I’ve got a confession to make: I have a compulsion about iTunes track data: I’m obsessed with making sure it’s accurate and, more importantly, consistent. This is especially true of classical music: I have a format that I like all my classical tracks to follow when it comes to name, artist, and album that I think makes it easier to find the music I want on my Mac and on my iOS devices.

Many people want to get accurate and consistent data about their files on iTunes and don’t know how to do it. In fact this is an easy thing which can be done by iTunes.
