Problem: Albums with different genres but the same artist are recognized as Various Artists.

Hi

I have found Mode by accident and use it for one week. Very good job Tim. Cool

I have found a bug.
Albums with different genres but the same artist are recognized as Various Artists.

I think an artist could have songs with different genre even on the same album. In that case, the album should not be displayed as a Various album.

The options are set as follow.
Artist list ordering ->Album Artist
Ignore Articles -> a,an,the
Compilation rollup -> Yes
Compilation excludes -> greatest hits

Have a nice day

Try turning Compilation Rollup off.

Hi Tim

Thank you for the quick answer. I had tried that before and have tried it now again. The result is even worse. Now songs in the same album with the different genre have been torn apart. Moreover, other albums have been torn apart as well. Especially samplers. They are spread all over the place.

Looking forward to your answer.

Hi Tom,

Given that the Library is currently based on the hierarchical structure below, songs belonging to an Album need to be tagged with same Genre otherwise there will be breakage.

{Genre1: {Artist1: {Album1: [{song1}, {song2}], Album2:...}, Artist2:...}, Genre2:...}

In moOde Git repo there is a PR to flatten the Library structure which would potentially address the genre issue.
