Problem sorting by track number

When I highlight this album and sort by track number they are all in order. As soon as I sort back by artist or album they unsort again! No other album is doing this:

Same problem happened to me but it was only one album that screwed up (Usher's Confession Special Edition).

Everything was in the right order except for 2 songs. I've tried sorting it out with everything and still doesn't work.

Firs, I'm not American... sorry by my english, ok!?

If the tag of each song doesn't match same artist, album, etc, iTunes will sort by others criteria. So, all you have to do is select all the songs of your album, right click, Get Info, Info (tab). Retype all shared informations like Artist, Year, Album etc.

It might works!

I had about 6 tracks that wouldn't sort right. It was due to them having "Album Artist" info that the other tracks didn't have. Still completely retarded that they were all the same album and just to that extra info it wouldn't sort them right.

Yeah, check weird stuff like disc numbers and other differences to solve the problem.
