the advanced search feature doesn't work for classical music when I filter by star rating. For example I filter by Classical/2017/4.5 and 5 star albums and got nothing except Chick Corea who is a jazz artist.

The Chick Corea album appears in the list because it has elements of the Classical style "Vocal Music" and the genres assigned to the album by our editors are Jazz and Classical.

I don't know the total number of classical albums have been released so far this year that match the criteria of 5 or 4.5 stars, but you're right. If I remove the star rating filter altogether I do see more 2017 classical albums with 4.5 stars.

We'll take a look.

Hey Joe,
We took a deep dive into this and I think we have it resolved.
