Return Of The Organisational Dilema

So, filing albums. I’ve put them in alphabetic order by artist (virtually, not actually) and it just doesn’t work for me. Below is a list up to the end of the A’s. Now I don’t necessarily like or listen to all these albums, I just happen to have them on the shelf, but Abba next to AC/DC seems wrong, as does A Silver Mt.Zion next to Abba, and Art Garfunkel sandwiched between Arca and Atoms For Peace. There’s also ‘Deutsche Grammophon’ in there as well, which are all classical and which I feel should all stay together. I think I am going to just have to devise my own special filing system that, perhaps, will only make sense to me. This is fine of course as I’m the only one it matters to.

It won’t solve all my issues, but I am considering Alphabetical by Decade.

    A genuine headache. Alphabetical often doesn’t solve it especially when bands adjust names slightly – A Silver Mt Zion now being Thee Silver Mt Zion for ex.
    I’ve found alphabetical by genre works
