I found an odd example of censorship of spotify. The clean version is "Dirty" sometimes and there is no explicit version with parental warning sticker available under the artist page. But in my discovery section the album has a Parental warning sticker half the album is "Dirty" and the second half (disc 2 ) is censored. This is a new album and it seems the 2 versions are mixed up and mislabeled when it chooses to be. If I play the clean version some songs are uncensored yet when I re-play it comes up censored. There should be a more precise way to chose what is going to play.
Artist - Five finger death punch
Album- The wrong side of heaven and the righteous side of hell
Conversely, I would really like the option to eliminate all censored songs (from radio streams especially). Every blip, whir, or weird time slip completely pulls me out of the music. If I hear more than a couple of these, I turn off my Spotify (and sometimes stop listening to music altogether).
All the Spotify folks refer to Jude's post. However, that avoids the main complaint: the iPhone app. There is no good way to find the ORIGINAL versions of the songs. Everything simply defaults to the "edited" version. That is unacceptable, but given how long this thread has existed, I am not going to hold my breath for a fix. Thankfully I'm still in my 30 day trial. This is a deal breaker for an otherwise great service.
The fix seems terribly easy, but nothing has been done for well over a year.
How do you turn off the censorship or find that darn!!! Arrow the Spotify states holds the 2nd explicity album!!!! I wont subscribe unless this is fixed withing my 30 day trial and will go try Pandora next. Thank you
Well sometimes my spotify has a weird glitchwere it plays the uncensored version, however, when i go to play it again, it is again censored, and also, ive seen a youtube video using spotify, have the uncensored version of the same exact song played, it didn't have the explicit sticker and the album doesn't have an uncensored duplicate.
