I am currently using
* the Grouping tag to specify album types (e.g., Studio, Single, Compilation, etc.);
* the Set Subtitle tag to group tracks within the same album (e.g., Act I, Bonus, B-Sides, etc.);
* the Media Type tag to specify the physical medium (e.g., Cassette, CD, Digital Media, etc.).
How does one typically specify album series in order to group different albums (e.g.,  Fargo Year 1 to 4, ‎Punk Goes Pop Vol. 1 to 7, etc.)?
Is there a physical tag (all my tracks are M4A files with AAC encoding) designated for or close to this specific purpose?

Does grouping with the <Album> title not sort the above sets properly?

For television series I use the same Album title for all releases, and a custom Release tag where I put 'Season 1', 'Season 2', or 'Volume 1', 'Volume 2' etc.
I have added that Release tag under the tags used to define separate albums in the Sorting/Grouping preferences.

This avoids filling the Album list with repeated entries for each season of a television show, or each volume of a compilation.
Bee excellent to each other...

The Incredible Boom Boom, OP wants to differentiate albums and album series. i don't know how he filled out the album tag, but the album tag must be set to either "album series" or "individual album." in any case, he needs a second tag to store, respectively, "album" or "album series." The OP asks if there are some standardized tags for this purpose.

edit: Zak has already answered while I was typing.
