You can implement a source for such a system. I.e. implement a

information. EMMS can interact with dired in a very similar

EMMS doesn't know about albums. Or artists. Or, actually, anything
but "tracks". You'd have to create a list of all tracks yourself
somehow, and then walk that list to sort them by album. EMMS
doesn't assume all tracks are in albums. EMMS doesn't assume
anything about tracks, actually. :-)
