So I've FINALLY finished the grueling task of retagging my music info on my PC (I don't have a massive library, but I'm slow about it). However, there is one thing I still cannot resolve with my phone. Xbox Music sorts albums by their year. However, many albums do not tag their release year when transferring over to my device. The years are tagged on the tracks on my PC (under the "Properties" of the files, along with in the music program I tagged the tracks from).
Has anyone else encountered this issue, and does anyone have a solution to it? I have tried removing and reapplying the year to the tracks, but it did no good.

Are you referring to this issue? I've tagged all my albums correctly, with the release year of course, and yet only a couple show when listed. I have all the Xbox Metadata turned off and always have had.
I've never worked out why it shows correctly on a few, but not the rest of the collection.

As for MPATool, I have it. In fact, I just finished tagging all of my artists with it today. It's too bad that it is the only option on the platform to accomplish that task though, as the app is missing quite a few features, in addition to the fact that it crashes at random quite a bit during long-ish tagging sessions. For starters, you cannot adjust the focus of the image chosen. There were a few artists where I wanted to use a nice picture, but when it was centered by the app, it didn't have the entire image and wasn't usable, leaving me to use some lesser images. Still, it does the job pretty well, and I'm grateful it exists, as the built-in player didn't have much of ANYTHING for images on my artists.
