Please bring back the ability to sort by genre on the new releases page. I like to see the new releases for a week for several genres. It is much easier to sort by genre and go down the list of releases skipping the genres I'm interested than it is to have to pick each genre I'm interested in.

Hi Jason,
Are you referring to being able to select your Genre Preferences once and then always be presented with the new releases you're interested in?

That is something we're planning but we don't yet have the User Login stuff integrated (so we don't know specifically who you are when you arrive at the page). That is something we're working toward and will be in place by our proper (non-beta) launch.

As it is now, you can select the individual genres you like and see the releases over the past 4 weeks in that genre:

Hi Zac,

Selecting genre preferences and only seeing new releases for those genres would be great. But I'm referring to the ability to sort by genre that exists on the current site.



Sorting by genre allows me to go down the list of new releases and skip genres I'm not interested in. In the attached screen shot I'd see Avant-Garde was first and skip it, look at all the Blues items, skip Classical, look at Comedy/Spoken, Country, etc.

In general, I'd say the ability to sort any list or category is critical for anyone doing research.

Hello, just like jason, I don't want to remove the genre i'm not interested in at the moment, I just won't look at them but i still want them to be there, thus allowing me to skim over folk one week and R&B the next. I don't want to change my preference all the time.
