Why not recommending almbums listened ?

I think it is easy to add at the existing "recommended albums" section (or add a new section), albums from our scrobbling history that we never listened more than once, twice etc.
So that we can remember and listen the whole album, that we may have forgotten we partly liked in the past. Or to remind and delete an album we listened once in the past and we don't really like it.

Why only reccomending unlistened albums?
This would be more functional in addition to the existing recommendation system.

As a Pro user you can check Blasts From The Past as a tab on your Music page recommendations:

https://www.last.fm/music/+recommended/rediscover

You can switch between Recent and All time on top of the page, so older artists that you haven't listened to for a longer time will also be listed:

https://www.last.fm/music/+recommended/rediscover?all_time=&page=10

It only lists artists and not albums though.

HI,
I also recommend you the use of the relatively new feature of Bookmarks :-)
You'll then become you own recommender , so to speak.
For instance, if you try 1-2 songs from an album and you think it's worth going further with full album, but not quite at the moment, you simply bookmark that album, and come back at a later time and do the listening. I do this contsntly with new stuff Spotify recommends me with those weekly updated playlists (Release Radar and Discover Weekly) from Spotify.
Same goes with artists and/or tracks.

You are right, but I was talking about albums you listened in the past (years ago) and you may like to listen to the whole album now. Like you left something unfinished... But you may love this kind of music now and you have forgotten you listened to a particular album.
