Albums by Artist [not in library]

It’d be great if the artist page had a section showing albums that are by the artist, but not in the library, so i could see what I’m missing.

It is there, the lower section.
I have two albums with Helge Lien, Tidal has seven more, plus several appearances and production:

That might be a tidal only feature, i don’t see that, and presumably that only shows albums available in tidal.

Ah, you would like to know all albums in the universe that you don’t have?
I imagine it would be difficult for Roon to get such a list.

Metadata is what Roon prides themselves on, so seems like a good fit. If i buy and album and add it my library, then they know about [most of the time] so they could at least show those. Throw in some links to Amazon and make some referalal money as well.

Never realized that this info doesn’t show when you don’t have a Tidal account. You miss a lot here. Roon could at least provide the information in some way, even when it is not accessible or you just get a Tidal account. And when you are using it just to “preview” albums you might just get the cheapest subscription wich still sounds pretty good, at least good enough to “preview”

I really don’t get it that anyone who calls him/her self a serious music lover does not have a subscription on a streaming service nowadays. There are not many things in life that provides so much pleasure for the money as a subscription on a streaming service. Even if you only want to buy and listen to highres music it is still a giant source for music exploration. If I had only $10 per month to spend and I had to choose between Roon for only my own library or a subscription on a streaming service it would most definatly be the latter. Having both is best of both worlds. Just do it, you won’t regret it.

Each to their own. TIDAL is not good for the music I listen to, so I let my subscription lapse. If Roon supported Deezer I would use that, but until they do, I am stuck. For my money Roon is a much better value proposition than TIDAL. Of course my collection is a decent size and pretty niche, YMMV.

So, I would second this feature request. The data exists in various DBs (freedb, etc), and Roon possibly already has the data (aggregated across everyone’s collections).

Totally agree on data collection from other sources. Like I said I was pretty much amazed that Roon doesn’t show any of this info without a Tidal account.

My library is also pretty niche, roughly 10% of my collection is not being recognized by the Roon database or Tidal. I also have a Deezer account but I have to say that while Tidal seems to be more focussed on hiphop and r&b and Deezer more on indie they both provide about 95% the same content once you get past their own interface. That’s where Roon comes in to play.

Yes, I have also requested this, oh, around…2 years ago :smiley:

There are also other existing threads on this, e.g.:

But yes, I would still like this feature very much. Not to show all albums in the universe that I don’t have, just those by an artist that I do already have in my library.
