Lightbulb Amazon Echo issue - Foo related.

A long the same lines of having a Spotify issue (locked thread!!), whenever I ask Alexa to play 'Concrete and Gold' it plays the song Concrete and Gold not the start of the album !!!

Any help Foo Fans?! This is the second Foo album where the album title shares the same name as one of it's residing songs!

What a pickle.

So saying something like play the entire album doesn't work?

When I say "Alexa, play Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold from Spotify" it plays the song Concrete and Gold.

Maybe saying "Alexa, play Foo Fighters album Concrete and Gold from Spotify" could work.

....thanks for the help ladies

I had the same issue with asking it to play Villians album by Queens of the stone age.

Got really complicated as I had to run through the "Alexa play villians ALBUM by Queens of the Stone age FROM SPOTIFY"

And it would either play the song

Or tell me that I needed to subscribe to Amazon music

No Alexa, I want the album. From Spotify. You can do this.

We'd get there in the end. But its painful

I bet if you sent them feedback about this, they would fix it eventually (especially if they hear it from multiple folks).

The fix seems a simple programming "if/then" statement ... if both song & album exist, then ask which one is desired.
