Have you ever tried listen to your music collection by the date? Or just some decade (for example 60' or 70')? I'm making a chart (day, month, year) and I have currently about 800 albums. I miss some dates so if someone has a similar table, we can make exchange.

Me neither. Why would I listen to my CDs in date order?

I tried this a couple times back in the day but usually got bored before a single day was out, let alone how long it would take me to actually go through my collection chronologically.

My collection is catalogued at RYM so it's pretty negligible to view it sorted by date.

I don't think I could do this.  Too much sorting.

I have been going through my collection alphabetically by band for the past few years.  I tend to listen to each band in chronological order, but I don't track the specific dates of release, just the years.

Since some of my records are anthologies from bands or even record catalogues, it would be rather complex to range my records by the date: in which decade could I classify a compilation of Deep Purple or Black Sabbath going from the late 60's to nowadays?

I've got over 1500 CDs now.  In about the mid '90's I started to log them in to Excel, but I didn't start including added dates unil 1999.  I was just doing an alphabetical sort every 100 titles and then numbering them in a batch.  I've never done an acquisition order listening exercise, partly because I haven't kept up with that but also because I don't find that mode particularly interesting as I already did that in real time.  Right now I'm doing a reverse chronological shuffle.  It's 1998, so I pull all of those titles into a separate spreadsheet and use the RANDBETWEEN function to pick the listening order.  Of course I'm not too anal about it.  I'll skip a title and come back to it if I'm not in the mood for it when it comes up, but I'll complete the year before moving on to the next one.  Again not being anal about it, I will intersperse the randomized revearse year listening with whatever the hell I want to listen to if I don't want to do the title the randomizer comes up with.  In the end my goal is to be sure that sooner or later everything gets listened to, or there's no point in having them in my collection.  Unfortunately the titles I would be most likely to sell of wouldn't fetch much.

I don't bother to rate anything, big waste of time in my opinion.

You know whether you like anything or not.   What's the damned point?  Are you trying to impress others?  Are you trying to impress yourself?
