I arrange my CDs in the order that I bought/received them. To track (lol) my musical journey.
Are you serious or are you quoting John Cusack's character, Rob Gordon, from High Fidelity?

... so anyway in the middle of the movie Rob Gordon has something like a mid-life crisis and starts arranging his record collection time-wise, according to acquisition, and starts reminiscing over a pile of records.

I see! I could dig that....John Cusack always has that sortof "here I am standing here with my mouth open a lot being all stressed...and you can't really tell whether I'm young or old because I still have black hair and really undistinguished features".

I swear he said that once...in an interview..

I used to file everything alphabetically, but it was annoying to have Beatles albums, which I never listen to, cluttering up the top shelf, not to mention the embarrasing albums like the Joan Armatrading album a friend bought for me. So now I organize everything based on:
1. How much I like it
2. How often I listen to it

#2 is more important. I'm extremely lazy and don't feel like wading through the bottom shelf everytime I want to listen to XTC or X-Ray Spex, which is pretty often, so I just put those albums up on the top shelf. Problem solved.

It's also more interesting because I'm the only one who can find anything, unless someone else knows my tastes pretty well and can guess that Who's Next will be somewhere near the top while Live At Leeds will be somewhere closer to the floor.
I've got all my CD's sorted alphabetically, but I get around the "clutter" problem by having two sections: My favourite bands/artist in one section, the rest in the other.
