Annoyed user here,
I’m a newish Roon user and cannot figure out a simple way to find tracks on Tidal. I’m completely baffled by the default “compositions” display that shows up after searching for an artist. For example, I want to listen to songs performed by Peter Gabriel, so I search for him and the results appear to be a list of song names. But clicking a composition shows me a list of OTHER ARTISTS that performed that song and I need to scroll around looking for the one that Peter Gabriel performed. I don’t care about the way Primus, Erasure or Pink or whoever covered a Peter Gabriel song. I’m searching for Peter Gabriel the artist.
I understand that some people want to search by the person who wrote the song, but that’s not always the artist is it? Is there a way I can simply see tracks for Peter Gabriel, as the performer, when I search for Peter Gabriel? Ideally, the search results would just show the most popular songs by that artist in the search results and I could just add tracks to a playlist directly from the search results (like every other music service on earth).
What feature do I need to disable to accomplish this?
Thank you for listing to my rant.
EDIT: I see now that some artists have a button to select the search results as Performer or Artist, but most of the ones i search for do not, like the aforementioned Peter Gabriel.
