If they start adding lookup criteria I wish the Year
field in the tag would be added. That way you could
play all music from a certain year or range of years.
I know that's been brought up before but thought I'd
throw that out there again since you guys are
discussing other ways to sort music.

Assuming you're on OS X or Windows, you can build an iTunes smart
playlist with this sort of criteria which will then be visible.

personally...adding more sorts scare me. it goes against the other demands for
smaller and faster :)
