That's weird. I tried to duplicate your settings, but couldn't get the "Album by Artist" column to show. Also, I'm guessing you modified iTunes to hide the Genre column at the top, right? My first guess was going to be Artist vs Album Artist, but I don't think that's it.

yes i did modify the genre thing by the boolean command.

thing is, it works on my laptop running itunes. im confused as to whats causing the issue on this computer
