iTunes 7.4 brings back album love. Using the rating system I recommended in iTunes Zero, you can create some great new smart playlists with album ratings:
Albums with greater than 3 stars.
Usually these albums have consistently great tracks. It’s useful to have these within easy reach in iTunes.
Yes Michael, I was surprised too. Ok, not really. I admit it.
Albums with less than 3 stars.
Time to delete them? You never really liked these anyway.
What? You mean I don’t like Moby side projects?!
Albums with 3 stars.
Sometimes you THINK these albums are great, but some of them can coast by on the strength of one or two tracks.
Yes, Daft Punk, even you.
Albums with higher than 3 stars, but with tracks you haven’t listened to in a while.
You say you love them, but you never take them out anymore.
I guess I stopped listening to this one after the Andy Kaufman movie came out.
I Can Care Less
Albums with LESS than 3 stars with tracks that you haven’t listened to in a while.
It’s likely that you can delete, sell, or trade these albums without it ever bothering you.
Hopefully I can get this Fischerspooner CD to emerge right into a Lala.com envelope.
