This happens to me all the time. Except that it's always different songs,
randomly showing up under No Artist/No Album. I'm sure it's a glitch in
5.4.x. Note that the songs in question always also show up correctly under
the correct "artist" or "album". Nothing wrong with your tags, no doubt.

Note that 5.4.x also has a problem keeping track of the total number of
songs it thinks I have in my library.

I've seen that behaviour a couple times, with random songs, but a rescan
always fixes that immediately.

This problem is different. It's an entire album, and it persists across
multiple rescans/wipes. I suspect there's something wonky about the
tags in that particular album.
