Ability to Report / Flag Pandora Library Issues

Ability to Report / Flag Pandora Library Issues

Greetings,

As an avid Pandora user, I (like many others I presume) spend a decent amount of time & energy to curate my various stations. 

In my efforts I have occasionally come across some incorrectly labeled bands/songs/albums...  I believe this happens when more than one band/artist share a (similar) name; however, this can cause some havoc when streamlining a station for a specific genre.

For example, my station, "Goes to 11" features various metal and rock bands.  While delving into some doom metal bands I came across 'Funeral', a Norwegian Funeral Doom Metal band.  To my pleasure, Pandora has them as an available artist (unfortunately Orodruin is not - sad face); however, clicking on their artist page seems to feature what appears to be a rap/hip-hop act named 'Funeral' with a single song "Die Lit" (with the rest of Norway's 'Funeral' doom metal albums beneath.  Mind you, I have no problem with rap/hip-hop but (if I liked this song) I'd categorize it under my 'What? Yeah! Okaaaaaay!" station.  Please note that this isn't the only time that I have come across an error such as this.

Might Pandora consider adding a feature where listeners can "report" when a song/artist/album seems to be mislabeled or grouped incorrectly.  These reports could then be reviewed for accuracy and corrections made as appropriate.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I love the service!

"the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken" is made by and for Pandora... it according to Pandora should know better than any other, so yes, above all others we can fault that system.

I'd love to see this resolved, as I'm listening to music from Mongolia, and the album by Hanggai called Introducing Hanggai, has all the right songs, some are glitchy like it was a bad rip, but what's most frustrating, is the album cover is of Syran Mbenza & Ensemble Rumba Kongo....................not even same origin let alone same genre....I find this to be disgraceful to both bands/musicians.

The Lyrics for Creedence Clearwater Revival Pendulum (Hey Tonight).  Wrong song lyrics

When listening to music I come across explicit music that isn't labeled this way.  There should be a feature you can click a button to mark the song as explicit that isn't labeled as such.  This will help the filter for stuff that sneaks through.  This can easily be put in the section when you click the *** button.

Anyone else think that Pandora should set up a "library errors" mailbox to report errors in track descriptions, etc.?

NO objection here! In fact, I've been clamoring/suggesting this for
years. C'mon, Pandora, make it easy for us to help YOU post accurate album
covers / artists / lyrics for your library!

It seems like such a logical feature, and not at all difficult to add a mailto: link (as long as that link is monitored and will result in correcting lyric, artist, artwork errors).

C'mon, Pandora.  Give us a way to report errors!!
