    I've been using the artwork column feature in iTunes lately, because I've made a couple of playlists with entire albums inside!
    Since, I'd never used it before, I noticed that there are some albums that are not sorted correctly, like the following one from Rage Against the Machine:


    In this example, the first song "Testify" and the twelfth "War Within a Breath" are not listed with the other tracks of the same album, but as separate ones!?

    I've compared the information of the first and the second track, but I can't find any differences.

    See for yourself:



    Any suggestions? Is this a bug or am I missing something?

    Try highlighting all the songs in that album and then do a get info. Once you've done that, go to the sorting section and input the correct info so it all matches. Sometimes, the sorting info does not match and causes this problem.

    I was having the exact same problem and I still don't know what was causing it (It had nothing to do with differences in common fields such as artist or album). To fix it highlight all the songs on the album and go to Get Info, check the box that says part of a compilation and click OK then go back and uncheck the compilation box and click OK again.

    I have no idea why this happens or why this solution works but it did for me.
