Depending on what you want to achieve...

I have a tool that, given a directory of mp3 files plus the associated
CDDB (or FreeDB) info, sets the ID3 tags and (optionally) renames the

Another tool tries to fetch the CDDB (or FreeDB) info given a
directory of mp3 files.

All tools are written in Perl (version 5.6.1 or better) and require
some standard CPAN packages, and the id3v2 tool.

You may also check out the perl module MP3::Album on CPAN.
