The best way of accomplishing retrieval of albums and other queries
From a remote mpd process would probably be to create an
emms-source-mpd.el file.  It would define sources such as "mpd-album"
(prompt for a particular album, perhaps from an autogenerated list),
"mpd-artist", etc.

Maybe a source like "mpd-all-albums" could be defined as well, that
inserts all known albums into the current MusicPD playlist, using the
custom track type 'mpd-album for each entry.  Then, when hitting RET
on an album, emms-player-mpd.el could recognize the type, and fetch
the corresponding album into a new buffer.

A scoring mechanism (i.e. "i hate this album/track" or "i like this
album/track") seems to exist already in emms-score.el.

Once exams are done (2 weeks), I might take a look at that.  Feel free
to beat me to it :^) .
