Erogenous Zone Album

  • Question
  • Updated 5 days ago
Hi, I have reached out to the content department about having the album Erogenous Zone by Martone information uploaded to this discography https://www.allmusic.com/artist/martone-mn0003801423/discography

I understand that the department is busy with uploading other materials. It would be awesome if AllMusic had a phone number for the content department to speak with. Here is the link for the Erogenous Zone album https://music.apple.com/us/album/erogenous-zone/1469484320

We had previously provided the album artwork and lyrics via email. Can you tell me the approximate time it takes for that information to be uploaded into AllMusic's database. FYC begins on June 24, 2019 - I would like to make sure that we have the info uploaded within the next few weeks. 

One last question, what is the process of having projects reviewed by AllMusic?

Hi Angela,
It sounds like you've followed the proper steps and now the information you provided is going through the TiVo process of ingestion.

I will say that the team that adds the information is pretty small and they receive thousands of pieces of information a week that need to be looked at. There isn't really a phone number or hotline to call and ask about status.

As far as getting something reviewed by an editor, the story is similar. Much like a magazine or print media, the editorial staff needs to prioritize what gets written up based on the artist's popularity or the level of public interest. Unfortunately there isn't really a way to push a request to the top of the pile.

On AllMusic we do have the ability for fans of the album to contribute their own user reviews, and we find that helps to fill some of the gaps that the editors can't get to.

Hi Zac, 

Is there a listing for indie artists that I could possibly file under. It would seem that all the well-known artists are getting attention. 

Thanks for your response. :-)

Hi Zac, 

I am still waiting for Allmusic to update Erogenous Zone by Martone to be updated on the website. This music is currently available on all platforms. Please advise 

Thank  you,

I can follow up with our data provider.

I know you stated "We had previously provided the album artwork and lyrics via email."
Have you filled out the Digital Music Template and mailed it to content.music@tivo.com?

The template is available on this page:
https://www.allmusic.com/product-submissions

So they have received the data in the format they require? The template has been filled out and sent to them?  That is the format they require and I can follow up to see if they have received a completed template from you.

If the information has just been provided in the body of an email (without the template) that may be what is slowing down the process).

If you forward the completed template to support (at) allmusic (dot) com I can try to send it on to them as a request.

Hi Zac, 

I noticed that the title is available on AllMusic.com but what's missing is the artwork, and tracklisting and credits. Is it still propagating?

Hi Zac, 

I do not believe there is any data entry going on. Is it possible to send the info to someone directly to have this information uploaded? It is just a shell on that page and no artwork.

Yes, I am not sure why the data entry has not been completed. Are you able to check on that?

Hi Zac, 

I noticed that the site has been updated with the album photo and song titles. But the vital info is missing. I am sorry to keep bugging you about this - I am not sure why some are failing to input the info properly.

Hi Zac, 

I am not sure what else I need to do. I have provided all the information over to content.music@tivo.com and either they do not care about getting this info correct or they are not paying attention to the info that is provided. I am not sure what is worse. 

Over the past couple of years, I have worked hard to keep the "Martone Rock Group" info separate from the "Electronic Artist Martone" now, today, I checked the info on the site and find that every single song on the Erogenous Zone project says, Featuring Martone (The Rock Group) - there is no feature accept on the songs that were submitted in the template (See the screenshot). This is beginning to be beyond frustrating.  

The content team has the correct information, and I just wish they use it. https://www.allmusic.com/album/erogenous-zone-mw0003309471

How can we escalate this issue to the correct people to make sure that is done right?
