[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.

Good point @user-removed - Spotify has to decide if they want to target the market of "power collectors". A small amount in percentage of users but once you have them, leaving will be an immense effort for them. While people start considering streaming as the default way of listening to music, Spotify has a big chance to become more than a nice listening add-on.

This is EXACTLY the feature I’ve been crying for. Perfectly illustrated as well. Spotify, please implement!

Let's try to get Spotify to give us this feature. What's not to like about it?

For God sakes do this, or something! Some way to organize saved albums other than literally 500 albums alphabetically in one folder. This is the only problem with spotify, but it's a huge problem. It makes building a music collection in the app so difficult!

So right. I just cannot understand why this is not a standard feature built in from day one. When those 500 albums are totally different genres it makes even more sense to be able to organise them in different folders.

This would be really helpful and could be used for managing playlists as well

You are able to create folders and can put your playlists into these. 

The presented feature is needed for albums.
