Google has launched a brand new feature called Music Timeline.
The timeline charts the rise of different music genres over time, highlighting specific album releases and key artists specific to that time and musical styling.
This visual representation of music history uses data from Google’s own music download service Google Play, delving into the many preferences and downloads of its users.
As you can probably tell, the thicker the line, the more popular the music. Underneath these undulating forms are images of the key albums from the genre, which click-through to their respective Google Play download pages.
Clicking on the genres themselves reveal even deeper insight on that style’s sub-genres.
