Access to Your Music Collection in Titanium with SlidingAlbums

However, due to its versatility, there are many people who still use Titanium as their primary UI. To help these users make the best out of their UIs, XDA member AndrewSpec released SlidingAlbum, which basically organizes your music collection and makes it available to you directly from Titanium, without making you travel through menus in a player.

You can find more information in the application thread.
