Is it intentional that every page I visit on your site, I am greeted with a full window sized overlay ad for some sort of soft drink? I have wait for it to load and then close it on every page I visit on Allmusic and it makes your site rather painful to use.

Hi all,
The ad should not be coming up as frequently as it has been, and we have asked our colleagues in ad ops to fix it.

Thank you for your patience, and for using AllMusic!

Can't even use the website. So I guess you guys would rather make money from advertisers.
This is outta control. Stop the annoying popups that happen EVERY fucking time I try to do ANYTHING!!!!

I understand that you need ads to support the site, but the giant moving ads that cover up the entire page are a bit much, don't you think? And the current 7up ad pops up every time I click on a new link. Very irritating. I am now much less likely to purchase 7up or to use Allmusic, which is sad, because I love Allmusic.

Hi all,
This should be fixed now. If you see the ad more than once per hour, let us know.

Thank you for using AllMusic, and for your patience while we resolved the issue!
