I read in one of the posts here that you restored tags... I'm trying to find where this tag page is so I can use some popular tags to find new music.

By the way, I haven't been back here since being one of the first members of this Support forum in August, and I must say, the new website still looks like shit and I hardly use it anymore.

Tags have been restored in the sense that you can now tag your Scrobbles. But as far as I know there's no search function within the website yet that lets you search for tags within your library or in general.

With that said, there is still a way to find new music using tag searches via Google. If you enter a genre like this for example: "Last.fm Melodic Death Metal". The first result will be: http://www.last.fm/tag/melodic%20death%20metal

Another way would be to Scrobble music and click on one of the "Popular Tags" within the Scrobbler App.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Ok that bypass URL works. Thanks.

Get your shit together, last.fm. You really plopped a turd on this one.

Now that Global Tags are active, and it is possible to browse from one Global Tag to another related Tag, I think what is missing is an initial page to start the navigation. Ex: An initial Global Tag List inside the "Music" webpage section, or a Global Tag cloud in the "Live" section. I think this should really be an easy no-brainer thing to implement, and in my opinion would improve the music discovery experience of the webpage.

Best Regards
