Function Undefined

Web Language: Angular.js

Issue: Having trouble with the controller recognizing the variable name (AlbumListController). It works fine if the array is placed  within the body tag outside of the script. I can not figure out why it is not recognizing the variable and displaying the contents in the browser correctly (see attached file result.jpg). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!  Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Error: [ng:areq]

I only know the very basics myself but got your code working by adding a couple of small things:

1) app name
<html ng-app="albumApp">

Open in new window

2) app/controller init code:
    var albumApp = angular.module('albumApp', []);
    albumApp.controller('AlbumListController', AlbumListController);

Open in new window

(adapted to fit your code from this tutorial).
