I’ve been having the same “crash on certain artists” issue as Thom. I’m using an ipad third generation running iOS 7.0.4. with DPS 1.4.7.
I thought perhaps it was due to a corrupt itunes database, so tried deleting and reloading all my music and deleting the db files and reloading – to no avail – which led me to these forums. I’m relieved it’s not just my issue, but that doesn’t really help with the actual issue.
In the interim, I’ve created playlists in the regular ios Music app with all the songs from the artists, but that’s far from ideal.
