When running the inspection, beaTunes will report identical tracks and highlight them for deletion even if they are on different CDs or different Albums.

For example, the tracks on the screenshot are considered to be 4 times the same though they are only two duplicates. It would be nice if there were an option to instruct beaTunes to ignore track on different albums as duplicates based on the album title (I had instances where a song is on two albums and beaTunes would like to delete one of them. I feel it should remain on both albums) and maybe, additionally, even if it is different CDs (so that track 3-20 is not considered the same as 4-13 even if they have the same title)…
