They are not great quality are they?

 

That 320 kbps recording is the same as the 50 kbps, just louder.  It's not actually better quality...  That's why I said, find a HQ version online (buy that one song) and test it (or find the original CD and re-rip that single song to 320).

Yup I know. Haha that's why I just could Not figure out why it sounded so terrible even though it was supposedly a good quality song. I only figured it out after trying the same songs on rhapsody and finding out they sounded a million times better even though they are only 128kbps. So now I'm working on fixing ALLLLLL of my itunes music.

This gonna take a while.
