My Question or Issue

When I go Library -> Tracks -> Shuffle, most of the time not all tracks are shuffled, but only those of a few artists. It works more like "Give me artist radio of random artists A, B and C". I want to shuffle my entire library! How can I achieve that?

I have this same issue and it's so irritating! I've got thousands of artists in my library and shuffle definitely gives some preferential treatment to a select few artists. I want a totally equal probability of any song in my library playing next but it feels like there's some "intelligent" algorithm trying to pick things I've recently added to my library or things I've recently listend to.

Please, please Spotify, just strip it back, make it simple. Shuffle all songs.
