Hello, to understand my problem I will show you two screenshots.

By default, when you have a folder with an album... and you drag and drop this folder to foobar2000, it organize the songs as belonging them to the same artist.
For example, if you have a folder in which the mp3 all them belong to the same artist, you will see them, perfectly organized, as you see in this picture.



Okay... but what happens if you have an album and every song belong to a different author? what happens is foobar2000 show the album not well organized, as this:



As you can see... all these songs belong to the album In Violet 2011, but foobar2000 show them separately and not organized in the same group as in the case before.

Why is this happening?

Well... foobar2000 organize the songs by default, putting all them together, when they belong to the same artist. If you have an artist called, Simply Red, foobar2000 will organize all the songs of this artist together.

Well, I don't want this.

I want foobar2000 organize the songs grouping them, by ALBUM NAME and not by artist name.

How many I do this?

Thanks a lot
