The plan for the new charts page was to make it more dynamic by including location and tag/genre filtering. In addition to this we were considering intergrating personal user listening charts. Although user charts were for a later iteration, this wireframe needed to workout the overall IA to prepare for the later development work.
I’ve been working on a refresh of the “Charts” section of the Last.fm site, including a new filtering options for “Hype”, “Top Artists” and “Top Loved Track”. This first launch only includes filtering by date, a later release will include “genre” and “location” filters, so that you’ll be able to can see the best “electronic” music or “black death metal” in your home town.
