Albums with the same name appears grouped.

Hi, not sure what causes this behavior:

I have the habit of adding musics to my library in an album called "From The Web" whenever I download something and store it under the artist ID.

I would do this for many different artists but not as one compilation album. Ie:

Artist 1/From The Web/

Artist 2/From The Web/

Artist 3/From The Web/

However, when I add the album to the play list, or when I try to show the album, all the songs from all the albums "From The Web" from all the artists show as one big compilation.

    Make sure the album artist tag is set. When it is present, it will group by the album name and album artist; without it, just the album name will be used. I don't believe the artist tag itself is sufficient, as it could cause an album to be split up unnecessarily when an album has different artists (A, A feat. B., A feat. C, etc.).

  • Tags will do it and I'd also suggest for absolute clarity putting the album title like 'artist - from the web'.

    Thanks 💪, I'll give it a try.

    Just to be sure, if I do it in ITunes, astiga will catch all the changes?

    I would assume so, yes. So far I have not heard of any case where it was otherwise.
