Make foobar playback order options mimick Poweramp

I’ve been struggling to get Foobar to play shuffle in the right way. Like after selecting a track, having it return to previous position in the playlist and stuff like that. I hear repetitions even though I’m not using the random but the shuffle (track) option after restarting. I don’t like using the Randomize option either.

In Poweramp (the Android app) the playback options are just perfect. Is there any plug-in that can get me that functionality the way it’s implemented in Poweramp on Foobar? Or an approximate version of it?

I start by playing (for example) an album.
While listening, I browse through the library and find a few songs that I want to interrupt normal playback and listen to, which I add to the temporary 'Queue'.
After the currently playing song from my album has finished, the Queue commences playback and it continues until the last enqueued song has been played.
When the Queue has finished, playback returns to normal album mode (playing the next song in the album that I was originally listening to).
If I want to enqueue any more songs to again interrupt my normal album listening, I go back and repeat step 2. The new songs again start playing after the current album song is done.
