    There is one thing that works very bad in the music search:

    When searching for music info with F3 for a track that is not fully tagged, the results are useless.

    Example album: unknown / artist: Meat Loaf
    will return you 30 albums with "unknown" in the title. The artist name seems to be completely ignored by the search (so you prbably won´t find the right album)

    If searching by the album name only is the best way to implement the search, maybe at least switch to artist search for the keyword "unknown", because cases in which unknown really is part of the album title are rare.

    I have no idea how the logic of the seach is now and which possibilities has, but I am quite sure this search behaviour can be improved.
