Library: Genre - Artist - Album - Songs

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to have an option to view / filter music in the library in this order: "Genre - Artist - Album - Songs"? Currently it only has this: "Genre - Songs"

I'd love to see that Option too! Genre -> Artist -> Album (-> Songs) is usually the way I select music to play.

(But it's Genre -> Albums right now...)

I completely agree with this. In fact that's the only reason I sometimes use mixzing (it gets genre mostly right, genre->artist; most players don't... genre->album or genre-> song). "genre" becomes more important for folks with large libraries and eclectic music tastes. These are situations that benefit from the extra artist filter.

On my iPod and my Squeezebox, this is how I would browse my music. When I tried it with Poweramp, I was surprised it didn't work.

Since my library on my Xoom is smaller, it isn't a huge deal since I can just browse artists, but it sould be nice to browse artists/albums only from a specific genre.

Add me to this list asking for this option. Genre/artist/album/song would be awesome. At a minimum genre/artist instead of genre/album.

I would also like to see this option: 'Genre - Artist - Album - Songs' instead of 'Genre - Album - Songs'. The latter makes no sense.

Yes! I would love to see that. My thought process is as follows:

Do I care what I listen to? No, then throw everything on as shuffle.

Do I want a specific genre? Throw that genre on, probably shuffled.

Do I want a specific artist? Throw that artist on, album by album. (This is where I REALLY can't figure out how to do what I need with Poweramp. It's like I can't put all the artist's works on in the view I'm in - instead, it displays individual albums?! I have to go to a specific sort of view just to do it. Really infuriating.

Just bumping this up again... Any chance this can be implemented? I know you can sort by Artist, but that still makes me scroll through hundreds of albums to find what I want.
