OK thanks , can you please tell me which fields suppose to be identical so Kodi would recognize it as 1 album ...

Just the album tag.

For example you could change that for 100s of individual songs to "Personal music" and it would all show up under the Personal Music Album.

You can do the same for various artists or singles if you want.

Nice rename script to change any picard albums to this format.

ARTIST\ARTIST-ALBUM-CD-FLAC-YEAR-PICARD

You just need to tick the "move" and "rename" options, and add this in the rename script box:

Code:
$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)/$replace($if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)-%album%-CD-FLAC-$if(%date%,$left(%date%,4))-PICARD, ,_)/$lower($if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%,)$if($ne(%albumartist%,),$num(%tracknumber%,2),)$replace(-%artist%-%title%, ,_))

So if you use a diffferent format,say mp3 or m4A you just plug that in instead of FLAC

Here is my updated renamer setting. This one also removes the apostrophe's in filenames
Code:
$rreplace($if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)/$replace($if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)-%album%-CD-FLAC-$if(%date%,$left(%date%,4))-PiCARD, ,_)/$lower($if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%,)$if($ne(%albumartist%,),$num(%tracknumber%,2),)$replace(-%artist%-%title%, ,_)),['"],)

If anyone is interested. I have my Picard (v2.6.3) set up to save the files in this format:

It starts with Album Artist  folder, then within that folder the "Album (with the year) folder, I.E. Aerosmith (1975)", then within that folder, the "disc of disc", I.E. Disc 1 of 1 or Disc 2 of 5, then within each disc folder it puts the songs in the following format: track#. Artist - Song Title, I.E. 01. It scrapes great within Kodi (my fork of Kodi). Took me forever to get Kodi to scrape sets with multiple discs in it correctly, this did it for me.

Aerosmith > Aerosmith (1975) > Disc 1 of 1 > 04. Aerosmith - Walk This Way.flac

%albumartist%/%album% ($if(%date%,$left(%date%,4)))/Disc %discnumber% of %totaldiscs%/$num(%tracknumber%,2). %artist% - %title%
Kodi v18.4 with Aeon Nox:SiLVO / Using on Nvidea Shield, Android 7.1.2 on MeCool M8S Pro L-3GB/32GB and other Android TV Boxes as well as Windows 7 & 10
