Use the `original release date` instead of the `recording date` for the album date.
What is the problem you are facing?
Thanks to #1366 (closed), the album's year is shown in the UI. Unfortunately, the year that appear comes from the
recording date ID3 tag, while —if present— the
release date, or, better, the
original release date tags could be more useful.
What are the possible drawbacks or issues with the requested changes?
I can't really see much drawbacks to this. I guess you'd lose the info about when was the album re-released, but that is mostly useful for collection, not music classification.
See here example of old albums presented as recent because they are re-release:
