I don't know if such a thing exists - but is there an app that can go through your iTunes library and make sure songs are correctly tagged, have the correct year, are the full album (no tracks missing) and so on?

I just dumped about 100GB of music into iTunes and some of it is all over the place and I don't really want to manually tweak it all (though I may have to).

Improperly tagged MP3s are not iTunes' fault. It can only work with the information given.

Anything that uses MusicBrainz should help you out - for example, iEatBrainz works quite well on the occasion I've used it.

I purchased the Gold version of this yesterday and have set it to work on my 29109 track iTunes library and it is going well.

It has found many a track and album name from just about nothing along with changing the genre, track number and cover art etc.

The one complaint i do have is that it is very slow. I'm currently running a dual 2.66Ghz Mac Pro with 5Gb RAM. My iTunes library has a HD of its own along with a reasonably good net connection and it still seems to chug along. The load on each core averages at about 60% utilization when cleaning up songs....

Depending on what you throw at it it can take 5- 20 seconds to work out what needs to be modified for each track.

All up it is a good product and my iTunes library hasn't looked better.

Does TuneUp prompt you to approve re-tagging tracks?
I'd like to give it a try, but I'm worried that it might incorrectly re-tag some things that I don't want re-tagged.

Sorry, I should've actually clicked the link.

"You have the option to review matches before you save your shiny, new ID3 tags or just hit the "Save All" button. "

I'll give it a go then!
