MusicBrainz Picard

2.2.3
21 November 2019

Label and tag your music with correct ID3 tags.

Overview

MusicBrainz Picard lets you label and tag your music with the correct ID3 tags of artists, albums, etc. quickly and easily.

Picard is the next generation MusicBrainz tagging application. This new tagging concept is album oriented, as opposed to track/file oriented like the ClassicTagger was. Picard is written in Python, which is a cross-platform language, and makes use of cross-platform libraries - this allows the same code to run both on Windows, Linux, and OS X.

LOVE this program! LOVE this program! LOVE this program! So may screwed up tags -- fixed! No typing, copying, pasting, searching for cover art, etc, etc, etc. Free and works beautifully. One complaint, I didn't download it years ago.

I just reorganized and tagged a pretty messy 25000+ tracks collection with it. It detected about 2/3 correctly, half of the rest was just picking another release - the other half of the rest was in fact hard work with manual searching or filling in data from discogs. But it did the job well. Some minor flaws (not loading all files from a large folder, not matching tracks that have "featuring" stuff in the title), but not a showstopper.

I use this all the time but I'm pretty sure I don't know how to use it. I probably only use 10% of its features.

A great tagger backed by the the best public music database. Several caveats: If your music is very esoteric or obscure, then it may not be found with a fingerprint search or tag search. In which case you should add it to the MusicBrainz database. ;) The only quibbling with the application itself is that it's not very Mac-like in the interface.

This is a good but flawed app, used judiciously it can match your songs accurately from the muscbrainz site. But it is difficult and confusing to use, only uses muscbrainz, crashes if you use it on more than a 1000 songs and looks very very ugly.

This looks good but give too much wrong info (98% or so is wrong as in totally wrong destruction) and couldn't identify a majority of tracks at all without acoustic id (which doesn't seem to work in practice). In addition you can't block correct tags from being "corrected" in any sane way. I went with MPFreaker that at $10 is certainly worth the fee as it actually works · for at least 30% of my files but nothing wrong  — and let's you tell which tags to leave alone.

To be fair, of your results will vary depending on what music you have and the state you collection is in, but mine was in pretty good shape, except for release names (album). Also, the complete lack of — or difficulty in finding — prevention of correct tags is the basis for my review.
