This is the same reason why last.fm tags are infuriating. LastFM could be the most amazing music recommendation service, because human-powered music analysis beats the computer every time. But it's a wasted opportunity. Unlike Spotify, LastFM gives you the ability to add meaningful tags to each track. As users, we can actually describe each song - moods, instruments, occasions: catchy, melancholy, dreamy, piano, distortion, cello, relaxing. Imagine being able to say "dreamy relaxing prog-rock hammond organ" and it just gives you a list. Instead, people tag with bullshit tags like "I LIKE THIS TRACK", and made-up artists.
I guess the first cd should be tagged with black francis and the second one with frank black. at first he was in the pixies and and on cd 2 he covers his songs as frank black. the last two albums he released as black francis came way after this one, so i think what i say is right. but anyway shouldn´t we just have fun listening to his music and forget about lame boring tagging questions ? peace out
I realise that the correct name should be Black Francis, but does anyone even call him that? I combine all his solo, catholics, FBF and Black Francis stuff in my WMP as Frank Black. Makes life a lot easier and in fairness, that's who I'm talking about. I don't say Yeah, Calistan by Frank Black is great, but Threshold Apprehension by Black Francis is great too. It's all Frank man, it's all
Back before Bluefinger when we voted on merging Frank Black with Frank Black Francis it came out as NO. For good reason, Frank Black Francis is the correct name for the artist for thr Frank Black Francis album. So 1] Fix the decription, our tags are right and 2] Black Francis is the artist for Bluefinger and is a whole other debate, maybe merge with Frank Black, maybe not.
