Belly of an architect

-tracks are not all composed by mertens/branca. tracks 2-9 are by mertens, the others are by branca.
-tracks 1-13 have been collected in a composition, a non-sense being by different composers. and track 14 left alone outside the composition.
-there’s no way to overwrite this mess: even if my settings are to prefer file track title, and to prefer file work/part tags (that in this case … are missing).

so, a quite strange situation in which it seams that… i have absolutely NO CONTROL over the album. i mean, i cannot say “ok roon forget all your rubbish, trust me, a keep file tags straight from beginning to end”
quite disappointing…

Quite strange indeed. Looks good too me in my library.

yes… strange.
besides, i’ve looked for other identifications, but there’s only this one.
and in my tags there’s nothing suspicious…

I am almost 100% sure I tagged them with MusicBrainz & I don’t think I had to identify the album.

Great Movie! :smiley:


In the Album View, click the 3 dots icon and select Edit. From there choose the Edit Album tab and scroll down to Multi-Part Composition Grouping and Select Disable or Prefer File and see if that helps.

@Greg, thanks it worked. :slight_smile:
i had to select disable in multi-part composition grouping.

then, i checked in the compositions page if there was a 13-parts composition surviving. but actually it turns out that none of the tracks of this albums is listed as a composition. :confused: (while before there were 2 compositions, one of 13 parts).
and if i click on mertens or branca in the composers name under the track, the links take me to a list of compositions from other albums, but not this one.

actually, in the case of mertens… there is only 1 composition. which seems to contradict the fact that there is an entire album by him:

it seems a track without composition.
but i’ve reported somewhere else about tracks with no composition, or with track-composer and composition-composer not corresponding.

i have to say that these problems are… testing my nerves.

If you haven’t seen this post, you might take a look, just more to discuss:

yes @Rugby
i had already read that discussions. as i said, i’ve reported somewhere about this problem, and quoted exactly this your quoted post.
i understand that this has been recognized as a problem, that there’s a ticket about it… so, i’m just waiting.
in this case … the strange thing is that @Paulb has the same album, but does not have same problem…
