Was listening to some Metallica today when I had a brainwave.
I was listening to their top tracks which are shown here:
It has been a while since I listened to them but after listening to The Unforgiven (play had moved onto the next track), I remember being a fan of that album in the past.
However, Spotify have no quick way to navigate to the album that The Unforgiven is on, without it being the currently playing track (in which case you can press the album name in the cover art section) which is annoying since I now need to go back to that track just to get to the album (of course I could search but I am lazy!)
So on that thought, can we have a "Go to Album" option on the right click menu on the Top Tracks for Artists?
Having used Spotify for a while, I think a major improvement would be to implement some form of Artist Splitting where the artist is of the same name. This would greatly improve experience especially as artist radio and related artists would actually be relevant!
Perhaps something like this: (excuse the poor mockup), with a splitter for each artist of the same name, with their albums, related artists etc below?
Ever since the new update, i'm are not capable of searching for songs/artist/albums on my Android device if I am offline. This is incredibly frustrating because this means I have to scroll through me playlist (containing over 700 songs on each playlist) to find one indivisual track,arist, or album. Spotify needs to bring this feature back to android devices.
I view an artist's page. I see 15 followers. I know that one can not simply "stubble" upon this artist ... it MUST be searched for. So who are these people ? These chosen few who share a similar taste in melody, these who knew they're way to treasure, these 15.
My wish; is to go to an artist and see these followers and their "Starred Tracks", to know who these people are, to discover more of what I desire, I want to follow these followers. If this impossible, then at least show me playlist that a particular song has been added to.
Without the ability to know who these followers are, what point is there in showing the number of followers ? ... it is a taunt.
I love MP3 players and CD shelves for the fact that I can browse what music I have to help me decide what to listen.
Now with Spotify I need to know what I listen in terms of searching artist/album/track. Usually it's too much and I end up listening to same songs.
I'd like to be able to define the artists I like in Spotify and Spotify would then allow me to browse that list of artists and selecting the artist it would show me all albums of that artist.
Most importantly, I could remove some albums that I don't listen to.
Simple idea, really. I dont want to manually create playlist per artist keep it up to date. I also don't want to keep subscribed to external services that will notify me when there's new album out as it probably isn't in Spotify yet.
I love the starred songs function for the computer. I use it as my song library. But on my iPhone I never use it because it is soooooo hard to find the song I want to play. Please format to where you pick the artist and then the song or just have a "starred artist" section so you could just quickly pick the artist instead of having to search all the time
