Using %Artist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg I managed to get Lifescapes - (1997) Summer Thunder.jpg. Are you sure you did it right? Options > Validate > Tracks > add %Artist% - (%Year%) %Album%.jpg to ComboBox next to Import Artwork...

Maybe I can email you some of my 8 Kbps MP3 so that you can see for yourself ?
On a more general note, I never understood the fascination with ratings. Ratings are subjective, and only ever valid for one person - the rater, eg. myself. I already know what I like. I can look at any given song in my playlist and tell you whether I like it or not, without a rating tag.
Other than that, why would I keep music in my playlist that I don't like? If I were to rate a song 'zero' because I hate it, I might as well just delete it.
Done. I can't wait for your feedback !
@McoreD*I was wondering if you could provide the formula you use for the rating system... mainly because i use foobar and don't intend to use itunes anytime soon, but the rating idea seems very interesting.
In other words, that's exactly what iTunes 7.x would do if you selected "info" on one particular track, then "picture", then "add a picture", then you look for the picture on your hard drive, then "OK". The picture will not be embedded into the track
Stop right there, Jose, when you add a picture manually, iTunes embeds the picture to *into* the file -- into the file that you did Get Info and added the picture. iTunes will also create an .itc file so that other tracks can access that.
Speaking of generating .itc files, it is certainly doable once the ITC specification is released by Apple. I had a look into there, there have been number of hacking attempts to figure out a spec by enthusiasts.
However, I still don't understand why exactly we would need an add-on to create the ITC files if iTunes can do it by itself?
So basically what you are looking for is, adding artwork to one file, logically the first track of the album, so the rest of the tracks can access the artwork via the ITC file created.
