They're actually, IMO, almost entirely the same.
A classical recording is a good example -- unlike popular music, the
tracks on the album are often merely segments of a larger whole, f.e.
"Beethoven's Fifth" is comprised of four movements. All of the same
information that can be applied to a "track" can be applied to an
"album" or "playlist". They're really just divisions of a larger
whole. The only information I could see an album of playlist needing
that a track wouldn't would be: # of tracks and # of discs.
