[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.

I can't believe every Spotify user hasn't cast their vote for this. What is a more basic idea than being able to file your albums by genres. Its a no brainer to me!

Been trying to get this idea implimented for several months and can't understand why it's not standard from day one that Spotify was launched!

I've been "pushing" for this idea on this and other threads since July 2015, and nothing has happened, not even an acknowledgment from Spotify. They will only listen to the push of numerous closed wallets.

Hate having to remove albums just to download more music...also having trouble with having to redownload albums I already downloaded only to be told I had reached my limit, but I had previously downloaded them already.8)

**bleep** YESS!!

There's no point in having all albums on earth available to you if you can't organize them.

 

If this is implemented, people will make collections of genres/moods that will actually help spotify identify similarities between albums. :)
