Tracks Scrobbling under different albums based on capitalization of album

Im noticing it appears that tracks scobbled after 2015 are now linked to albums based on capitalization of the album title, instead of all being linked to one album title.


it can best be demonstrated at this link

how can this be fixed so all the tracks scrobble under the correct album title, regardless of capitalization of the album title?

upon further review, it seems to be seperating scrobbles between artists listed with "The" in the band title, and the band name without the "The" in the band title.... only when viewing the album itself, and only for scrobbles past 2015

This is caused by the new scrobble database which you can read about here.  In short, corrections now work properly in your library, however because the corrections dataset has been static for the last 3 years (since we relaunched the website), we can't apply existing artist corrections to new tracks and albums yet.  This will be fixed when we're able to add new corrections to the catalogue.

I wrote a more detailed explanation as a reply to this thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/new-last-fm-scrobbles-database
