This is Roon’s doing. In general, a lot of the (content in brackets) that we get from TIDAL, that they get from the record labels is awful, so we don’t use it. We are currently re-evaluating whether or not we can sift the good stuff from the bad. What you are seeing is Roon’s canonical track titles for that release of the album.
I understand the challenge with sifting the good (content in brackets) from the bad, but as someone who listens to a fair bit of dance music, I come across this problem a lot when looking at remix albums/singles.
A couple of suggestions:
A rule-based approach might look at the overall album/EP/single for repeated track titles: where multiple tracks have the same ‘canonical’ name, the (content in brackets) could be shown to differentiate them.
Let the user (easily) choose: you know TIDAL’s got some extra gumpf which you’ve filtered out - offer the user a toggle to turn that on/off or even rotate between different versions of metadata (e.g. Roon’s, TIDAL’s, the user’s, Qobuz, etc). Ideally for me, the toggle would be right there rather than having to edit the album and search for metadata; where the user settles their toggling can be persisted.
As per my earlier suggestion, a rule-based approach would recognise that the content in brackets is the only thing differentiating otherwise identical track titles. Why not use the extra info in these easily identifiable scenarios?
