The spelling of album and song titles is incorrect and inconsistent.

In contrast to English, it is incorrect to capitalize every word of titles in Russian.

Example. Currently, the best-selling album by Zemfira is spelled "Zit V Tvoey Golove,"* but should be "Zhit' v tvoey golove." Every song is also misspelled.

It is very inappropriate to apply English rules for Russian language. What's up with the grammar of iTunes Store managers? If you make such mistake, then at least be consistent and don't capitalize prepositions .

* "Zhit' V Tvoey Golove" means "To Live Inside Your Head"


P.S. I used Latin instead of Cyrillics because this site doesn't display the latter correctly. Considering that Russian support website points here for Q&A, it is odd not to support appropriate encoding.
