iPod Setup Using Album Smart Playlists?

I have had an iPod for a few years now, but have only just stumbled across this site.

does everybody only use smart playlists to create a selection of random/never played songs?

or like me use smart playlists to house each album?

i have well over 5000 songs on my iPod and browsing through the artist menu causes problems because i have quiet a few complilations containing one song from many different artists. so the artists list is huge.

i very much like to be able to get to the album i want quickly and not have many sub menus to click through to get to where i want, like when building a website i try to follow the 3 clicks rule. anymore and people get bored or lost!

am i missing something, have read a few posts on here i dont seem to making the best use of my iPod.

any thoughts?

How would this be any different than the iPod's built in Browse by Album functionality?

Chuckeye, he said he likes to go through as few menus as possible, and i assume he ususually listens to music from the "playlist" sub menu so making the albums easily accesible from the playlist menu is a smart idea.

dpc, welcome to smartplaylists! it's a generally underappreciated and mostly unknown feature of iTunes that not many end users seem to make use of.

nice use of SPL's

Settings -> Main Menu -> Albums: On. Makes a hell of a lot more sense than making 1700+ smart playlists, one for each album I have in my collection...
