    I spent 2 months putting together a soundtrack collection to my most favorite MMO. I organized the whole thing with proper ID3 tagging and gave each track a artist, picture, track #, etc but when I view this whole soundtrack on the basic music player (this one) it would have everything in alphabetical order and it takes all the ID3 info from the first track in the list. I looked into all of its options and there was nothing to change the view or anything at all.

    Are there any music enthusiast out there with recommendations?

    This.

    You really should try it out, you won't only have a normal mp3 player, but a player that support games music files from the nes, snes, 64, gcn, wii, ds, 3ds, ps1, pc, etc...

    The original version (droidsound) is, but it's waaaaaay outdated. Just grab the APK from Github instead. :)

    I didnt want to ask until I've tried out the app for myself for some time. I search the directory of my phone to get to my music and it still displays it all in alphabetical. I got into settings>misc>sorting preference and choose DB entry (thats track # right?). Also none of the track art shows up at all.

    I'm looking at yours now. It shows all of the music in the track # order which I really like but its still taking the image from the first track and applying it to everything. Is it possible to show the art for each song instead?

    Rocket Player is by far the best music player on Android.

    I personally have been using BlackPlayer, I find it looks great and functions well. Has lots of features too.

    I just want to say that droidsound-e is a dream. I know it might not be the most pleasing aesteticly, but the format support is really unmatched (coming from the guy that basically listens exclusivly to videogame music, and got rid of his ipod touch for a $20 pay as you go android to use it.)

    I only wish it ran on raspberry pi zero (hint hint)

    I feel like what I'm asking for is just falling on deaf ears. Could everyone just stop suggesting players for a moment and try to pick one in regards for what I'm trying to achieve?

    There's an option that uses the image in each file in settings>album art>prefer id3 artwork.

    Thats all I was looking to do. No other player I was using was doing it.

    Thank you to everyone else for your input.
