It doesn't make any sense to me why it would play songs by artist in alphabetical order either. It seems like the best way would be to play the albums in alphabetical order under an artist, and play the tracks in track order within the album.
I see where you're coming from now, those greatest hits albums throw everything off! For this type of situation, I recommend creating separate playlists on iTunes. If you need help doing this, check out:

Once this has been done and your iPod has completed indexing, give the voice command PLAY PLAYLIST XXX.

If you have additional questions, give me a shout.

Would it help if I used an MP3 from Microsoft?
To clarify, did you soft reset the iPod or perform a Master Reset on the SYNC system?
