Predominant.ly is a neat idea: rather than using software algorithms based on music you've liked before, it lets you browse using the cover's colour alone. Above, pink.

You remember those dreary autumn days when you would spend hours in a record store, idly browsing the shelves, escaping the rain. You pulled an album out just like you’d looked at four hundred other albums that day, but this one, you knew, was special. You didn’t know the band, didn’t even know the kind of music they played, but from the cover alone you knew, this was going to be special. You were electrified.
