Neutron scrambling 'greatest hits' files & folders

Post by karlbu » Thu May 12, 2022 12:26 am

I am using the Neutron paid app for Android, version 2.20.0. There are several sub-folders in my music catalog that are named "Greatest Hits." after the title of the album. Specifically:

The Bruce Springsteen folder has a "Greatest Hits" album sub-folder.
The Marshall Tucker Band folder has a "Greatest Hits" album sub-folder.
The Stevie Ray Vaughan folder has a "Greatest Hits" album sub-folder.
The Martin Denny folder has a "Greatest Hits' album sub-folder.

Although the music files in each of the above folder hierarchies are correct, wwhen I go to play the Stevie Ray Vaughan "Greatest Hits" album, Neutron also serves up music tracks from Springsteen's "Greatest Hits" and Martin Denny's "Greatest Hits," and Marshall Tucker Band's "Greatest Hits"—all scrambled and jumbled together.

See attached screen shot.

This is obviously a bug which needs to be fixed. However, I don't see any way to contact Neutron directly about this.

The question is : what is an album ? Neutron lets you customize this definition, have a look at Settings > Media Library . You can use the "Album Artist" tag, provided you have set it correctly - then group and split by Album Artist. Or you can split by path, if different albums reside in different folders.
If the tags of the music files are properly maintained I'd suggest the following configuration:

Make sure the AlbumArtist tag field is properly completed for all of your Albums. This will ensure titles like "Greatest Hits" are properly split. Use the settings suggested by @blaubär for these to work.
