Ugg, I'd rather that companies like Universal not even bother trying, as the gamer demographic heard this music on the RADIO rather than while playing their XBOX360. The Rockband Bandwagon has some flat tires...

Can we get a new album type like "Licensed Release" for cases like this one please?

I wouldn't mind classifying it as "Junk", but that's not what the Release Type field is really for anyway.

Any other place/tag to indicate that none of the content is original (and the original use is not within games)?

Perhaps a "compilation" classification is in order ("original work" doesn't cut it). A lot of other albums will need to be updated with that, too.

But the classification field is overloaded as it is (for instance, "vocal" doesn't fit in that list of choices). We should come up with something more rigorous, which would most probably involve splitting into more fields.
