In Top Albums, Last.fm can, at this time, only show track artists, but merges releases under the album artist tag (you see that if you navigate to your library, put e.g. "Various Artists" as artist name and look at the releases).
Be sure your ID3 tags contain the same information in the "album artist" field, otherwise they won't be collected under the same album artist but use the track artists as album artists.

And then you have 30 artists as the album artist, meaning 30 albums instead of the 1 that all the artists on the compilation are on. I wish someone would understand this properly.
