I suspect a problem here.  I may not be as consistent as I should be in imprinting genre on these files.  Also, when I rip a disc I may just leave the default genre pulled from one of four databases. This genre may actually be multiple genres such as "IDM Ambient Electronic" or a variation such as "IDM Ambient Electronica".  Also if I purchased files from Boomkat, their genres are distinctly unusual such as "Home listening" or "Grime" or "Broken Beats" to name just a few.

I just attempted to look at the list of genres and the server software stalled/choked.  LOL.

A piece of software that runs on my iPad is able to parse all the genres.

Here's a list of pseudo-genres that are populating the part of the "S" genre database:

skweee
Soul, Funk, House
Soul, Hose, Funk
Soundsc
Soundtrack/Filmmusik
Space breaks/electro
Space italo
Sports themes
Synthie-Pop
Synthpop
Synthwave/Electro

...and this is just a few of the "S" listings.  Admittedly it's a bit of a mess :)

I seldom look for music by genre but if I did I would be sure to go for "skweee" everytime ;)

[Skweee is a musical style, with origin in Sweden and Finland. Skweee combines simple synth leads and basslines with funk, r'n'b or soul-like rhythms, overall rendering a stripped-down funky sound. The tracks are mostly entirely instrumental, though there are exceptions. The name Skweee was coined by Daniel Savio, one of the originators of the emerging sound. The name refers to the use of vintage synthesizers in the production process, where the aim is to "squeeze out" the most interesting sounds possible. [1][2][3]]

So ambient skweee is a distinct possibility.....

Jim, you failed to discover any new genres this week. ;)

Notice the genre number reduction.  Squeezebox released a completely new server which apparently recognizes less genres in my database.  Additionally the total play time is reduced which makes sense if you follow the numbers in my post above.

I think the file and album numbers are the most accurate.
