    I'm not sure what you mean by "organize" itunes album art and/or lyrics. I use GetLyrical to batch import lyrics and Harmonic to manually search for and add those that GetLyrical misses.

    For album art, I prefer higher quality artwork than iTunes downloads, so I use sites like Album Art Exchange and manually add artwork to albums.

    There's no app that would automatically download artwork from Amazon. One reason is Amazon may have multiple instances of an album, with varying quality of artwork, and some with no artwork at all. Amazon also doesn't have lyrics. Overall, Amazon is usually a poor resource for artwork. You're better off either letting iTunes automatically download artwork or search and add it manually, if you want the highest quality.

    I've tried GimmeSomeTune for lyrics and wasn't happy with it. GetLyrical is much better, IMO. With it, you can select your entire library and it will scan it all, downloading lyrics if they're available.
