We're overjoyed to announce a new feature on AllMusic that lets you create custom lists of albums you want to check out, keep track of your favorite records from this year, or curate your all-time top desert island discs.
AllMusic adds more than a thousand new releases and reissues each week, and there isn’t enough time on the clock to check out all of them. By creating a list of albums that look interesting, you can quickly set aside up to 100 records you might want to investigate later.
Simply navigate to an album page and click the "Add To List" button. From there you can create your first list and then add up to 100 albums to that list. Lists titles can be up to 100 characters, and the optional description can be 500 characters long.
The "Existing Lists" on this screen is always shown in order of most recently updated, so if you create a new list, that will show up at the top.
What’s Your #1 Record?
Once an album is in your list, you can rank the albums into the order you prefer. This can help you zoom in on the albums you most want to check out on your next visit to the record store, or refine your desert island discs list until it is perfect.
Within the lists you have a number of ways to edit the information. You can drag and drop the albums in the order that you prefer, or re-number them using the number boxes on the left (making sure you click "update list" to save any changes.
Additionally, you can rate albums or delete them from your list. If you'd like to change the title or description of the list, click the edit icon (which looks like a pencil). Lists are displayed in alphabetical order in your profile area.
Access Your Lists On The Go
The best part of this is that you can access the lists on your phone so that you’ll never again draw a blank in the record store. Simply call up your list, and start digging for those ‘70s soul-funk LPs.
Keeping You Connected With Your Favorite Music
As music fans, we know how hard it can be to keep track of everything that comes your way, which is why we’re so excited to introduce this feature that makes it easier for you to find the albums you’re looking for.
This is only the first step. We’re working on allowing for more types of lists; a larger sortable “Collection Tracker” list of the albums you own, and methods to make your lists shareable to the world at large if you choose to do so.
