Spotify is also blocked by my company so I can't even get access to that.

Echoing others' opinion on the look and feel of the website. I would like at least the option to go back to the old version. Back then I could share the YouTube videos on my Facebook profile more easily and get my friends interested in new music....

I signed it. If there's anything you can think of, do it. Don't forget to flood office@last.fm with negative emails.

Signed, the new look is a horrible mess, top artists, top albums, who needs huge pictures of 5 artists over the page when we had easy to look through charts...if Last.fm needs something really bad it's not new design, it's a way to sort all those artists that share similar name and keep messing with recommended music.

At least they should give us the option to customize the page or switch it back to the old one.

Geralmente Tudo Que é Novo, é Gostoso, Por Isso Nunca Fico Velho, e Sei Que Essa Mudança da LastFM Deverá Ser um Grande Espetáculo da Internet, Vi Que Sumiu Tudo, Desapareceram Meus Amigos, Scrobbles e Mais um Monte de Coisa, Geralmente Isso Acontece Quando Estamos Arrumando a Nossa Casa Então Eu Acredito Que Essa Nova Roupagem da LastFM, Vai Nos Trazer Bastante Novidade, Para o Maior Centro da Música no Mundo Que é Aqui na LastFM!

The new Last.fm is clearly market-oriented and certainly promoting bad taste and average preferences in music! In the new versions we are constantly suggested top hits and what people around the web is listening. I do not want that! For these purposes there are plenty of other music websites and radio stations! Moreover, I noticed that rare artists, unfashionable albums, unusual tags, customized musical niches build by users, friends and groups were removed! Now I just want to save my music history because I am sure that they will erase it, as they did with my precious tags!

What and ugly, bloated and slow design. If not changing, I will definitively stop using last.fm...

For the curious, I'm going to  translate Argeu's post:
"Usually all that is new, it's tasty (???), that's why I never get old, and i know this change on LastFM must be a big show on the internet, I saw that everything is gone, my friends have disappeared, scrobbles and everything else, usually that happens when we're cleaning up our house and I belive that LastFM new designwill bring us a lot of new stuff for what is the biggest music centre in the world, that's here on LastFM!
PS: It have a lot of incohesive and grammatical errors and I tried to keep it

Congrats, you ruined the site... I'm using it since 2006 but now it's weird looking, less customizable and quite sad in general, especially the library is heartbreaking, where are all the pretty pics gone?! Only tiny round shaped things, that makes no sense AT ALL.
The design is awful, I'm surely quitting the site if nothing better will pop out soon.
PISSED.

I agree with the overall tone here. New website just makes last.fm another social network among hundreds... the interface is not user-friendly I would say. The white background is lifeless and anodine, making hard to navigate. I small change such as from friends to followers bring a whole lotta of consequences, the warmth of having a friend is way better than having followers... not to say that someone can follow you without you wanting it, which wasn't the case with friends. 
In the last years the changes last.fm have been bringing forth are mainly uniformizing the website so it looks like everything else online. A big shame I'd say.

Why change something good that was working and everybody liked? People who thought the new site was great idea should be fired immediately...

Because last.fm is going hungry to a market orientated website. In this sense very little matters to them what we think. Bye bye the obscure music you could get the chance to discover on the website and welcome artists supported by labels.

Yeah this seems to be a slap in the face for obscure artists, most of the features for that is now gone. I wonder if they even allow new obscure artists on here.

And what is the worst thing is that finding obscure bands was probably the main option for lots of users (including me), in addition last.fm was the most popular platform for that.

Geez. Epic Fail. Replace something that was working perfectly fine with something "new and fancy" and thereby breaking almost everything along the way. I mean, I don't mind beta but this is barely alpha at best. Where are my events? How to I add events to my list of events? How do I change the location for which events should be shown?
Come one, you gotta be kiddin'. This is worse than a half-arsed attempt to drive me away from last.fm. At least bring back the old design for one day so that I can grab my list of events, store it locally for safe keeping and then be done with last.fm for good.

I was using lastfm just for artist library without scrobbling. Now I lost all saved artists, please give a chance to save / restore / temporary revert.

Below, we’ve listed the areas that may experience some disruption.

  • Deleting, loving and tagging scrobbles
  • Account creation, profile editing (including avatar uploads) and password changing
  • Shouts and private messaging
  • Following and unfollowing of users
  • Event attendance
  • Subscription changes
  • Wiki editing
  • Event creation and editing
  • Authentication of third-party apps
so in summary, basically everything. why do you release a broken site?

it's total crap, doesn't work, lots of lost or broken functions, the design is boring, round avatars are really nothing innovative anymore.

but it doesn't matter what we want or what we say here. it never did.

They completely ignored the about me sections. When they switched it over they deleted everything i had!! Can't even use the bandlogo thing. This new site is horrible. They don't listen to feedback and they think they'll bring in more users with this new site, all the while losing majority of those who spent so much time on this site, i won't be using this site anymore.

I guess at least this big fail is serving as a 'good' marketing tool. An odd way to get exposure I'd say, but Im sure this big fail will stay as one of the biggest in the history of the interwebz.

Ok. So that's all. After 7 years of scrobbling last.fm is changing "for us". For what the fck? It's time to leave last.fm. Let me use old version. I don't want more from you.

Last.fm was ruined 5 years ago (if not before that) by CBS and piss-poor management, and in the last year or so I'd pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this place had become nothing more than a scrobble and music listening stats site, rather than a genuine social media site for sharing and discovering new and old music with like-minded people.

That being said, I was ok with updating the site. It had become stale and needed a face lift... even if I knew it would ultimately look like shit. But if you've gotten rid of all the old features and small but important details that users have enjoyed for more than 10 years, then what's the point? The Library Explorer and Last.fm Playbar are fine (the latter definately needed improving as far as Spotify integration was concerned, though we should have the option to disable youtube), but the whole site feels boxed in and empty.

Unfortunately i can't use this new site. Many of the functionality is gone and i feel like i have wasted all my time on this site. This push towards the new design is what is driving the last nail in the coffin for last.fm.

If they waited until they got everything back, it might be better but this is a poorly redesign from the original setup. With missing features and only able to have 200 characters in 'about me' and not even able to put code in just looses the appeal last.fm had. Now it's just another glorified Spotify.
