On my Accione P almost all music titles on the SD card are not grouped by album. I can reproduce after executing tracker reset -r in the terminal app. The Accione P uses Sailfish while my Intext Aqua Fish uses Sailfish, that shows correctly grouped music int the Media Player. It seems, that this bug occurs in the newest Sailfish OS release. Can any one confirm this behaviour? Does someone knows a workaround? It'S not a good user experience to navigate back and select another albom for each title.

Confirming for Sailfish X (Xperia X), also each album is displayed multiple times for the number of tracks it contains.
For me it seems as if the problem above all applies to AAC audio files, MP3 is not affected that much.

I have copied the music directory of iTunes. It works fine on my Intex Aqua Fish with Sailfish The files are MPEG-4 audio files with .m4a ending.

I had the same problem before, at least with Greatest Hits-albums with songs tagged with their individual year. I had as many "albums" as there were songs with unique year-tags. I learned that the year-tag is supposed to be used for the whole album, not individual songs (there is some other tag one can use for that). After deleting all year-tags on every album with songs with different years, everything works great. I'm on Xperia Hossa

Confirmed for on XA2+ Music folder symlinked to SD card. Now each song is its own album.
