Is there any way to see all of the song attributes a song has? I know it sometimes shows you several of them when it describes why a song is being played, but I'm looking for an exhaustive list.

If not, is there any way to see a list of all the criteria that they look for and rate in a song? Again, I'm looking for an all-inclusive list.

Wikipedia has a rather extensive list of the attributes.

Pandora has a Musical Terms Glossary which explains same of the attributes.

The full list is not available because that's part of their Music Genome service offer (have to license it).

You can see a long (but not full) list of a song's attribute if you go the song's page. You can get there either from your own profile page or by navigating around. See for example: Tainted Love that lists 13 attributes.
