There is a duplicate album on this profile: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/artist/blaspheme

Unfortunately I can't delete it as clicking on it redirects to the second copy, which by Sod's Law is the one with a rating, which would be lost if I deleted that one instead.

I had exactly the same proble with a Killswitch Engage album when I got to that entry. Couldn't figure it out. For some reason Thatcher just went ahead and deleted and everything turned out okay!?

So you think I should just chance it and delete the entry I can get to? It would be a shame to lose the rating if it goes pear-shaped. I know it's only one, but there are a lot of entries with precious few ratings so even one would be a loss. And I don't think the member who left it is around anymore.

I did wonder if I could just rename the one that can be reached to get to the other one, but that didn't work. Still redirects. Disapprove

I'll forward this to M@X (unless you already did so Chris?), he should be able to fix this without losing the rating.

Got another one:

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/limelight/limelight

A second self-titled album marked as 1990 redirects to the real album from 1980. Again, the one with the rating is the one that can be accessed, so I don't want to just delete it.
