When you enter an album title search string, we first convert it to the
character set used in our simplified title strings (i.e., we convert
upper case to lower case, and drop out any non alphanumeric characters).
We then look for your search string in our list of simplified titles.
Any album whose simplified title contains your search string as a
substring is matched.
- The literal title, which is the one you see.
- A simplified title string, which is used for sorting titles. In this

upper case is converted to lower case, all spaces and punctuation are
If more than one album title matches, we print CG reviews for all of
the matches, up to a limit. The matches are sorted by artist, with
compilations and soundtracks at the end. The default
limit is 50 CG reviews. If your search string matches more
than this limit, we provide an option to re-run the search with
a larger limit.
