Poweramp library=>menu button=>List options=>Albums by Artist.
I appreciate your work, but please read my topic before replying. Sorting by artist is one thing, sorting by album artist is quite another. It seems that Poweramp determines an album by name only (hence multiple albums with the same name are counted as a single album) and they are sorted and labeled by the artist on the last track instead of using the Album Artist ID3 tag. I'd like the option to sort by Album Artist, not Artist. Or better yet, for the Album List to prioritize the Album Artist tag, when present, over the artist tag when using the current artist sorting option. Also, it would be nice if Poweramp could use the album artist tag when determining albums in order to keep multiple albums with the same name from being treated as the same album.
Contrary to urban_overload's experience, sorting the Album List by Artist does NOT list the album separately for each artist. (It sounds as if hes looking at the Artist List, rather than the Album List, sorted by Artist). In the Album List, the album is only listed once, as it should be, but it's labeled and sorted improperly. Take the soundtrack for Clueless
as an example, which Poweramp incorrectly sorts and labels as a Jill Sobule album. If the Album Artist tag says "Various Artists", then the album should be labeled and sorted under Various Artists, and not under Jill Sobule simply because she's the artist on the last track. The album includes 13 other tracks, none of which are by Jill Sobule.
Your lack of reading comprehension has made me question the wisdom of my purchase now. How can I put my faith in a company who is unwilling even to read the contents of a topic before replying?
