v18 Music library sort
#5
I suspect that you may be seeing a sorting anomoly that comes from a fundamental flaw in the way that sorting is implemented, and nothing to do with ignoring articles. 

What sort order are you looking at? Do you see the albums in the correct/expected order when looking at the albums node (all the albums) sorted by "Album"? Does the odd order occur when looking at albums but sorted by "Artist" (implicitly this is a multi-field sort of artist name and abum title)?

Multi-field sorting, and most sort orders actually involve more than one field despite how they are named, has been implemented by a simple field contatenation approach. For example sorting album by "Artist", it combines artist name and album title into a single string and sorts that. Most times that works adequately, but it does not always give the same results as ordering first by artist name and then ordering those with same artist name by album title would give.

I have it on my todo list to refactor sorting, but it is a big job and meanwhile very few people notice that sorting has the glitch. It is discussed here
 
Well that is my best guess anyway.
