This is something I thought of while skimming through a band's discography and wanting to see the lineups for each album. It'd be a nice convenience if there were some arrows or something on the page of the album itself that would take you to the next/previous album in the discography, just to save all that time going back and forth. I don't possess any major skills with webpage editing so I don't know how hard that would be to install that feature onto every band on this album (probably hard now that I think about it) but it's just something I thought of.

Sorry if this was something previously suggested, I am new here.

Yes!!  I've long wanted that feature.  I think the hardest thing would be defining what the next album is.  Next album in the same category?  Next album chronologically?  Hmmm...

Back in the day, all the albums (at least within that category...not sure it was every single one...too much time has elapsed for my memory) were listed on the side of the page when viewing a specific album, which made navigation quite easy.

If we could get that back, that'd be great. I can't recall why it was removed though.

That's exactly what I was thinking reading the OP. I never understood why that feature was canceled, I think it was about 6 or 7 years ago. I remember it like you Phil, when browsing to a specific album all the albums from that category (studio, live, compilations) were listed on the right side of the page. Maybe it became a problem for bands with big discographies? Anyway that would be great going back to that but instead of showing the album's covers, there should be links to them.
But taking into consideration that this site is stuck the way it is for years without developing, evolving or being improved I doubt that we will ever see a change.

I believe you had the option to show the album covers or not show them and just have the titles displayed.

And in regards to your last line...too true.
