[Your Music] Creating "Collections" of Albums

I have an idea that could make using Spotify better for people who put a lot of effort into managing their music libraries (and for everyone else as well).

The idea is simple: Being able to create collections or lists of whole albums. Of course you could just add albums to regular playlists but then it just adds the songs separately, which is messy, so you can't easily see which or how many albums are there in the list or checking if there are missing songs.

By having album collections we could easily see which albums are added to them and it would make it quicker to select certain albums for downloading by toggling the download button of a collection containing them. We could also re-order the list of albums quicker than re-ordering a simple playlist of consecutive albums broken down to songs.

 

This would also make it possible to listen to certain albums in a specific or even random order without having to add every album to the queue one by one.

This needs to happen. Also, MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO PUBLISH YOUR ENTIRE ALBUM COLLECTION. Someone suggested this back in 2013 and it's still not implemented. 

 

If i want to share my collection with my friends i'd have to make a separate playlist of each album and make that public, WHY THE **bleep** SHOULDN'T WE BE ABLE TO TURN OUR WHOLE LIBRARY PUBLIC?

This is a brilliant idea and would raise Spotify above it competitors with regards ease of use.

Greetings!

There is a possible workaround before it'd be implemented, if ever.

Create a folder where to store your collection of albums, find your album, save in a playlist, choose to create a new one, the default playlist name would be "<artist name> - <album title>".

You got it (works on iOS, at least :) ).

I know, it's unbelievable that such a basic and simple feature as being able to sort albums into different genre is not offered by Spotify!
