    I run Foobar in Wine via Play On Mac. It works really well.

    I use mp3tag and foobar. Both work very well. You can link mp3tag with discogs to download artwork.

    but no reply to my question as to whether doing so (making a mass change to my floyd folder and calling all "Artist: Pink Floyd") would be a big no no??

    Depends on whether you are a purist about re-seeding the absolute original files again, or anticipate that you'll want to join in and help seed anyone else in the future.

    Personally, I'm not such a purist and consider metadata changes to be fair game. Especially if you have FLAC file sets with FFP files instead of MD5 files. FFPs remain unchanged when you change the metadata, because by definition the FFP is a hash ("fingerprint") of the original WAV data. Another reason why the FLAC format is so so so soooo much superior to SHN. MD5 checksums will change however, because they are "dumb", in the sense that they are a hash of the entire file (including metadata), not just a hash of the audio part.

    Default Mutagen

    Anyone ever mess with the Mutagen python library? That's what I've been primarily using to bulk fix my metadata. Has support for FLAC and ID3 tags; a bit of a learning curve but its been working very well for me.

    Yeah, I've used that for one of the scripts I have. But I'm not really expert with it yet.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned Picard. That's what I use to tag and organize my music folders.

    Picture a shithouse with no f*ckn drain!
    Picture a leader with no f*ckin brain!
