    So I have 2 CDs by Daughtry. 'Leave This Town' and 'Daughtry.'

    I ripped both of them in iTunes and added them via iTunes Match. Subsequently, both Albums were "matched."

    On 3 separate iPhones, in my family, when we click on the Artist tab and find Daughtry only one album "Leave This Town" is displayed. It's as if the other album "Daughtry" is not available. However, if I go to Albums instead of Artists, I can find it.

    I downloaded all the songs on this hidden album, and turned off "show all music" and under the artist tab, it still isn't showing. The only way to find this music is to look under Album.

    If I search for "Daughtry" both albums show up, I just can't get the album to show up under the artists tab.

    All info on the tag is correct and double checked.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Odd! I have everything by Daughtry and it shows everywhere.

    This is really odd. Over 5,000 songs and I'm at a loss on why an Album isn't showing up under the artists when using the artists' tab button.

    What's weird, is this is happening on all my iOS devices. For both my Macs, the Album and artist are showing up just fine. In fact, I can delete them and redownload from the Cloud. This has to be some sort of bug.

    I just added a few other CDs, random artists, etc. Immediately, all songs and albums show up on my iOS devices.

    So I deleted the Album from one of my Macs and elected to delete it from the cloud as well. Then I re-ripped the CD & iTunes Matched it again.

    This time, it's showing up like it should across my iOS devices. Very weird behavior...especially since it was happening the same way on all my iOS devices. I appreciate your comments above, because that meant it had to be isolated to my account and not a system wide issue with the CD. Hence, I tried the above steps to resolve it & it worked!

    I have this problem too. Two albums (that I know of) don't show up under Artists but do under Albums.

    Report it to Apple. I'm in the UK so can't use it but I assume – being that it's beta – that Apple have provided a way to tell them about things like this?

    Check if the "part of compilation" flag is checked on the songs in the album. If it is, you need to have an "album artist" listed.

    It's not a bug. Go to Settings>Music> and make sure Show All Music is switched to on. Without it being on, only the music "synced" to your iDevice shows up (ie. Smart Playlists, I have a Recent Music smart playlist that automatically "syncs" when plugged in and ensures all of my new music is actually synced so I don't have to download it to my device manually). With it switched on, all of your iTunes Match music should show up.

    The 1 song not showing up under an artist album is flagged as a compilation. Can I just un-check this box? What does this do anyway? I'm not near a wifi right now to verify, but will check this tomorrow.

    Thanks for the info

    Well, I'm not exactly sure what it does, other than mark it as part of a compilation (album with many artists).

    I do know that if it is checked, it will use the album artist for the songs and not the artist.
