Which is really an unnecessary hack that I put in which can cause redundancy in certain view types that skins provide. The skin receives the artist information separately as well and should fully control whether it displays it or not. I've essentially abused a the 'album' field in this situation which is not the intent of XBMC's design.

As I said earlier. It is, and should, be up to the skin to decide which information is displayed or not. There should be no difference between how a list of music tracks is displayed from within this plugin and from within a regular xbmc music source pointing to your local files.
The problem in your case is that Rapier (which is the skin you use as I recall) simply doesn't do a good job of informing you regarding music. Other skins do display artist information and ratings in a track listing as the screenshot below demonstrates - and please don't ask how that album art got there, I don't know myself.
If you really want to have it your way, then I suggest you patch the code yourself. The relevant line in this case is in the default.py file in the plugin.audio.itunes folder
item = gui.ListItem( track['name'] )
Alternatively you could ask the Rapier guys to change their skin to display more information.

See the configuration
page on the plugin's wiki. Sounds to me like you have "auto-update" set to yes and "Hide Import Library item in main menu" set to yes. Manually updating is not required in this case.
