When clicking the link "Instrumental" for an instrumental track, then hiding the frame, the link changes to "Show lyrics", instead of "Instrumental".

That's because instrumental tracks by definition don't have lyrics. Some songs have liner notes which are fine to add to that field, but I think this is a known, very minor bug that doesn't affect that many entries, hence pretty far down the list of wanted things.

Hey, thanks for your answer.
You're right, it's purely cosmetics, so no big deal.

2. Maybe we can create a list of bands that haven't been modified after a certain number of years? I know I've come across stuff that hasn't been updated in several years, and while some may not get updated, like an obscure band that was only mentioned once in a review somewhere, it might be good to keep as much as we can up to date.

For what it's worth, I think this is a really good idea. I'm not sure how feasible it is, though, or if it'd be possible to have the feature divided per status "active, unknown, and split-up". That way the issue oogboog mentions about obscure (or defunct) bands shouldn't be a big problem. Dunno, but I like the idea.

I dunno if this is the proper thread for this and/or if this suggestion has already been discussed.

I think it would be cool if the fact that a song was a cover was listed as, like, a subtitle instead of in the actual song title field. I also think it'd be cool if band links could be added for covers of bands that are on the Archives. That way if a band called Inferno was covered, it would save me from having to sift through all twenty-ish bands with that name or doing an advanced search.

Greetings all, long time lurker, first time poster. I've seen a couple other posts along these same lines, but I'd like to reiterate the suggestion of being able to search & sort albums by number of reviews. There's a Chrome add-on to do this with Amazon search results, and it's a huge help for finding the most popular and best options. I think adding sort by number of reviews would be a major help to a lot of metal fans, not just newbies.

Thanks for listening to my .02¢

Definitely not the first time I have seen that suggestion. The advanced search comes up with too many unknown demos from 1985 that are nowhere to be found, causing inconvenience when searching music by genre. I would also like to +1 the idea.
