Spotify is working on changing the limits tied to albums and the songs that get saved with them.
Spotify dev has said:
"The limit of 10000 will probably not be raised, we're looking into separating album saves they don't count as songs. You will be alble to collect more albums without reaching this limit and also be able to filter out full albums on the Albums tab and hide full albums on the Songs tab to feel more in control."

This 10,000 song limit could be a complete deal breaker for me. I love Spotify. I'm a huge fan. But this one little change could drive me away.
I like A LOT of music. In the previous version, I had over 10,000 songs starred and that list was growing steadily. In this new release (which is awesome in every other way) I realized that I had some work laid out for me in that I, since I could no longer "star" tracks, was going to have to move all of my favorite music from my huge starred list into the new "Saved" pattern. That process alone was a huge pain in the ass because if you try to move more than a couple hundred tracks at a time the app beach-balls forever (yep, OSX).
So after spending the better part of an hour moving tracks from the starred list in small packs over to the new saved/your-music section, I silently hit the 10,000 track limit. It took me quite a while to figure out exactly why this process stopped working and a quick Google search informed me that there was this 10,000 track limit now being enforced.
Now I have most of my favorite music in the "Your Music" section and some stuff still in the old Starred list. What am I supposed to do with the remaining Starred tracks? I can't "Star" anything else. You removed the functionality completely. You've basically just hung me out to dry and given me the finger at the same time.
I can tell you that folks like me...the real music freaks...the people who really see value in your service...they're not going to enjoy this new limit. I'm giving you $120 a year and you're telling me how much music I can like?
With this new version, you've taken 2 steps forward and 1 giant leap backward. I can tell you with certainty that your competitors do not have a 10,000 song limit...which makes them look pretty darn attractive now. Who cares how big your library of music is if I can only manage 10,000 of those songs?
