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?
I was really excited to get the Your Music update, until I learned of the 10,000 song limit. What? That completely defeats the purpose of having this feature. I have all my playlists in a folder, and my library was at 92,000+ tracks. Why do I need Your Music now? I don't understand putting a limit on it.
What exactly is the point of having an area called "Your Music" (My Music) if it can't actually hold My Music? It sounds like your suggested solution to this is that I should enjoy less music. That's not going to work for me. If I'm going to have to break the music I like into multiple playlists (each less than 10,000 tracks) then what use can I possible get from the "Your Music" feature? If it can't hold all of my music then it's going to hold none of my music as it doesn't make any sense to put SOME of the music that I like into that area and not the rest of it.
Just hit this limit. I had been testing RDIO and considering switching simply to have a better way to manage my collection. Then I heard of this update and decided wait. I was super excited when it was released and I finally received it this week. Now, I'm not even half way through the albums I want to save and I've hit the limit. I can't imagine whoever made this design decision considering users. Utterly terrible decision rendering this feature nearly useless for me.
Back to album playlists and testing RDIO. Figure I'll switch now since the RDIO user experience is so much better.
Yeah this update is a joke. thx God i've just checked Rdio (i've heard some new they were acquired by Spotify and are no more but that's not true) and heard on cnet about itunes streaming service. I was so happy to see ability to save albums but hitted limit in moments. There should be ability to save your albums as a think you like to listen and ability to save as offline albums. But ofc even with that limit of 10000 songs is purely retarded. Is it still 3333 track per device? And btw I just love fanboys who don't have a clue what topic is about posting "zero clue posts" that everything is fine.
I had 3500 starred songs. When i found out the stars functionality was gone and found the Your Music section i invested almost two days walking trough al my favourite artists and albums. Resulting in saving a lot more then my orginal starred list. But, also hit the ceiling i presume... 10,000??? That is way to little. I saved about 800 albums. That is NOT a lot.
Is there an official reaction from spotify regarding this problem?
