Track order has never been a problem with iOS 7 for me on any of my devices. I suspect that you had a corrupt installation, so just installing a new iOS is what fixed your problem. You likely could have gotten the track order fixed simply by restoring withe the version you were using before.

What, back to iOS6? That's when they were last in correct order prior to iOS7 upgrade. Anyway, it shouldn't have been a problem; definitely a bug there as its fixed now (and I had every confidence in Apple that it would be!) -- I haven't done anything. Wasn't every album... just some.

No, I wasn't saying going back to iOS 6 (you can't anyway). I'm saying that your prior iOS 7 installation was likely corrupted, whether that was 7.0 thru 7.0.2. Just the act of installing 7.0.3 is what fixed your track order problem, which likely would have also been fixed by restoring to whatever variant of iOS 7 you had prior to 7.0.3.
In other words, this was not fixed by 7.0.3, it was fixed simply by re-installing an iOS package, which is what restoring would have done too. Track sorting isn't the subject of this thread (album sorting within the Artist menu is). Track sorting has been fine on all my iOS 7 installations.

Actually yes you can if you still got your keys SHSH blobs or whatever the heck they're called... and yes 7.0 .3 is safe to upgrade to if you're thinking about wink wink nod nodding your device...

Well it looks like that the moderators do not like me posting anything about downgrading to iOS 6 even know if you have the SH SH blobs you are able to it has been verified on multiple computers with multiple devices and it solved the issue of the music app noted in OP's post

After this morning, I think I'm done with this phone as a music player, which was pretty much the only reason I wanted an iPhone in the first place. I just can't stand it anymore. It starts my day off in a bad way, continues throughout the day at work and doesn't stop until I get home and put the thing on the charger for the evening.
The interface, the music sorting, landscape mode, the constant interruption of I Heart Radio to play the first song alphabetically in my collection, forgetting what song it was playing right before plugging it into my car and playing the first song alphabetically in my collection instead... ARRRGH!!!! After a month of dealing this crap, I never want to use it again. It's infuriating and mind-boggling that Apple could release something so awful. I have submitted feedback on these problems every week since iOS 7 was released. I'm done with it.

thank you for Picky, it. really makes life with iOS7 begrabe.
There is just one small issue I'd like to adress: if you use the shuffle play mode, without selecting/filtering any Album or Artist, Picky apparently plays Songs that are no longer on the phone. I add/remove music from time to time on my 4s(16GB) and Picky plays songs I removed months ago and which it does actually not show in the song list. Not a big issue, but you may want to take a look.

I wonder if there is an alternative app (to Music) that can show full titles for songs and albums. I've complained about this before: in classical music, many tracks have very long titles so they don't fit on the screen, but start exactly the same. Just an example:
String Quartet No. 14 in D minor ("Death and the Maiden"), D. 810 - Allegro
String Quartet No. 14 in D minor ("Death and the Maiden"), D. 810 - Andante con moto
Now that the option of seeing a full title (by holding a track) has been removed, using the official Apple Music app is just a nightmare.
I wonder if there is another app out there that can conveniently show long titles, supports Airplay and etc.

I too have a lot of classical music and have tried this for you to confirm.
It does not work in the native app in IOS 7.0.3, same goes for Lagu. I also use the Picky app and that does not have the feature either. Seems like the only way to see it is to actually play the track and wait, which isn't very helpful.
Good thing is the developer of Picky, Charles is on this forum quite a bit and listens to the feedback people give. He might be able to confirm if this is still possible in the new IOS.
BTW, new update is great Charles.

What I think is dumb with the music app and I'm not sure if it's been like this all along or if it's just the way is in iOS 7 but I have an album that has a lot of different artists music it's a compilation sort of so I go into Album view and I wish to play the entire album I can't because there's like 38 entries for that one album and then if I were to search for it then it comes back with unknown album how Retardrd is that?
