Is there a way to create a smart playlist that consists of random albums and when I sync my iPod touch, will remove the music I just heard and replace it with new randomly chosen albums?

If not, is there anything close? I'd like to play music in album order, hear complete albums and hear music I have not heard recently.

I'm on Windows, so Mac plugins wouldn't work.

Perhaps something like this

Smart playlist

  • That looks like it should work. I'll test and come back. Last time I tried something like that, it chose songs rather than albums. Has something changed or am I misremembering?

  • last played is not in the last _ days should probably be a longer period. What does 'date added' add to the mix?

  • When you typed Album my mind thought Song, sorry. I haven't purchased an Album in a long time. So this might not work for you. You could try changing "by random" to "by album" and see what that does. I don't have a way to test that since I don't any albums. I post example values (0 days, 25 items). You should play with those values to achieve your desired affect.
