  • I'm sure it's what you already mean, but just to be captain obvious, two separate views of "Album" and "Album Artist".

    Yes this would be great, it would prevent albums with "artist feat. other artist" tracks from getting fragmented

  • I was about to post this exact request but seen it here so not going to re-post :D... but yeah no this is needed libraries would be so much cleaner with this view type

    Yes with lots of compilations, they make the artist view less useful to navigate. An Album Artist view sorts that immediately. It's then up to us to tag the music appropriately. Thanks for considering it.

    @Coffee They should not get fragmented at the moment. The album artist is already taken into account when browsing for artists (e.g., the page of an artist X contains both songs where X is the artist and where X is the album artist).

    Implemented - the artist view now prioritises the album artist tag, and only uses the artist tag if no album artist was entered for that file.
