    I just sent this Enhancement Request to Apple:


    Would anyone else around here be interested in something like this or in something similar?

    iTunes>Preferences>Playback>Shuffle (songs, albums, groupings). That kind of thing? ;)

    Rating albums is possible too, just put iTunes into album display mode and a rating appears below the album art on the left. That rating is independent of the ratings for individual songs, though it will fill in a rating if you've rated most or all of the songs on the album.

    I'm hoping for something a little less cumbersome. There's a "shuffle" button ... why not a "shuffle albums" button?

    iPod touch. :p

    I've never used that view, but wow. Thanks. I wonder why this isn't shown on the Coverflow view?

    Now they just need to simplify the "pick a random album" or "pick all albums with 3+ stars" functionality. :)

    iTunes even uses a different star on each song to indicate how/where that rating was made.
