I've noticed this twice recently. I can't remember the first incidence. This is the most recent. I cannot add artwork to the new album by Echo & The Bunnymen....

https://www.last.fm/music/Echo+&+the+Bunnymen/The+Stars,+The+Oceans+&+the+Moon/+images

There's no facility to "add artwork"

Thanks in anticipation

That usually means it's been blocked for that artist/album for legal reasons.

e.g. https://www.last.fm/music/King+Crimson

Unlike King Crimson, all the other Echo & The Bunnymen album covers are on their artist page, so I am not convinced this is correct.

You've given the example of King Crimson there, Jon - sidebar: the shoutbox on that page is hilarious - but why have they got such an issue with images of themselves and their album artwork being on Last FM? Wikipedia don't seem to have an issue, nor does Amazon....what's their beef with this place?? Seems really unhinged.
