I know almost every user of a software has his own particular use cases and it is very difficult to cover them all. Nevertheless I'm convinced following suggestion will help many users.
Many melomaniacs like to work with "albums" , not with playlists at all. When I choose an album ("cd") to listen at, I start with the first track and I simply expect the following tracks will follow, like I start my cd-player. When I want to start at eg. the 5th track, my expectation is the same. When the album is finished or I stop it myself , I just want to choose a new one in my library.
My suggetsion is to have a "album mode" where I can choose an album in the library (cd on the shelf), clicking on it. Then I get an almost full screen with the album art on it, and a list of (almost) all tracks with the full track names and time clearly visible. I choose a starting point clicking on a track. Then the screen keeps showing me the same information but I want to see the which track is playing at that moment and the progress in the track. When I click on an other track, the player jumps to this track and continues to play the album. When I stop the music the album retuns in the library (the cd is back on the shelf).
A little history button or drop down would be interesting to visualise a little list with the last played albums.
Many other users like to work with playlists, that's why I suggest to have two "modes". I like to have he "playlist" mode myself too for some use cases, eg. when I want to listen and compare different versions of a music piece.
