Because if it is, it shouldn't. The album name shouldn't be relevent, since one song can be on more than one album, and, if someone has a song, trying to match partly based on the current album name might make it harder to find the song on THAT SPECIFIC ALBUM, and it could alter the percentage of similarity, which could cause it not to change.

Yes it does match on the album if a value has been provided. Yes songs can be on many albums but by default surely it makes sense to return the top match the one that matches on title/artist/trackno and album rather than only on title and artist. If you have a MusicIP Puid then that takes precedence and the album is only one of a number fields that help pick the best match for a PUID for the cases where one PUID matches more than one track.

If you are not getting any matches at all you can always reduce the matching percentage required, or use the Manual Match to see the top ten choices for each track.
