    I've tried out a few different music players, cubed, mixzing and the stock music player and I can't seem to figure out if there is any way for the apps to just mix up the order of my albums and play them like that. The shuffle features just mix up all the songs from all the albums, but I want to listen to a whole album at a time, just don't want to pick the order the albums come up in if that makes sense.

    Is there a way to do this with any music players?

    Using btunes, you can shuffle all songs. I know it doesn't specifically address your needs but it may work for you. And the player is awesome:D

    I'm looking for the same thing... sorry I haven't found anything that will do it yet el gringo. iPods can do this - I have about the oldest iPod in the world and it can do it - and that's how I used to listen to my music at work. I'd rather not have to go back to that though.

    I have also, for a long time, been looking for a "shuffle by album" android player. Last week I searched again and found a winner.
    GoneMAD Music Player has a "Play random album" feature; to activate it go to [Preferences--Now Playing--Shuffle Long Press Action] and select "Play Random Album".
    To make it continue to play random albums, go to [Preferences--Queue--On Queue Completion] and select "Play Random Album".
    Then go to the Now Playing screen, touch and hold the shuffle button at the bottom. Your results will be all-but-indistinguishable from Apple's "Shuffle By Album" on the iPod.
    GoneMAD comes with a 14-day free trial, which I'm going to run out and then I'll probably pay the $3.99 to keep it. As far as I can tell, it's currently the only Android player that does anything like this. It also plays a wide variety of file types besides .mp3, including FLAC and OGG.

    Rocket Music Player, mentioned by somebody else in another thread, also shuffles albums - AND you can limit the shuffling to only the albums in a selected playlist. GoneMAD shuffles every album in the library as far as I can tell; no way to restrict the pool.

    I think Rocket's going to get my dollars before GM does.
