export iTunes album list

Anyone know a method for exporting a list of albums in your iTunes library?

I know about exporting the song list which I can then easily import into Excel which is estentially what I want to do but I only want a list of albums. As it is now I export the song list (9,000+) and then in Excel I have to delete all but one song from each album to get the list I want. With that many songs it takes a long time to get the list down to the ~475 albums I have.

I also see the export to an xml file option but have no idea how to manipulate an xml file.

Any tips would be appreciated.

The simplest solution I can come up with is to use a database app like FileMaker and make a list of unique album names to eliminate overlaps. Excel might be able to do that too, but I'm not sure.

I've already got an online iTunes database set up. Wouldn't take me more than a few minutes to add a "dump albums" feature to it, if you want.
