    The good news - it's about time they implemented this.
    The bad news - they did it in a crappy way.

    It's in the Get Info -> Sorting area. And it works, list the CDs by year or just numbered 1,2,3,etc and it orders them how you want.

    The problem ? You have to update the value for every track. Unlike some Get Info things, like album name, where you can change all the tracks on a CD - this one you have to hit Next and the number, Next and the number, Next and the number.

    It's a great feature and a crappy implementation.

    Right, inside a CD it's track by track.

    But by setting the Album Sort field you can now have the CDs one by one chronologically as opposed to alphabetically. But it's poorly implemented.

    Turns out you can set the first track then right click on it and select "Apply Sort Field" to set the rest of the CD the same.
