I see how many applications like MusicMatch, detects (only introducing a music CD) wich albums it is. I think that it uses songs duration... but, anyone knows how it is done for sure??

Most commonly a service such as CDDB or MusicBrainz is used. CDDB uses track duration only, while MusicBrainz uses acoustic fingerprinting through the MusicDNS service.
