Hello,

I have noticed that the total number of scrobbles for some albums is incorrect 

Here is one example;

These both say I have listened to this album 24 times

&

http://www.last.fm/music/Converge/You+Fail+Me


but when you look at each individual song the total should be 57 plays. On the album page it shows last light as only been played two times but on the track page it shows 8.

I have many other examples of this happening if that helps.


Thank you.

Looks like the website isn't recognising the album for some reason.

I've had the same problem in the past = lots of wrong stats.

Does anyone know if there is anyway to either fix this or to edit it yourself?



If not the whole top albums chart becomes useless.

You need to make sure you have entered the albums name on your music/media player for the album to be scrobbled, if that field is left blank, the track will scrobble, but the album will not. Basically you have to tell last.fm what the album is, it can't guess for you .That is why it shows only 2 album scrobbles even though you've played the track 8 times, the last 6 times you've scrobbled the track the album title has been left blank (or you've scrobbled from playing the embedded youtube video, the album never scrobbles when you do this)

I hope this doesn't sound too confusing

That make's sense.

I listen to music at work via the youtube player on last.fm. Does that mean that there is no way for it to count from the album?

That's very poor by last.fm if that's the case.

Last.fm do you have any plans of fixing this issue?

I have the same problem but for lucky, only with one album. Listened it 3 times, and album have 16 tracks, so it schould show 48, but show only 30, or as today, 33... Listened this album from my mp3 copy, and didn't changed any of tags. But when i look at the graphic diag, shows when this album was listened, it look ok,  3 times, and 16 track on every bar.

Considering the spotify player doesn't even scrobble for me, im left with either having no album plays or have the songs not even scrobble.

This is very poor by last.fm

I brought this problem up during the last update announcement and it apparently got noticed by the staff. Only time will tell how long it'll take for them to fix it.

I'm very glad the staff ask acknowledged this problem.

I will continue to ask about it until it is solved, because if my album scrobbles are wrong then half of the stats are useless.

Thank you.

Hello,

I would like to know if this is being worked on or if there is any work around for this.

To me it's unacceptable that while the band scrobbles are still correct, my album stats are totally inaccurate.

I primarily listen to music at work and right now none of those tracks count as album plays.

Thank you.

I am having this same issue, though it only started affecting me recently.

Example: http://www.last.fm/user/reremake/library/music/Black%20Flag

Note that the album Damaged is split into two albums, one with 48 plays and one with 47 plays. They should be collapsed into a single record.

Another example: http://www.last.fm/user/reremake/library/music/Descendents

For some reason, Milo Goes to College has been split into multiple album entries.

I see that you guys can find a way to add more advertisements on my profile page but you cannot find a way to make my album plays statistics correct.

Please find a way to fix this automatically or at least let me manually add what album what certain tracks are from.

It has now been two months since I made you aware of this problem. What are you doing to fix it?

What is the point of having a statistics website if the stats are incorrect? Please give me a manual way of fixing this, while you work on a permanent fix. I will continue to bump this until you give me a solution.

Similar Problem.

Here the scrobbles in my library for Apocalypticas Reflections Revised Album:

http://www.last.fm/de/user/vonNachtmahr/library/music/Apocalyptica/Reflections+Revised

But on the Albumpage http://www.last.fm/de/music/Apocalyptica/Reflections+Revised there were no scrobbles appropriated from me.

I have listened to Colin Reece 82 times but on the overiew page says 74 listens, not very accurate, how many other artists are the number of scrobbles wrong.
