Click the wrech (the settings button) above the collection box, then in there you can choose what each layer (or whatever they're called) shows. Yours is probably showing album on layer 1 and artist on layer 2. Just change layer 2 to nothing and it should show up properly.

Try right-click on an entry and choose "Show under various artists".

Ah, I sort by Artist - Album. Apparently it's not available if you only sort by Album (though I think it should since it's apparently still implicitly sorting by artist).

If nobody finds an answer for you here maybe the Amarok forums can help.

im using amarok 1.4 anh it still allows me to sort my collection accourding to album as the only layer but both amarok 2.2 n banshee cant, that's one reason i reluctant to migrate to amarok 2.2
