Artists credits for release with multiple collaborations

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7d00f6d338>

Hello, everyone

I was tagging some songs and found some releases that confused me. One example is https://musicbrainz.org/release/b9b6ec01-19ff-4de5-94f6-3b49a8d4d341. Should the album artists be “Phace & Misanthrop / Phace & Noisia” or “Phace / Misanthop / Noisia” or the current “Phace, Misanthrop & Noisia”?

So, checking the various links, each has a different variation – and I couldn’t find a cover art of sufficiently high resolution to see what that says.

I don’t think any of them are categorically “wrong”, but I’d be interested in finding an artist intent anywhere rather than relying on what Discogs, Beatport, or Amazon says.

I think Discogs’s approach is good idea.

Add the release title is A’s title / B’s title, its release AC is, similarly, A’s AC / B’s AC.

Please review queued edits.

BTW linked Amazon does same: Phace & Misanthrop / Phace & Noisia.
