iPod sorting

I have a musical score on my iPad and it sorts each track by the individual artist. Is there any way to get it to keep the entire album together? I have another MP3 player, and that player (when in the "artist" view) sorts by "album artist" rather than by each individual artist.

This annoys me because instead of having all the songs in one place, they're just scattered all throughout the playlist. Even though it is techinically 12 different artists, I only have 1 song by each of them. Minor gripe I suppose, and I could just rename the artist to something generic ("Various Artists") but I figured there might be something I can check/uncheck (either in iTunes or on the iPod settings in my iPad) that I've just not noticing. Thanks for any help.

I would like to know as well. I prefer songs are sorted by song name and not artist, so slightly different but basically the same issue.
