    I figure if they can include the cover art that they should make an attempt at the liner notes and lyrics....

    • Why don't you send them some feedback?

      I'm sure they thought of it already. Getting the liner notes and lyrics is a lot more intensive a project than stuffing a single image (scanned once) into all 12 tracks on a CD. There are probably plans in the works already to roll out a new set of AAC files in a year or two with liner notes and lyrics so (a) they have enough time to gather and QA the data and (b) you have more of an incentive to buy (or even, gasp! repurchase) tracks.

      • Your grasp of the obvious continues to be prodigious.

        • If this is so obvious, then why ask for liner notes and lyrics in the first place?
          • I suggested that they might attempt it, not that it was an original idea or that it would not take a large amount of work to do it. Apple is the innovator and I'd like to see them try to make the standard for this kind of data so that every song could have the lyrics, band members names, the year of the recording, artists notes about the song, etc. The album cover is easy. It's all rather obvious except whether or not they'll do something like this or if there are reasons for not considering it.
