campreverb, Tuesday, 16 June 2015 15:00 (five years ago) link

every scrobbling mechanism I use seems to have decided to become a dick and not record anything I listen to

I Am Curious (Dolezal) (DJP), Tuesday, 16 June 2015 15:11 (five years ago) link

same, none of my ipod plays get scrobbled, plus the fact that a large portion of my listening is on youtube and this new design = seeya later

I think it's open to all users now.

moans and feedback (Dinsdale), Tuesday, 16 June 2015 18:17 (five years ago) link

They finally updated their Android app and... now nothing scrobbles at all. Nice work guys.

Just noise and screaming and no musical value at all. (Colonel Poo), Friday, 19 June 2015 16:23 (five years ago) link

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 19 June 2015 16:53 (five years ago) link

that's hideous. stop making everything so desktop unfriendly.
what i want from last fm is to see someone's entire music taste in one vista

cerealbar, Friday, 19 June 2015 18:33 (five years ago) link

i have no idea why they have changed it. as you say, it's hideous.

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 19 June 2015 20:36 (five years ago) link

I'm pretty bummed out about the Android app not working. I use my phone as my portable music player and virtually all my digital listening is done this way, and I really liked having it log all my songs because I use the gig recommendations RSS feed to notify me when bands I like are playing live. That's pretty much the main reason I even have a last.fm account.

Apart from the official app (which has always been shit, but at least it used to scrobble tracks), I've tried Simple last.fm Scrobbler, Scrobb, Last.fm for Android and none of the bastards work.

This app has been solid the entire time on OS X: http://meloapp.com

Elvis Telecom, Monday, 22 June 2015 19:38 (five years ago) link

All I want from Last.FM is for it to log what I listen to over the weeks/months/years and to display this in list form. That's all. And the android app does not do this and never has.

boat of boats (dog latin), Tuesday, 23 June 2015 09:57 (five years ago) link

The old Android app used to scrobble for me, certainly worked a lot better than the Itunes scrobbler which never worked from my ipod properly, used to randomly scrobble about 5% of songs I listened to.

Apart from scrobbling the old app was total shit though. The events list had the wrong dates on it! The further in the future the gig was, the more inaccurate the date would be. I dunno how they managed that, probably takes some effort to code something that badly.

Just noise and screaming and no musical value at all. (Colonel Poo), Tuesday, 23 June 2015 10:04 (five years ago) link

it always scrobbled, but you couldn't look at any top-tracks or artists lists, so pointless.

boat of boats (dog latin), Tuesday, 23 June 2015 10:06 (five years ago) link

also, my top artists list has never changed since 2011 when for about 6 months everything i listened to scrobbled approx 10 times per play.

boat of boats (dog latin), Tuesday, 23 June 2015 10:22 (five years ago) link

one month passes...

So, I've just heard from a good friend of mine that uses this thing quite a lot that apparently they've just rolled out the new site today, but unfortunately it seems that last.fm have decided to not complete work on the site before rolling it out, so the general vibe is that last.fm have half-assed it. I'm hearing about disabled features all over the place, the site generally not working properly and things going missing, coupled with the fact that it doesn't seem like many folks are keen on the new layout to begin with.

I looked over to the last.fm website support forum out of curiosity, and as you'd expect there's plenty of whining.

It looks like some people have had duplicate scrobbles return that they got rid of ages ago, and private messages that they'd deleted returning to their inboxes etc.

uggh, my eyes

feargal czukay (NickB), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:16 (five years ago) link

wow, it looks awful

PaulTMA, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:18 (five years ago) link

From the sounds of it, they've wildly over-complicated the whole site. Personally, I thought it was at its best when it was the original Audioscrobbler.

told you it was shite

Cosmic Slop, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:30 (five years ago) link

Music purists everywhere are cringing at the idea of song title - artist. Myself included. Petty, yes, but kind of a huge deal to someone who sees music as their life and thus Last.FM as a big part of that venture.

i've tried to compose a snarky put-down for this gentleman but really

Cosmic Slop, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:34 (five years ago) link

A couple of months back, we launched a BETA version of the new Last.fm to registered users and now we're ready for it to go live to everyone.

The new, re-imagined Last.fm includes a host of innovative features that will help users better navigate, explore and enjoy an infinite universe of music.

Some of the features included are:
The new User Homepage - which includes tracks, albums, artists and events (with even more to come) - surfaces all the music you are sure to love in one handy place. Whether it's a brand new release or a forgotten favourite, click play to listen instantly via the new Last.fm Playbar
Last.fm Live lets you visualise in real-time the listening habits and trends of Last.fm's global community. It does this by using a series of interactive widgets that surface trending music, artists, most loved tracks and more. Essentially, what Last.fm users are listening to and where.
A new Library Explorer, which enables you to delve deep into your listening history to rekindle those distant memories. What were you listening to on that hazy day back in Summer 2009? Last.fm can tell you exactly that.
The new Last.fm Playbar, gives you access to a huge catalogue of music by pulling in music from multiple streaming sources and staying with you across the site wherever your Last.fm journey takes you.
Last.fm has also added Metacritic scores to album pages. Metacritic aggregates music reviews from leading critics around the world; meaning you can now see what scores albums are given by tastemakers alongside our listening data from fans.
By surfacing Last.fm's listening data and music in new and more relevant ways, we're able to offer users the strongest, most personalised music recommendations around. Last.fm does this by connecting the most popular places to listen, watch and share music - from Spotify to YouTube, iTunes to Tidal - while organising your listening history and introducing you to music based on your tastes.
Love,
Last.fm

get fucked last.fm

Cosmic Slop, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:39 (five years ago) link

I assume "we're now ready for it to go live to everyone" really means "the site isn't finished, but you're having it anyway so fuck off"

and Metacritic scores on album pages? Big fucking woo!

this is awful

Holy shit, they reversed it?

Goodbye forever, lastfm.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:45 (five years ago) link

oops i self-mangled my cut & paste of their own mangled verbiage xp

feargal czukay (NickB), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:46 (five years ago) link

xp I'm looking around now and I don't see any place that they've reversed artist & title (except when displayed as a stack, which I don't care about). The ticker at the bottom of the homepage still displays info in artist/title form.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:49 (five years ago) link

Eh? I copy and pasted that directly from here yet it doesn't say that on the site. Weird!

Sorry, that was xpost to NickB.

But even so, I don't really see how any of this is in any way an enhancement on what was already there.

looks like they've removed 'friends' and replaced it with 'following' and 'followers'. 'neighbours' has totally vanished afaict?

feargal czukay (NickB), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:52 (five years ago) link

limiting Recent Tracks and Top Tracks to 10 tracks is bad enough, but limiting Top Artists to just 5 is heinous

I have never given a shit about artist photos and never will

welltris (crüt), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:53 (five years ago) link

i like artist photos, but i always hate it when they show a photo of the other band x

feargal czukay (NickB), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:54 (five years ago) link

e.g. the photo of algiers is two pasty-looking yorkshiremen in their bathtowels

feargal czukay (NickB), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:56 (five years ago) link

The homepage is full of this information that's being continuously refreshed and it looks like some kind of fake computer screen from a spy movie.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:56 (five years ago) link

left my feedback on the site. hopefully there will be enough of a backlash that they make some changes. I'm cool with overhauling the site, but I'd really like the option to customize my lists the way I like them.

welltris (crüt), Monday, 17 August 2015 15:56 (five years ago) link

album pic not being displayed beside the recent tracks as well as not being able to seewhovisits your page is the worst

Cosmic Slop, Monday, 17 August 2015 15:58 (five years ago) link

not being able to seewhovisits your page

i didn't even know this was a feature

welltris (crüt), Monday, 17 August 2015 16:00 (five years ago) link
