Windows Media Player 12 Sorting Artists By Year

In Windows Media Player 11, I used to sort the Artist Albums by Year. But in Windows Media Player 12, it seems like I don't have that choice anymore. It only sorts by Album's name alphabetically. What can I do to be able to sort by year? Thanks.

S0v3r3ign's answer works, but unfortunately it only seems to sort by reverse chronological order (so, newest album first).  You can click on the Album column to sort ascending, but when you go to another artist and then return to the previous one, it sorts in reverse order again.  I'm not sure why, and find it very annoying.  But if you want some kind of year sorting, well, this sort of works.

ClaudeBr, in WMP's library, click  Album on the left to view all albums. Then, click the Release year column to sort the albums by year.
