candidate but has a different weighting.)

I'm not sure how slow that would be, or whether the results would be useful or rubbish. We could allow staff to manually insert some subset of the 5 choices.
