to complete with a few tools: is able to retag mp3's if you got all
files of one album in one directory. I'll query freeDB to try to
recognize the tracks, then repair the id3-tags. It's a great tool for
big tagging-jobs as well.

winamp with his new media library has become a nice mass-tagger as
well. In standart-configuration, it tries to guess artist, trackname,
album name and so on as you add the files to the libary. later on,
you're fast to search in all ways around.

hope that helps, manuel
