Today I notices the phenomena I reported about here (thanks again, Steven), only this time it's a FLAC album.

This time, however the Send To -> File Rescan fix/workaround didn't do the trick, so instead of this single 11-track album I have 11 "artists" named 01, 02, ..., 11, each with an album consisting of a single track

Edit:
1. So I had the command line open so I continued to mess around: flac --test completes without an error (the track plays without an issue).
2. I forgot to mention that the folder also contains a .cue file, I added its content below.

as you can see from the tag inspector screenshot, the tag names have a leading " character and hence are not parsed
If you PM me a link to one of the files i will confirm that its not a MB bug

Oh yeah, you're right. Didn't notice that. Good call!
Why did MB assign numbers to the artist tag?

i confirm the tags are stored incorrectly ie. not a MB bug
when no artist/title/album tags are detected MB defaults to parsing values from the filename which in this case is not done well

Oh, that's where the 01 comes from. Yeah, it could be improved or an option to disable it. But those are feature requests.
Thank you, as always, Steven.

I've noticed this sort of thing with a tiny minority of my files, cases where Foobar2000 reads them fine (I'm an ex-Foobar2000 user and although I now prefer MusicBee as a player Foobar2000 is still my preferred thing for some tasks like tagging), what I've done to fix them is copied the tags in Foobar2000, completely removed them with mp3tag and then pasted them back in in Foobar2000. This fixes it. I'm sure there are simpler ways but this way suits what I'm used to best.

I suspect there's something screwy going on with different ID3 types or something - whatever the problem is, Foobar2000 is so blind to it that if I try using it to completely remove the tags the problem remains after I've pasted the tags back in, which is the reason for me using mp3tag to remove them.

musicbee doesnt read id3v3 tags on flac files. I vaguely recal that Id3v3 tags was from a very old default EAC setting for ripped files.

Ah, I seem to vaguely remember that Foobar2000 supports some id3 variant that never really took off and is now quite old (Id3v2.4 as opposed to id3v2.3?). Presumably if a file has both it's completely ignoring the more standard one, even when it removes the tags.

Just throwing in a remark, without having digested the whole thread/problem.

It's important to understand that flac is designed to use Vorbis Comment for metadata (tags).
If your flacs do indeed have id3 tags (whether it is version v2.3 or v2.4), try to remove those, and change to Vorbis.
