Amarok 2.0 - Better Than 1.4?

"For this review I used Amarok 2.0.2 (which was
released to the public on March 5), included in Kubuntu 9.04 Beta
(with all the upgrades to date) and I scanned several Ogg Vorbis
and FLAC albums, all of them with correctly filled-in tags. I also
included a compilation with several artists, which from the start
messed up the entire playlist. That is, the albums from a single
artist were correctly displayed, while the compilation album was
spread in the entire playlist (see the screenshots below). In fact,
Amarok only tries to organise tracks on the compilation depending
on the artist. So if we have three artists with two songs each,
they will be spread in the playlist, sorted by artist's name.
Although I like how the single-artist albums are displayed in the
playlist, when it comes to compilation this approach tends to mess
things up and look inconsistent."
