It would be really helpful if the "Select an Option" box that comes up when trying to match an album to a release that has song(s) with different durations would list the name of the song on both the existing song title and the release song. Currently it says:

"There are some major differences between your songs and the specified release do you want to update anyway ?"

"Song ROW_NUMBER has a duration of XX:XX. but release song RELEASE_SONG_NAME has a duration of XX:XX"

The problem is that the row number a lot of times is not very helpful. The box is in front of the grid and typically covers up the existing song title. Plus with the "Select an Option" box up, I can't even scroll to see what the existing song title is.

It is often handy to be able to at least see if the song name that it is trying to use and the song name that exists are the same or similar song names.

Something like this would be desirable,

""Song ROW_NUMBER, EXISTING_SONG_NAME, has a duration of XX:XX. but release song RELEASE_SONG_NAME has a duration of XX:XX""

Currently I find myself having to write down the message in the box, then hit NO on the box, then verify by hand that it has at least the same song names, then go back and try to match it again if I think it is a valid match.

I suppose adding song name would be useful, in the meantime you can move the modal window, so I would suggest you just make sure that the title column is displayed, because you are matching one release I would imagine that usually you would not need to scroll vertically.

The top window can be moved, but the window behind it can not. So I can move the warning duration window, but the matching to release window that is behind it that is covering up most of my display can not be moved with the duration warning window in the foreground. I always have the columns shown, but a lot of times the actual song title ends up behind the message boxes. Typically on albums that are under 20 songs, the song would be in view if both boxes were movable, but even then, larger albums would require scrolling up or down.

Having the ability to quickly see that the song titles match and the durations are close enough, would allow one to make a quick decision on whether or not to proceed.
