Is it a solo album if you did not write any of it?

So I finally got a cd from Amazon that could not be found in stores and started listening and really enjoying

I'm leafing through the cd booklet and was surprised to see the artist who the CD is listed under as being their solo cd wrote none of the material.
It brought up the question - Is it right to call it a solo album under a name when that person wrote nothing?

I know many artists bring in writers but I'm curious what people think.
One of the first times this really hit me was when I bought the first Jonny Lang cd when he was touted as being this brilliat up and comer and i found he wrote like 2 songs on the debut and it left a bad taste in my mouth and kinda felt duped after all the press he got.

Really enjoying the cd but at same point I wonder if its right to call it a persons cd when they wrote none of it
