Question: Album Split Into Individual Albums Per Track (From Same Album)

This only happens for some albums, and I have yet to notice any pattern as to why some are added fine and others incur this issue. For the albums that this issue does happen to...I add an album to my iPhone (manually managed through iTunes). The album is hidden until I also add an album artist to the info for the tracks. After adding an album artist, the album appears, but every single song from it gets listed as its own album. The album title is, of course, identical for each one, but they're all listed separately. If I choose "compilation" for the songs, they disappear again. If I remove the album artist, they disappear again. Thus, the album is only available with each song from it split into its own album. Why oh WHY does this happen? It's a frustrating, annoying, and unexplainable problem. I have this problem way more than I don't. Only a select few albums that I've added to my phone appear properly. Please help me troubleshoot it.
I've tried restoring the iPhone to factory settings already. The iPhone is not jailbroken. This happens on the stock Music app as well as 3rd party ones like Vox. The album does show up on iTunes when browsing the phone. It happens regardless of whether the music is in MP3 or AAC, etc.
