This may alreay be possible and if it is great, please tell me how.

I often use Random to "Scan" my music. I don't know what I'm in the mood for until I hear it. So I start random play and do next, next, next until I find what I want.

It would be so nice if there was a shortcut (single IR key) that I could now ask the system to play the album of the currently song playing.

This would really make things so nice.

It would seem very easy to do if it does not exist already.

Right now I have to often go to Now Playing, Scroll down to what album it is, then go browse or search for it (sometimes 15 clicks).

Try pressing play at this point rather than browse or search for the
album

I also listen to my music the same way. A solution I found to fixate on an album or an artist when listening randomly to songs is with the Fishbone skin. Click on the Album or Artist (yellow links) in the player area in the top right area of the browser, and you will automatically jump directly to that Artist or Album in the left panel. From there you can click on "All Songs" to play everything. It only takes 2 clicks in total. Try it, you'll like it!
