I suggest you ...

Add "Album artist view" as an option/replacement of "Artist view" in Collection

"Album artis" view could be very useful when you want to know which artists are responsible for an entire album.
In an scenario where you have multiple artist in an album, in several albums, "Artist" view tend to make a mess of your collection.

        Most of my music is classical, and tagged in exquisite detail from MusicBrainz metadata. I can easily have a dozen artists associated with a given track: Composer, Librettist, multiple Singers, Orchestra, Conductor, etc. All of these artists should appear in the Artist list. Right now it seems that your "Artist View" is only Track Artist. Album Artist values should also populate this view. And, if there are multiple Artist or Album Artist entries in a music file, all should populate this view.

        For me, this is also a very important feature. Samplers and songs "feat." other artists are getting scrambled. Love tomahawk, but without this my music library becomes unusable. Please!

        Any update on this? It seems like a not-that-hard to implement feature (but I'm not a developer, so excuse my ignorance if it isn't)

        Yes, this is really important. Don't need compilation discs ruining my album flow.

        It would be even better to be able to sort by custom tags

        some free text like:
        "%ALBUMARTIST%
        %RELEASEDATE%
        %ALBUMTITLE%"

        could sort as follow:
        1. first sort by album artist
        2. then by date
        3. then by album title

        I know, I know :I loved Foobar2000 too much. :)

        Yeah, this is huge. My entire library is set up for album artist instead of artist, and it makes the list of artists super cluttered with near duplicates.
