Alphabetically works best, if arranged within not to small sections like rock, blues etc.
Inadvertantly however I have "sabotaged" this system myself: Los Straitjackets are under S - but Los Walkysons and Los Crudos I filed under L as in Los ...
What I find helpful: I file records by individual members of a group right behind the group's: So on the shelf Tuxedomoon is followed by Blaine Reininger and Winston Tong.
I arrange compilations by label.

For albums,that's the way to store them. Laying them flat will usually give them warps.

I heard about that, but I was afraid this is not a "prefect" vertical position, so I was not sure if it would damage the vinyl. So you think this is fine?

I hope so,otherwise I'll have over 10,000 warped records. Seems like I would have noticed something by now ,had I'd been doing it wrong.

All my records are alphabetized in crates and bookcases scattered about my room.

My collection is stored on shelving and organised first by country of band origin (Canada, USA, UK, Europe/Other) plus a misc. section for soundtracks and oddities (some nature and school band albums). Albums are then stored alphabetically within the sections. Maybe this is a bit much, lol, but it is also how I arrange my listing.

Recently changed the way I arrange my records. Now I do it like this:

Everything from the 50's, 60's, 70's (rock, blues, soul, funk, folk) alphabetically
NWOBHM section alphabetically
European and non north american metal alphabetically
North American metal alphabetically
Metal compilations
Canadian punk
the rest of the Punk alphabetically followed by Comps
A section follows that probably only makes sense to me (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr, Flaming Lips, Coffin Break, Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Coffin Break)
Engilsh Post punk
Electronic/Ambient/Musique Concrete etcetera, etcetera (everything from Tangerine Dream to Aphex Twin toThrobbing gristle etcetera)
Country

All of the above is in two expedits a 2X4 and a 4X4

Seperate shelf contains
Soundtracks
80's
classical
