    I would like to know why when I try to listen to a certain album, it keeps the artists separated but although the album has the same name, I can't hear all the songs of the album because the artists have different names. The same goes for when I want to hear songs from a particular artist, genre,etc...

    Is there something I'm missing? Appreciate any help.

    Thank you in advance!

    In SETTINGS > MUSIC is the "Group By Album Artist" turned on or off?

    I have it turned off to avoid these annoyances.

    Oh, I think I misread/misunderstood your initial question, my apologies.

    So for example, a Soundtrack, Same Album, 13 songs, 10 or so Artist, etc. it will not organize the tracks to be apart of the same album, but instead sort them by artist?

    Can you provide a screenshot? Is it like this (file attached)?

    If so, in iTunes you will need to edit the track info (all at once is the easiest) and add "Album Artist" info. See attached screens. Hope that helps.

    Exactly what you have there on you screenshot. Below you can see I have the Gran Turismo 5 soundtrack all sorted through artist's names and not album, which is strange because I used to be able to hear every single song just by clicking the track list icon on the top right corner, but not anymore.

    Make the Album Artist info for all the tracks to be the same as the Album name.

    So I choose all the songs, click comand + I and then in "Information" change the name of the Album to the same name correct?

    Correct.

    Make sure the "Album" and "Album Artist" are the exact same as in my screens.

    Thank you for the help, I'm am so sorry I forgot to thank you. :)

    Tried doing this now on IOS 7 and If I change the album artist it will change the names to what I wrote, which I don't want. :S
