Add the possibility to differentiate soundtracks in the top album charts

When I display my top albums chart, I'd like to have the possibility to mark an album as a soundtrack. Thus to choose if the chart should list soundtracks too, only soundtracks or no soundtracks at all; just like you can choose to show 4 or 8 albums, from the last 7 days or overall. This because I usually count OSTs as a completely different type of scrobbling compared to canonical albums. Basically, I'd like both to see and count how many soundtracks I scrobbled from my library with a single clic, and to see my grid with regular LPs without soundtracks.

This also blends with the possibility to count scrobblings from an album with different artists as a single entry (i.e. not only split albums but also soundtracks with selected tracks from various artists).

An alternative could be the possibility to generically mark albums with a special tag (i.e. I could name it "soundtracks" or "Kazakhstan albums" or whatever) and have in the dropout menu a check for user personalized album marks, so that the chart could show them or not and everybody could personalize that.

This could also be interesting for people who scrobble podcasts, audiobooks or non-music audio in general, to keep it separate from the music.
