the other weird thing is when they have multiple entries for an artist, like:
public image limited
PIL
public image ltd.

the new album is only under one of those....it can be tricky.

growing pains, i guess.

Yeah, that's awkward but I think that is part of their way to make sure no matter how you search you're going to find what you're looking for. We do that in the library world (although in our world you'd be able to find the album under all of those names)... they need to hire a Cataloger.

Consistency is hard to achieve with master data maintenance on that scale, you're going to have that unless there is a (large) team of people to police it. 

Besides that, I wouldn't be surprised if they're just using Gracenote data, which I believe is community sourced much like wikipedia.

My guess on the Concrete Blonde album is that it's a 2009 re-release.  No idea what's up with Ray LaMontagne... was he even recording that long ago?  He's probably not even that old.

So I just looked up the dates because I was being pretty arbitrary (and lazy). The date Spotify has for the album "Till the Sun Turns Black" is 1980. Wikipedia says that the album came out 2006. And yeah, I suppose if it has come out in 1980 he could have recorded it but he would have been pretty young. He was born in 1973.

even though i am warming up to the smashing pumpkins new album (i don't think it is stellar but it did get me to take notice, which in itself is remarkable), i was on the fence about adding it to the playlist...but after that samuel jackson 5 song, i don't think there would be a better intro for it.

cool.
if subscriber numbers dip, i say we allow 6 songs per person (you'll recall the unwritten rule is 5).

The July playlist isn't showing me any subscribers.  Did something happen when I changed it from collaborative?  Are people still subscribed to it?

Weird. I went to my profile and clicked into the playlist from there and now it's showing subscribers.  Must be some glitchy business going on.

I can see the subscribers for July. Probably just more Spotify glitchy crap.

That new Muse song sounds as if the band has been listening to too much top 40 radio.
