Wrong artists

 
  • Wrong artists

    Can anything be done about wrong artists?
    There's this incorrect tag that's been bothering me for over a year now and that divides my scrobbles for an album into 2 different ones. I don't like that at all and despite many people suggesting the correct tag with the suggestion tool on the page, it's still there. Here it is:
    Mariah Carey Boyz II Men Mariah Carey feat. Boyz II Men
    Can it be erased totally?

    And another one is this:
    Michael Jackson;The Cleveland Orchestra

    Good point, unfortunately from what I have experienced there are a lot of
    non existent artists like that. I think I may have flagged this somewhere; I
    had one artist that was something like 14 with commas and semi colons
    and on top of that in brackets the same ones being the featured artists.

    The problem is I believe when people download music or albums and just
    play as is and donot change the details or correct them in the album/mp3
    properties.

    This annoys me because I have heard some very good music via the last.fm
    radio stations but when the track available has these wrong artists it messes
    up a well ordered library and unfortunately I have to ban the tracks.

    @staff: Yes I know there is the autocorrect, but this does not always work
    and with the amount of inconsistencies it could be a long time before anything
    is sorted.

  • It's just so annoying that it messes everyone's scrobbles. Really I think deleting them completely is the only solution. Autocorrect doesn't work at all.

    Added to this album titles that make no sense at all also don't help and
    because there is no facility to autocorrect these, again scrobbles are
    messed up. I hope that this can be a consideration in future site updates.

  • I hope someone does something for this soon..

  • Composer instead of artist

    The artist for the Metropolis Soundtrack here is Gottfried Huppertz, who is the composer. In my opinion the conductor and the orchestra should be listed as artists: Frank Strobel & Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin
