Grab iTunes track metadata from the Music Store Apps
Sometimes the tags that iTunes grabs from Gracenote when you rip a CD aren't very good: misspellings and things like that. But on the iTunes Music Store, the tags are usually correct. So if the album you're ripping is on the Music Store, you can just copy them from there. To do that you'll need the Copy Tag Info Tracks to Tracks AppleScript from Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes.

First find the album on the Music Store, then make a new playlist. Select all the songs on the Music Store and drag them to the playlist. Select all the tracks you just dragged, and run the script to copy the track data to the tracks that you ripped from the CD. Make sure you have the tracks in the right order!
