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).

I use both sevices , when I can't find an album in one, I search in an other.
This is with the software mp3tag.
With EAC, I just use freedb.

Which is the most accurate?

Hard to tell, as every user entry are probably not checked one by one.
One I got a double CD, and realized that the titles for CD1 where inverted
with titles of CD2, at MusicBrainz.

Notice that last Sound Forge version , use neither of these services, but a commercial equivalent "gracenote".
