I thought I was too nerd to be someone who just needs to organize a music collection in a particular way. You make me feel ambiguously good and bad about myself. Don't take it the wrong way but it makes me feel good to know that I am not the nerdiest or most OCD person I've known (you know that some people think it's unhealthy and frowned upon, so I try my best to avoid people noticing it in me). At the same time, you make me feel bad about myself for not being able to achieve the same level of detail you have painstakingly and meticulously put upon in your collection.
Also, it makes me guilty because 60% of my music I downloaded for free and 10% I copied from friends. I only bought 30% of my total collections. I have already sold or given away my physical CDs after ripping them and now they are stored in either WAV or FLAC format totaling to about 400 GB of storage.
You can get any album that you want out there if you only know where or how to look but kudos to you for not going down that easy road. It's a trap and once you've done it, you won't be able to get away from it.
I am using JRiver Media Center (yes, I paid for it) and I have thousands of playlists I have created in it. It is not as fancy as the one you have but I think I can live with it.
BTW, with an enormous collection that you have, how do you suppose to listen to them all? You know if you played your collections continuously without ever stopping, you would be done in about 5 years.
