Fill a playlist with user-set number of randomly selected full albums

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will assemble a user-set number of randomly selected full albums to a playlist. The "Some Random Albums" playlist will be re-created on successive launches unless you choose to append additional random albums to the existing "Some Random Albums" playlist. (A "full album" is a set of tracks with the same album name, track count and disc number and where the number of these tracks is equal to the common track count; it will not select all the disks in a multi-disk collection, just one of them; accurate tags are a must!)

Assign it a keyboard shortcut.

Also see Play Random Album and Make Mega Playlist.
