Hi I've had this problem today. Album is showing in hidden but when I click unhide it won't come out of there. Have you got any tips why? I've removed the album from my library as some songs were missing. I really hate this new iTunes on my Mac and my iPhone!! Why did they have to change something that didn't need changing?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I had the problem also, I logged out of iTunes then rebooted the phone, then logged back in. It worked like a charm.
