Use BeautifulSoup package in Python to scrape AllMusic.com for covers, “moods,” and reviews. No statistics have been found that suggest the total number of covers/reviews hosted by Allmusic but we hope to have at least 50,000 training examples from a variety of time periods and genres.
The Directory Structure is:
