Yet another 'can you try ____ post'…
e.g. more random thoughts
Open them in another tagging app like …
See if they can lookup & repair them, or look for odd feilds. Other apps like SongBird have tag editors that could let you see more or less info too.
Check your user owns and has write permission on the actual files in the Finder (Get info will tell you).
Take a look in the video tab to see if there are any fields filled in there, nuke them via the select all & get info trick.
Can you drag n drop the album files to /Users/Shared/afolder & create a new test user & import to the new iTunes to see if they are broken in there? It may be some obscure preference that is breaking this just for you.
If it works move them back to you account & see if they fall apart again, you may need to fix permissions after each move.

Or, instead of trying to trick iTunes how about having the geniuses at Apple just fix iTunes. Here's the easy fix. If the artist is the same and the album is listed as the same, then that trumps ALL other items that might be screwed up inside the song's DNA. ALL THOSE SONGS APPEAR IN ONE ALBUM WITH ONE ARTWORK!

Just fixed mine by changing the 'Album Artist' in Get Info > Info tab to "Various" in multi artist albums.
Now back to single albums rather than three or four.

that worked. then you can go back and change it back. still a pain, but at least it works. Still it doesn't always put the tracks in the right order.
