Desperately Wanting

An album is coming soon, I promise. And this post is relevant, emerging from my recent album listening. Today I discovered a new pet peeve.

Did you know that iTunes does not let you rate an album separately from song ratings, but gives it an average number of stars based on your rating of its songs. This is a problem. Don’t they realize that an album can be more (or less!) than the sum of its parts?

That was my lame music-snob-moment of the day. Am I the only one that this bothers? Possibly. But one deeply committed, involved iTunes user should be enough.
