This is usually not a problem for bands with 1 or 2 albums, but recently I've been working through the discography of Motorhead trying to start with the "best" (highest reviewed) albums first. It's not exactly easy to find the order to listen to them for this methodology. See you for yourself:

There's just so many releases to sort mentally. If we could click the top of the Reviews column to sort by Reviews highest to least, that'd be useful.

It'd also be useful to click Name and sort the albums alphabetically if we're looking for a specific album.

Reviews aren't always the best criterion to go by, really. For example, ambient fans really love them some ambient, so you'll see a lot of very highly rated ambient albums that you may not find to be very good at all. I know I don't.
Whenever I go through a discography (I did Bathory once) I start with the first full length and go from there. I find it interesting to hear the evolution of the band.

Not really. Click on the full-lengths tab and it becomes quite manageable. More sorting options would be welcome anyway.

I agree, but more sorting options would be welcome anyway.


I also once suggested stealing the discogs feature of being able to go directly to an album's specific version via a drop-down menu. But plagiarism isn't nice. :lol:
