The only obvious way to avoid this new bad behavior is to enter through the Albums view. You can also select an album from Search results. I stumbled across a dumb way to do it when entering through Artists, which I described here:
Please complain about this on Apple's Feedback page. Somewhere they got the idea that "albums" are just weak organizational tags applied to sets of songs in an implicit playlist that consists of all your music for an Artist, a Genre, a Composer, etc, tags that no longer establish boundaries for playback and shuffle, which is just wrong. As I wrote in that message I linked to, they broke the Remote app in a similar way last January.

This seems to be by design in the new music player and it is awful. I've left feedback as well as it makes no sense and breaks what was working well for no benefit.
