Sometimes, single releases may be credited… read more

    Can somebody tell me what kind of music they usually play? I have been thinking about buying some albums made by these guys...

    They are currently working on bringing this back as an album artist. It is currently working 100% by scrobbling Various Artists as Album Artist like we used to. All compilation tracks/artists are now collected under the album in Various Artists. However the Various Artists albums are not displayed correctly in the Top Albums list on our profiles or library; they have wrong links and take album art from one of the artists' album page instead of the Various Artists album art.

    r.i.p the functionality of having 'various artists' listed as album artist and having it all scrobble under the same album, you will be missed (╯︵╰,) this new last.fm update completely trashed that feature & now it just lists any artist that's on a VA compilation as having their own album [10]

    man, what's worse is that the album art for VA comps shown in 'recent scrobbles' is the album art that was uploaded to the Various Artists page of the album, rather than the the individual artist's. it's like last.fm has become sentient in its horrendously dysfunctional state and is mocking us with working album art display but broken scrobbles

Now I just think it's dumb as hell that they overlooked this problem completely. Change for the sake of change is stupid, especially when you lose a lot of core functionality along the way.
