I scrobbel sometimes a Album in (Disc 1) and (Disc 2), but they show me all titles in one album, and not in different albums .....(Disc 1) and ....Disc 2) Example: Nevermore - The year of the Voyager / Opeth - In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall (3 Discs) and many, many more other Artists! Why!?

As far as I understand, your scrobbles are autocorrected by a fingerprint system that allows a unambiguously classification independently from any tags. So you find the album here. The different sources for the last.fm catalogue list the album sometimes in 2 CDs like this on musicbrainz or as one like this on Spotify. But I'm sure, someone out there can explain it better than I.

Disc 1 and Disc 2 should not be used as part of the album name. There is a tag field specifically for the purpose of disc number.

Are they really distinct albums, though? A good way of determing that is do they have different names? For example, sometimes you get multiple albums re-released for an artist as a bumperpack that saves you money, e.g. Queen's Platinum Collection, which comprises their Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits II, and Greatest Hits III albums. In this case, you have the option to scrobble these as The Platinum Collection or as their separate compilation albums.

Personally, if an album simply happens to be spread over more than one disc (like a large compilation album, e.g. Whitney's I Will Always Love You greatest hits compilation or the deluxe edition of Girls Aloud's one), I would still scrobble both discs under the same name, rather than split them up with "(disc 1)", "(disc 2)", etc. If the only distinction is that some tracks are from the album's first disc and some are from a second or third, then it doesn't seem correct to scrobble them as separate entities. You may disagree, but I think the general consensus would be they should go together.

I think your best case scenario will be that Last FM gives users like you the option to turn off auto-correct on your scrobbles. But as I say, I think from an accuracy perspective, to separate these kinds of releases as different albums is incorrect.

What would be great is if Last FM could show the separate discs under the album pages, rather than one long tracklist, but I have no idea if they're planning to do this.

It is planned to choose between different editions. (A stafff member wrote this some days ago) But maybe, that isn't exactly what you suggest Elliot. To update the settings with a checkbox AUTOCORRECTION ON/OFF Is something what a lot of users would like. (I think so)

That isn't what I meant, Andreas. Ralf is talking about albums that exist as a multi-disc release, not different editions (such as standard, deluxe and special).

To me, and I imagine most users, "The Year of the Voyager (disc 1)" and "The Year of the Voyager (disc 2)" are the same album - simply "The Year of the Voyager".
