https://open.spotify.com/user/ross932

It contains the top 20 albums of each Year/Decade, albeit some contain less depending whether the album can be found on Spotify.

Good luck listening to them all Wink

I’ll add a playlist for the newest albums and overall albums at some point too.

Holy sh*t mate. I've done the overall and decade charts, but every single year!

Also would you say the amount missing is 5%, 10% or 20%? Seems it fluctuates as some artists pull from spotify which were once there and then some add who weren't there before.

The first time I attempted this maybe as much as 20% of the overall was missing, but now that Neil Young, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. are on Spotify... it's pretty solid now to listen to "all of the lists".

New music is mostly easy on Spotify. Not always of course.

What an epic undertaking. Awesome job! Might have to go through these (slowly!) - not as familiar with some of the canon as I'd like.

Curious though - in the overall chart, the last 10 tracks of The White Album are missing?

It's hard to tell tbh as the process of searching Spotify for the album's is done automatically. I created an app that pulls all the album's from each of the rss feeds searches Spotify for the album filtering by artist then adds the album tracks to the playlist.

Thanks! I'll take a look later on not sure why it hasn't added the full album.

I've noticed a few inconsistencies myself with things such as the live album being picked instead of the studio album and the deluxe album instead of the original album

Problem is that it choose the first album search result each time which although the majority of the time is correct sometimes the original non deluxe/live album is not the first result Laughing

It's going to be difficult to get exact matches without some sort of foreign key (and back-filling 100,000 albums with Spotify IDs and/or other music service IDs isn't something that BEA is going to start doing as it's far too much work to do manually). However, if there was a common reference that all the APIs used to identify each album/track etc, there'd be a much better case for capturing this on BEA and exposing this in the RSS feeds (however, looking at the APIs from Discogs, Last.fm and AllMusic, I can't see any real commonality).

ISRC codes could be used as unique foreign key for each track.
Don't know about API/database availability, but here's a search page: https://isrcsearch.ifpi.org/#!/search

Maybe some sort of script could scrape results of that page to automatically fill most of the entries? (if no better way is available..)

..of course, as long as the other formats don't add it to their API's..
