    Hi Michael, I guess you were not able to get the rating stars implemented? Not possible or lack of time and urgency? (Which is understandable of course, although it is a feature I would much like)

    Regards

    I thought that back then (you're quoting from 6 years ago :-)) we came
    to conclude that people didn't care much about ratings other than their
    own. I haven't further looked into this.

    Would you imagine this to be part of the music information, rather than
    the built-in ratings.

    Can you see any reason why I wouldn't see an album review for Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs?

    Could be but Allmusic use "and". Would a lower case "a" make a difference?

    Hmm the album review is there if I access it via
    More info/Album Information/Album review.
    It isn't there when I use the "i" button in Material Skin.

    Hi Michael, to be honest: I got interested in these ratings due to your much appreciated integration of the online libraries of Tidal and Spotify etc... Because of the large numbers of now available music in view, the ratings would give me insight of which albums are perceived best/better. So when exploring/discovering they help me determine which albums to listen first at...
    Some sorting option would therefore be helpful: Roon, I observed, also has a sorting option that makes use of this rating to order the "most" interesting albums first...)

    I do understand people use rating now for their own filtering and creation of playlists, and as such the trackstat plugin was probably very helpful. To be honest I do not put that effort in cataloguing, especially as AI at Spotify does a good job at predicting what I might like, and I do like to get surprised and discover new music and even listen to tracks I like less. The artist did put creative effort in it, and as such I do not mind that the AllMusic ratings are on album level and not on track.
    That said: the "picks" on track level might be very interesting to implement on track level as well....

    Basically these are some of the few features from Roon I like: the "ratings" to see what album are generally liked, the "picks" that the AllMusic editors find worthy of attention, the "dynamic range" info of the albums, the parametric equalizer (for use with my headphones)...
    It is great that LMS allows a lot to be done with plugins, so i hope these features get a place somewhere sometime... (i have btw kind of managed something for the peq with sox and and the custom_conv.conf)


    I did see the AllMusic Ratings tag in the input for the MAI plugin, so it maybe should not be to complicated to at least make them visible and maybe insert into the ratings field when still empty?


    Edit: writing down my ideas, makes me realise this is not feasible for discovery in online catalogue. It would require multiple instant queries to the api's to collect all kinds of data that maybe gets looked at.
    But adding the allmusic rating to the album review and the picks to the tracks that are actually selected and playing would still be very helpful and insightful I think.
    So yes, if this could be atleast added as information, then it would not need to be integrated to the ratings... (writing it to still empty ratings would add benefit of filtering options and still not need to obstruct personal ratings as they can be "corrected" afterwards?)

    Hi!

    I have one question regarding the number of artist pictures.
    In my folder with the pictures are 879 files where one is artist.png. So normally I would expect that there are 878 artists, maybe 879 when counting "Collections" (there is no picture for this) as an artist.
    But when I let LMS scan the library it is telling me every time that there are 880 artist pictures.
    When I look later at the music library/artists, I correctly get 879 artists as a number.

    Although the music.app on my Mac (uses exactly the same data) is telling me that there are 878 artists. But maybe Music is not counting "Collections" and LMS is counting it.

    Is there a "+1" problem when scanning the library?

    Could it be that you re-tagged an album to correct a perceived tagging error? MAI doesnĺt delete any previously downloaded art that I know of meaning you could have 2 images for the same artist one based on the name before re-tagging and one after?
