Missing artists in skin overview
#1
I'm constantly noticing that albums in music overview are missing artists, like so

When I look in the database I see that the table "album_artist" has lots of entries with "[MISSING TAG]". I'm assuming that these correspond to the albums showing up with no artist but I'm still investigating.

This leads me to some thoughts, though. Only for split artists or several artists should a tag "album artist" exist, cf. https://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?ti...BUM_ARTIST . Not sure if Kodi is set up this way, but I would consider using the "album artist" tag uncondintionally as a starting point a design flaw, especially when the setting "Show song and album artist" is switched off.

Logic and common sense dictate that with setting "Show song and album artist" = OFF, tag evaluation should be:
a) IF NOT EXIST album artist SHOW artist
b) IF EXIST album artist AND artist ONLY SHOW album artist

With setting "Show song and album artist" = ON, tag evaluation should be:
a) IF NOT EXIST album artist SHOW artist
b) If EXIST album artist ALWAYS SHOW album artist AND ALWAYS SHOW artist
