Like i.e. IMDb "watchlist" but for album we can add and read later, or albums we already own as if it was a personal catalog.

I heartily agree, this would really get me more engaged in allmusic other than just using it for reference.

Though IMDB is the more well known example, I would suggest GoodReads as a better inspiration for how it's done right.

We should be able to log in to save favorites. I really want to read all the bios of my favorite bands and sometimes I might not have time to read a long one so if we could save favorites you could go back go it.

The ability to tag favorites would be awesome. I love to look up a new artist that I am listening to on AllMusic and learn something about them. If I could tag that artist as a favorite, it is much more likely that I would buy through AllMusic. Now, I have to go to Amazon and put it on a wish list or make a note somewhere else for later purchase.

I really want an easy way to mark which albums I've found on AllMusic that I want to remember to check out... I go on music binges all the time, and I wish I could just 'check' albums as I go to revisit.

You should have a button to create a 'listen list' or 'like list', such as IMDB has a 'watchlist'.

The most specific we can be right now about custom lists is to say we plan to work on the feature in the upcoming months.

Thanks.

Wishlist.


I think it would be a nice improvement to have a "Wishlist".
There are albums which I would like to hear. Instead of writing these albums somewhere else, they could just be added directly to Wishlist.

I also have seen that you have this in mind. Do you know how soon the Wishlist will be available?

Create your own lists... It will be awesome that I could create lists of albums that "I Like", "Listen Later", "Favorites"... etc

Wish-list Functionality.


AllMusic. You rock. You're my go-to when I want to learn more about a musical artist. And for that, I thank you. That said, I would positively adore the ability to keep a list of artists I discovered here. So, maybe after I read about an artist, I can easily click a button and that artist will be added. And I can refer to that list at my convenience. Create the functionality and I'll be back even more often! Thanks again. And keep up the good work.

Custom lists of artists, songs, albums.


I think there should be a possibility to make custom lists, so I can make a list of my favourite albums, or of ones I want to hear in the future, and also, it would be great if it could be possible to make lists of songs or artists (sometimes I just love the artist, and I don't care about his albums as I like them all, and also, sometimes I love one song, and I don't want to rate the whole album, I just want to be able to check my favourite-songs list from time to time and look for something that could cheer me up or that I could recommend to someone or something like that).

We want to make lists!.


I want to be able to create my own list where I can catalog my favorite albums, bands, songs, etc. Simple as that. Kind of like in IMDb. This has been a feature I've been waiting ever since I first visited AllMusic.
I think it would be a really big step in making more complex profiles and help build a better community by sharing our lists. Who knows, maybe if you play your cards right, this site can expand and turn into THE music social network.

I think if this had been made a priority a year and a half ago it would have been able to seize that opportunity, but it may be a little too late now as other sites are popping up every day.

I have used allmusic since it launched, but have given up and actually I think open source / open db apis are the best way for users to go to avoid this site turning into a privacy munching ad monster.

whish list.


make a wish list to store all the album we discover and like that, when you find it, you can buy it.... When too much to remember , you doubt of your choice and don't buy.....
