Bug Description

Lots of artists have a title track, which is a track with the same name as an album. When searching for this album it's hard to tell which one is the album and which one is the track.

To reproduce:
1. Search for "and justice"
2. Lens returns all songs from "...And Justice for All", including the title track with the same name, AND one result that represents the album, all with the same album art, but I can't tell which one is the song, and which one is the album.

So we need some way to group them so it's obvious which ones are songs and which are albums, perhaps instead of just returning "Music" we can return 2 sections, "Songs" and "Albums" with the results in the right category or whatever. Or display the artwork representing the album differently than tracks.

As part of the big bug review for 16.04 LTS, I have tested this on 15.10 and the bug is still there. I think this is a feature request rather than a bug.
