    I want to write a playlist for my iPhone that will only have my most popular music (easy, right?), but I want it all by album, not by song. Here's what I have so far:

    >Rule: Album | is not | %%%%% (since there's no album that could possibly be named something close to that.)
    >Limit to | 6500 | MB | selected by | most often played

    How can I have it be the albums all put in together instead of the songs?

    Thanks!

    There is no good way to do it. I remember some kind of basic workaround a while back but I don't remember exactly.

    Yeah, because I'd rather have the entire album on my phone instead of just my favorite two or three songs from it.

    Sorry, I see what you mean now.

    Choose to find your songs by either rating, or album rating, of 3 or 4 stars I guess, that'll be your best stuff. Limit it to 6500MB as you want, but then choose "selected by album".

    Seems to work for me.

    That would be great! but I don't use the start ratings unfortunately.
