Better Album Year Sorting?

Recommended Posts

As much as I love Poweramp, the one thing that bugs me is the fact that two albums by the same artist with the same release year always get sorted alphabetically. For instance, I have the albums "High Voltage" and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" by AC/DC, which both came out in the same year. However, HV was released first, but DDDDC appears first in the sorting under AC/DC's page of albums. 

Is there a way to fix this, or perhaps a certain way I should be labeling these albums in Windows Explorer? It's only a minor annoyance, but I think it's worth posting about.

Thanks for the help.

If you use folder sorting, you can just rename the folder names (adding the year at the start of the name) to force them to sort the way you want them to. The list view and Player screen will still show tag Title/Artist/etc so you won't see the adjusted name within the app, it will only affect the sort order.
