        Ok, up until now you've been saying that Android does not support this, but the latest version of the Google Music Player absolutely DOES, so it cannot be an OS problem. The Google player is also able to distinguish albums with the same name, but from different artists (like "Greatest Hits"), so at this moment it has become my default music player.

        I do not like, however, some of Google's implementations, especially that I cannot exclude certain folders, nor specifically sort by album artist, and that it lacks a "pretty" widget.

        I am very much hoping that Meridian will catch up in the very near future and FINALLY start to recognize the album artist field, and hopefully also make it a sort-option.

        Especially for Jazz and compilation albums with many artists and/or co-artists, it would be a HUGE benefit to be able to set the "artist" tab to use the "album artist" field instead of the regular artist field, which can get rather messy....
