Even if you choose sort Albums by Title in iTunes, the result in iTunes can be anything but sort Albums by Title.
This turns out to be because iTunes 12 has added a Sorting tab to Get Info for file information.
In particular, Name, Album, Album Artist, Artist and Composer can be sorted by iTunes 12 as something quite different to Name, Album, Album Artist, Artist and Composer as input by the user.
The 'something quite different' is probably fields taken from the original tags, rather than from the user created tags.
I like sorting Album by Album Title, but because iTunes 12 has a Sorting tab with 'Album/Sort as', the order that ends up in your iPhone Music is not sorted by the user defined Album Title.
An attachment shows an example of how Name, Album, Album Artist, Artist and Composer fields can end up sorted quite differently to the user defined fields.
