    I want to find a way to sync the top x amount of albums most played in the last x amount of days. I don't think smart playlists will let me do this, at least I can't find a way. Any ideas?

    Edit: Oops forgot to put iTunes in the title, hopefully it's obvious.

    Good luck on this one. A flawless solution may very well be impossible, considering that iTunes only monitors plays of individual tracks, not albums as a whole. iTunes sees no difference between playing an album all the way through and playing the tracks individually once over time with tracks from other artists shuffled in between.

    Would something like this not work? It will give you your most played tracks for the last 7 days, and you can sort the results by album.

    Of course I could be misunderstanding exactly what you're after...

    Darth.Titan, I believe what the OP is after is a Smart Playlist based on whole-album listening (correct me if I'm wrong, M87). Unfortunately, iTunes does not look at an album as an entity unto itself; it only cares about its individual constituent tracks.
