You don't have to create playlists for every album that would be silly. 
MythMusic has an active playlist or play queue you add tracks to. You 
basically find the album you want to play or a track from it and then 
add the tracks from the album to the active play list. You can find the 
album by browsing through your music on the  Playlist Editor - Tree or 
Gallery views or use the search view to find a track from the album then 
use the Quick playlist -> Tracks from Current Album option. If it's an 
album you play regularly you could save the active playlist to a regular 
playlist or create a Smart Playlist which would allow you to quickly add 
the album to the active playlist later.

Once you begin to understand how it works it becomes easy find what you 
want to play simply by browsing through the music tree and adding or 
replacing the tracks on the active play list.
