If you are "normalizing" the files with another program you are in fact transcoding them and thus wasted the whole point of doing the extraction this way in the first place. If you need to adjust the volume of the mp3s you've extracted then use MP3Gain ( http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/ ) or ReplayGain.

If you want to cut the resulting file down to a particular song/section use mp3DirectCut ( http://mpesch3.de1.cc/mp3dc.html ) which will crop mp3s without transcoding them.

If the mp3s you extract have bogus VBR headers that display about 10x the song length as it really is you can fix them with foobar2000 on Windows. It's in the [right click menu -> Utils -> Fix MP3 VBR Header]. Don't know how to do that on Linux.
