So when I'm listening through an album occasionally I like to read through the lyrics along with it, and MA is great for this. Just open all the lyric tabs and away we go.

However I find it slightly annoying that the album art on the right side scrolls off when I get down the lyrics page, particularly for long songs. The album art is the perfect thing in the world to look at during instrumental breaks. Would it be possible in the future to get a third frame that stays stationary like the menu on the left exclusively for album art? It's not like the right side of the screen looks any better black, ya know?

Small complaint but I'm curious to hear opinions on my suggestion.

I take your lack of artwork to look at is because you're streaming?
Seems like a low priority to implement, and to be honest not really of great value. You could easily have another tab open with even better options outside MA. More important updates would be to have multiple labels listed to a release, since many are collaborations between more than one label.

I don't lack the artwork at all (?) and no, I don't use streaming services.

I'm merely suggesting it's more pleasant to be able to look at the album art seamlessly between reading lyric verses. I'm fucking lazy, I ain't got time to be clicking or scrolling back and forth.

Love the attitude of "if MA's not good enough just use another website" though lmao.

Then I don't understand the need.

It's not an attitude, it's more a fact :)
MA has never been big on images, was never really the point.
Would love to see that part expanded at some point though, to more images/logos/album scans per band page, but I imagine the server costs are massive.

Uh, Helvede I think you misunderstood him.

KrigareTjovane, is your question whether the album art could track down the page? Because that's certainly something I can pass onto HB.

Hmm, you could just close the lyrics for the songs that are over so that it doesn't scroll so much, right?
