Where have the All Music reviews gone from the album page?

I think Spotify should be looking to implement better integration with meta data suppliers rather than remove it! We need album and artist info to look at whilst we are playing the albums, more info please not less!!!


Although this idea has been suggested first, I'd like to merge it with a slightly more popular idea to ensure this idea gets the best attention it deserves:

I'm (very vaguely) working on a fanart app, but I think an album review app would be very useful now that the review seem to have gone. What sites would people be interested in getting reviews from?

I think you will find the most detailed info on All Music Group site and that is where Spotify used to grab their bio and album info from - I think Rovi use it and talk about it here: http://www.rovicorp.com/products/discovery/metadata.htm
LastFM of course provides loads of metatdata, but they tend to show artist info rather than album info in their own app.
However, EchoNest (http://the.echonest.com/) seem to be the defacto supplier of music data now for plenty of apps such as SpotOn radio - looks a great platform!
I wish you well - I think that's what Spotify launched the app interface for, they just want to supply the music, player interface tweaks I am sure they would rather leave to third party developers - roll on Spotify 'skins'!! :0)
