Artist/album counts

 
  • Artist/album counts

    I have noticed a huge discrepancy between the number of plays for certain artists and the number of plays for their albums, e.g. 500 plays but only a couple of albums scrobbled with 50-odd plays each - does anyone know if this is a common problem and if it is likely to be resolved? Thanks.

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Do you have any examples?

  • No problem. Yes, several. For example, a total play count for Bright Eyes of 892 - but the albums played only tally to about 6-700. Similar for many other artists. The albums scrobble fine now, so it may just have been an issue in the past.

  • That's just an educated guess, but I think it could have had to do with either incorrect artist redirections or to this known issue:
    Scrobbles are attributed to an incorrect album despite tags being correct
    • We're currently investigating the cause of this, however we can't retroactively fix this in libraries as we don't currently do album corrections, in the same way we do artist/track corrections. More info here.


    Good to know that somehow it was fixed in the meantime :)

    Is that the same prob as the library album page showing 4 plays ; but the link showing 14?

    @go_let_it_oot I think I see what you mean. You are referring to the plays in your library. Note that several tracks do not list an album. Those scrobbles don't count on the album counts because they don't have an album associated with them.

    And yes, those don't add up to the difference. However, you need to look deeper to see all of these.

    Improve your view of Last.fm - add some User Scripts.

  • Thanks for that everyone. Snyde1, yes that seems to be what has happened to music I listened to in 2007. Is there any way of retrospectively associating those songs with albums?
