If an album has the same album artist and album tag as another, even though the year tag is different, all songs get grouped to one album.

In this case, I would want something like so:

You could add Year to the criteria in sorting/grouping preferences

If you're not sure where to find this, it's under preferences and sorting/grouping, look for the section that says "grouping - specify how files are grouped to an album". Fields 1 and 2 should be artist and album name, so add a 3rd field for the year.
