What does a compilation or various artists release mean?

Compilated doesn’t mean it’s complicated.

If a release with multiple tracks has four or more primary artists anywhere on it, even if they’re on different tracks, you’ll need to classify it as a compilation or various artists release. 

An example of a compilation album would be the Now That’s What I Call Music! series.
