Incorrect album tags showing up


Recommended Posts

This compilation album features multiple artists like Tiesto, Alesso, Dillon Francis, etc.

Hence, all files have Album Artist tag named as 'Various Artists'

But instead of showing Various Artists under the album title, it's showing different sub-artist names. Like in this screenshot it is showing up as Alesso, sometimes it shows up as 'GTA' (another artist) instead of 'various artists'

It depends on which library category type you are using. Album Artists category will show the Album Artist tag at the top of the songs list, whereas Albums category will show a real Artist's name (taken from the Track Artist tag in one of the songs in the list).

However, personally I agree with you that even in Albums mode, it would make more sense to have the top line show the Album Artist tag (if present) and the individual songs to show the track artist tags.
