I'm not sure which board would suit this request most, so I apologize if this isn't the right place to bring this up.
I recently noticed an issue displaying albums with identical artist and title info, namely concerning American Football releases.
The band American Football has releases from 1998, 1999, and 2016 all titled "American Football." I believe Musicbee's default behavior is to treat these as a single album, so I first tried adding the year field to my grouping requirements. That seemed to make Musicbee recognize them as separate albums (e.g. in playlists), but the panels still mash them all together:
Unhappy with that result, I set the sort album on each AF album to the format "American Football [yyyy]," changed the year grouping requirement to sort album, and also set the group by field in the bottom panel to sort album:
This still isn't ideal as the albums are not split in the "Album" panel, and I generally want to see albums instead of sort albums in the bottom panel (e.g. "The All Seeing Eye" vs. "All Seeing Eye, The").
Does anyone have a better approach to this? If not, what is the best way to request that Musicbee handle this more gracefully?
