Alternative for tracking sites (Listnd, RYM, ...)

Listnd is rarely up, rym is an html page with 5 lines of code and a weak database, the other sites just allow you to rate drake and kid cudi.

So, is there any way to use musicbrainz or Listenbrainz as a tracking site with manual additions, ratings from 1 to 10, log dates and a general profile display of all your logs?


Heya! I’m not sure exactly what you mean by ‘logs’, but I think the answer is yes.

In Musicbrainz collections work well, for heaps of entity types:

A MB collection page shows ratings - if you have rated something in that list, your rating will show up as orange stars:

If you are more interested in writing reviews, CritiqueBrainz is the place for that:
But without the collection/categorizing aspect.

If you are after a more ’like songs as I listen and create playlists’ tool, more social than technical/detailed, then ListenBrainz will do that:


Great! I’ll use that. Thanks for the answer.
Is there any way, though, to rate out of 10 (2.5 stars or 5/10)?

MusicBrainz ratings are 0-100. ws/2 returns the rating as a floating point number scaled down to 0-5. If you want to rate something “5/10”, then in MusicBrainz it’s 50 out of 100.


You can only rate 1 to 5. What are you talking about?

I’m talking about the MusicBrainz database. What you see in the MusicBrainz user interface is an obfuscation of what actually happens.


You can rate in percentage.
But it’s a hacky technique (that could be the purpose of a new userscript for easier use):

You can go to an entity, like Song “Giroflé, Girofla” - MusicBrainz and, there, you copy the URL of one of the stars:

You can now change the value of the rating parameter to any percentage value between 0 (no ratings) to 100 (maximum rating), 1 being the minimum rating.

Then navigate to this custom URL.
