[TEXT] MARD: Multimodal Album Reviews Dataset
MARD contains texts and accompanying metadata originally obtained from a much larger dataset of Amazon customer reviews, which have been enriched with music metadata from MusicBrainz, and audio descriptors from AcousticBrainz. MARD amounts to a total of 65,566 albums and 263,525 customer reviews. A breakdown of the number of albums per genre is provided here:
|Dance & Electronic||5,106||899||367|
|Rap & Hip-Hop||1,679||768||207|
A subset of the dataset was created for genre classification experiments. It contains 100 albums by genre from different artists, from 13 different genres. All the albums have been mapped to MusicBrainz and AcousticBrainz. It contains semantic, acoustic and sentiment features.
We also provide all the necessary files to reproduce the experiments on genre classification in the paper referenced below
