Hello there and welcome to the community.

 

It appears to be a problem with this album which was fully available earlier when I was filling this blog-post.

 

For now, I don't have any infos about this problem. I am going to investigate and will message you when I will know exactly what it is about.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks to have mentioned this failure.

Yes ! What is going on with 50 song memoir ????? It was working and uploaded at 1am. At 10 am the text of the songs went from bold to faded. I emailed spotify and still have not received a response. As a Magnetic Fields mega fan I am pretty disapppointed by this album, nevertheless I need to listen to this album multiple times as soon as possible !

The 50 songs album has been replaced, for now, by a selection of 16 songs. We can expect, later, a deluxe version with more songs.

I hope this selection wiil be a good way for waiting the full listening. :)
