I know it would be kinda a pain, but I'd like to see a notation if an album is sung in a language other than English. I was recently adding Earthshaker to my Amazon wishlist, cause stylistically they seem quite good and MOST of their song titles were in English and I came across a review that said the band was especially relevant if you understand Japanese because that's the language they sing in. I don't so I had to go back and delete the albums that I added. Bit annoying.

That would take a fair bit of doing, not to mention that it really would only be applicable to about 2% of the listings on HH.

 

Any time you see that there is even ONE song title on an album that isn't in English, it should be an indicator that you need to investigate further, and most Earthshaker albums have several non-English titled tracks.

 

A quick jump over to Youtube can usually confirm what language a given band sings in.

Hmmm I didn't realize it would be such a small percentage. I usually go by the song titles, if there's even three or four songs in a foreign language I'm OK with that. I just don't want to buy an entire album that's not in English. I'm speaking strictly for myself now, but my "computer" is my phone and because of data usage caps I can't always get YouTube videos to load. I do appreciate the feedback though and I love the site. After browsing it for years it's very cool to be participating.
