So at first as a user of Last.fm for 9 years i first wanted to go on a rant how there were lots of "scandals that i've witnessed concerning the site - the only one that i was really upset avout was the demolition of the old style radio service. I went with it for a while and subscribed, then figured out that there were other methods to find new music for free - the internet and the "similar artists" tab was more helpful.

I wasn't against the new website when the beta crawled in, though i was worried that literally every stuff on my profile was gone, but i said "Nah, they will fix it when they launch it." Well, you didn't, but i would get by that.

So what i noticed that on the aforementioned "Similar artists" tab became completely useless. Before i could browse for days of new stuff to listen to from one band's 100+ similar bands. Now i have like 10? I was searching for minutes if only i was missing something, like there is a "Next page" button, but no.

I would still get over this, if there was a radio service that was somewhat similar to the old Last.fm Radios, but it's Spotify-based which i don't really like because gets repetitive a lot.

I don't know if this will be addressed in any way. I'm not saying that the website is hopeless, but for now it's just lost it's main function and it bugs me a bit.

Thanks for flagging, you're right it should display more similar artists.  We've raised this with the development team to prioritise.

We apologise for the inconvenience in the meantime.
