    I have a big problem with my music app since I installed iOS 11. The app believes that every song on an album is its own album which makes me crazy. I have checked all tags (album, album artist, album name) and it looks fine, iTunes gets it but when it syncs with the phone it messes things up. ALSO, the new albums doesnt show in my library under artists, they're not there which makes me even crazier.

    For example, I added a couple of American Aquarium albums but when I look under artists they are not there and the app thinks every song is its own album. Anybody who knows what the problem is?

    Yeah, it's a complete mess. Unfortunately, Apple doesn't seem to care much about its legacy music app (as witnessed by clinging to the junk software, iTunes, as a music manager).

    Problem is stemming from iTunes, not IOS 11.

    Pity Apple forces us to use this pile of *******.

    Got hit with the "each track shown as its own album in Music" problem - for local mp3s, added to SE 11.2.2 via iTunes 12.7 on Windows and "manage manually" setting. Noticed it happens when adding the files with a directory structure deeper than one level:

    - create folder "myMusic" with subfolders "album1" "album2" "album3" in it, each with tracks
    - drag "music" from the filesystem onto the device in iTunes ("yourPhone > Music" on the left): it syncs, but Music app shows each track as its own album
    - unusable (can be deleted e.g. via Settings > Music > Downloaded Music)
    - go into "myMusic" and select all the "album1" "album2" "album3" folders, then drag this selection as before: after sync, Music app shows albums and tracks as expected
