Better Artist/Album sorting

I would love it if Winamp would sort my music as best it can based on the year in the ID tag. I recently replaced a hard drive and simply copied my music collection to the new drive. Now every file and folder has the same creation date.

I prefer to use 'last updated' so I can see the latest additions at the top of the 'All Artists' list, which works for any new albums added since the copy, but it doesn't hold when I select a specific artist to see their albums.

Seems like Winamp could possible use the ID tag year and create some kind of indexing file when the library is scanned for quick referencing when launching or browsing.

It could even do searches for any files missing the year, altho this could be time consuming, so maybe just put any unknown year files at the end of the album list as an indication to be fixed.
