Having these things... might make it feel like the old website... but I'm afraid we've lost 80% of the old last.fm features.

1) Ability to delete scrobbles.
2) Ability to customize page ( number of top artists, changing the layout)
3) Sidebar profile (this was one of my TOP features of last fm was adding badges and pictures on the side)
4) Band Name - Song Title (in recent listens)
5) Album art in recent listens
6) Album art is missing for many albums
7) Being able to see which friends listen to a particular band when you visit that band's page
8) Everything is too big, along with too much whitespace. It looks bad on a desktop... and bad on a mobile browser.

9) Can't start a song queue using Spotify on-demand from an artist page on Last.fm anymore.

I always have about 30 Last.fm artist tabs open in Chrome, and I'd use them throughout the day to play multiple songs from the website. At the moment you only get the option to play individual songs.

This website is terrible

10) Compatibility bar. This was one of the best features on last.fm and now it's gone.

Of course they're going to get the bugs out, and it will be exactly as they hoped, however, this new site doesn't interest me in the least -- I just want to delete my account, and can't find a button to do so.

of course not. because decreasing number of users mean decreasing value. so they removed that feature. seems they knew how bad the new site is

Rasi X -- it's worse than that.  Now they get you all tied up with some site called "Get Satisfaction," going into your Google account, and God knows what that opens you up to.  Getting off the site is complicated as Hell and I'm having trouble doing it.  GODDAMNIT!!!

Everything we created on our sites is gone. Everything, that made lastfm so special has been removed. The old users sites were full of life. I miss everything and I am very sad tonight! :(

Basically now it looks like Spotify's uglier sister, with nothing that was unique and brought fun to last.fm users. I think Spotify suggested those changes to make all the last (!) survivors using this site to abandon it and go to them.

it just doesn't look right, there's no way to personalize it anymore. It was perfectly fine, now it looks like s**t. If I'd see it for the first time today, I wouldn't want to create an account. It's just messy in its "clean" design.

Just bring back the old site, i hate everything about the new one anyway. It's going to suck and i'm probably going to be bored and leave last.fm. NICE WORK!

An absolute joke !!! How can they go to the new site when all the features aren't available? The new site tells me my favourite track was played 28 times which was only played once and was a track I didn't even like!?! In the last year last.fm has gone from bad to worse and now I think they will end up extinct. I'm swearing in my head and just pi**ed off enough to rant on here. I was under the impression things were meant to evolve not dissolve...

I cannot believe how bad this is. I've been a massive fan of this site from day one - and they have literally just taken a huge dump on it. All the best features that made it unique and a pleasure to use are now gone. What a pile of crap.

Another thing missing: Third-party API authentication. Goodbye Universal Scrobbler and basically every other useful add-on for the site. Not that most of them would’ve served any purpose anyway since the ability to put images in our about me section has been taken away.

I'm amazed, but Universal Scrobbler works (!). Tried it and it scrobbled fine.

If you're already logged in, it still works. If you're not already logged in, you're shit out of luck.

...And now the Universal Scrobbler doesn't work anymore even if you are logged in. Fantastic.

We can only pray that most of these will be there after the migration of the system and data to the new site is finished. If not, last.fm will have alienated scores of users.

It was launched too soon. And I just found three pages of repeated scrobbles I need to delete -- this is basicaly what my mobile scrobbler does best.
And we had the option to test the beta layout. Why change it now?

I've said this plenty of times but like... Why did you guys even bother to watch a site that wasn't even close to being completed? Do you just hate your users that much? Launching the site and then going on record of saying "Oh we might add all of this stuff back eventually" is just a horrible way to treat your community.

Let's be real here. You're eventually going to cave and add everything back. Whether it's due to constant complaining or whether it's due to half of your users leaving last.fm. Why didn't you just stick with the old design until this one was finished? No one is happy with the current design. Why were you in such a hurry to push out an unfinished product? Now we will likely have to wait a year or more to see all of the old features added back. I'm basing this off of how slow your team works. I'm afraid you guys have damaged the last.fm brand beyond repair with this rash decision.

actually i don't think they will add most features back. their reactions (if any) in all those other threads seemed.... vague at best

"Why were you in such a hurry to push out an unfinished product?" - Something to do with CBS, I imagine. The whole thing reeks of CBS. The hated aesthetic is suspiciously in-line with that of its other acquisition, MetroLyrics.
