Hi,

Does anyone have any experience of Freedb and Musicbrainz?

Which one do people prefer? Which has the best coverage? Which is the most accurate?

I live in the UK and buy most of my CDs here. My music is mainly rock/pop/folk/indie and I do have a small number of classical CDs (mainly opera).

Thanks,

In my experience, MusicBrainz entries tend to be more thorough than those of FreeDB. However, FreeDB's coverage is much wider. So I query MusicBrainz first and, if there's no match, try FreeDB next.
