iTunes Match doesn't match every song on an album

    So it's now December 5th and I'm trying to match my AC/DC collection.  I see that althought I can follow the link from the song to the iTunes Library's version of the song (click on the option arrow next to a song in iTunes 11) it won't find the very same song in iTunes Match.  The song in iTunes Match is 1 second shorter than my track version.  I'm thinking of downloading the song, deleting from iTunes Match and trying to shorten it and upload again... any bets on the result?...

    I have had the 2003 remasters of the AC/DC catalog for a while, and except for (oddly) Back in Black they were all uploaded. Following another tip on this forum I converted the AAC files to Apple Lossless, deleted the originals from iTunes and the Cloud, waited for the converted tracks to show "removed" then added them to the cloud and I got them to match.


    Then I deleted the ALAC files, and downloaded the newly matched tracks.

    Wow,i see that too.I just cliceked the link to a song that is NOT matched, it says "uploaded" but out of 22 songs on the CD, this is the only one not matching. I see that my copy is 1 second longer then the one in iTunes, yet i ripped it FROM THE CD..


    So, it matched 21 songs from the cd, but 1 didnt because it was 1 second to long... Nice Apple

    Does anybody know if Apple is working on this? I subscribed last month and the match process seems hit or miss. I have CD's that I ripped and all but a couple of tracks get matched, I dont get it. I tried removing songs from iTunes and iCloud and reimporting them but they still got uploaded.
