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%,),$num(%track​number%,2),)$replace(-%artist%-%title%, ,_))

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