    Say you have a playlist with two completely unrelated albums, one called "<something>" and the other "The <something>". When you sort by album name, the tracks from both albums will be interleaved bby track number. This is completely wrong.

    I am not talking about ignoring "The" in the browser for artist and album names. There it is quite practical, so as not to have a huge block of "The" stuff together.

    Easiest thing would be to set the album sort name of one of the albums to something different, like "<something> [no, the other one!]", so it will still be displayed with its correct name ("The <something>") but not mixed up with the "<something>" album tracks.

    I usually add a space character after one album name; that keeps them separate.

    I am not going to hack the album names. Apple should fix this.
