I've done this before, this is just a small part of my collection. Mostly things I bought to fill out missing pieces of my CD collection over the past few months.
I don't know what's "right", but I try to keep the metadata as consistent as possible. I don't understand where labeling the artist as first name last name came from, or worse yet why composer is first name last name, so I change that as I go along. Really do you ever really want to listen to some Wolfgang? Genre can also be all over the map, so I try to make it consistent with my library.
Frankly, I pleased if the song titles are right! I really hate it when some bozo titles the songs Artist-Song name, or has typos in them.
I also loath ripping classical music, almost everything is wrong with the metadata and titles more often then not.
