Dates are an issue for albums as well.
Example.
If I put the 1994 Remaster of DSOTM into a ripper it will tell me that the date is 1994 - which is sort of correct but in my world its 1973 and always has been so I end up changing it to 1973 but naming the album "DSOTM (1994 Remaster)" which then causes issues with MAI not necessarily finding its album review. In this day and age we really need 2 date tags and for LMS to read the whole date as in dd/mm/yy and order on date accordingly.
