FIRSTLY i want to say, Madsonic is my favorite overall, and in many specific ways...
So i feel funny 'complaining'. Madsonic is VERY ALBUM-cenric, and ARTISTS-centric. Those aspect are good.
My library serves a family of NINE people. So our music collection is very SONG-centric. We try to add everybody's favorites SONGS as we discover them. There seems to be no elegant, efficient, non-manual-labor way of getting a list of most recently added SONGS.
Kids get music from all kinds of sources. Sometimes the tags aren't complete. Right now the only way i can see to browse all the songs they are dumping into out 'Music' folder is that they appear alllll the way at the bottom of the side pane in the web client. Often in the form of "artist song.mp3", or "long mix name.mp3" (with no 'Artist' 'Album'). How do i gracefully browse, search, etc. these?
The Madsonic paradigm seems to prefer generating lists of Albums, and Artists. There seems ot be no efficient/graceful way of dealing with loose songs.
For example, in iTunes, or Song Bird, or Banshee, or whatever, you can get a list of sings, and sort them by recently added, or times played, or starred, etc...
In madsonic that seems to not exists.
Have i just not understood the paradigm?
