Cheers.

"imagine we want to browse year->artist. Such as 1982->ABBA. We thus want a
list of albums that contain songs written by ABBA and released in 1982. How
do we solve this without searching, and without creating artist-specific
data tables?"

I would propose you build a key/index for each type of search you would
want to perform. Then it is you who gets the choice of what fields to
catalogue and search-by.
