We should be Able to merge certain Albums together like BROCKHAMPTON’s SATURATION II is listed as SATURATION 2 and It’s affecting most BROCKHAMPTON listeners data.

Usually this would be possible, but right now it's not possible to merge items in the catalogue (or create/remove redirects). When it's fixed it'll be possible to merge albums like this into one entry and reassign any scrobbles. The ETA is that it should be fixed this year...

Any update on the album merge issue? It's a huge bummer to those of us who pay premium fees to last.fm and trust it to give an accurate portrayal of our music listens. (For me, Sufjan Stevens' Illinoise vs Illinois is my sticking point)

This is kind of ridiculous, but I’m glad to hear that there will be user-facing tools to fix it.

It’s even stranger because both link to the same album page with the play count of the one with the higher count. It’s as if it doesn’t understand that the second one exists except in this view. Any idea what’s going on?

I would also like to do this with songs. I made the jump to streaming from iTunes in 2016 and there are lots of things I had labeled myself incorrectly (or Spotify has them listed incorrectly). So like, I'd like to be able to merge plays for "To the Moon & Back" and "To the Moon And Back."

Are there any updates related to this case? Brothers in Arms would be the first album that reached almost one million listeners if it wasn't for this stupid tag splitting. (980,202)
Example:
Brothers In Arms (Remastered)
Brothers In Arms - 20th Anniversary Edition
It's the same tracklist, same running length so I don't see a reason to add those tags. The same applies to "making movies," which appears to have a wrong date release.

I don't know if posting my request here will get it fixed, but here goes.
This relates to the artist <a href="https://www.last.fm/music/Misty's+Big+Adventure">Misty's Big Adventure</a>.
Their debut LP is called "<a href="https://www.last.fm/music/Misty's+Big+Adventure/The+Solar+Hi-Fi+System">The Solar Hi-Fi System</a>"
Unfortunately, 140 users including myself have scrobbled the tracks under the name <a href="https://www.last.fm/music/Misty's+Big+Adventure/The+Solar+Hi+Fi+System">The Solar Hi Fi System</a>, omitting the hyphen. This was due to a careless submission on the database used by the mp3 ripping software.
If these can be transferred to the correct LP title, that would be nice.
