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 like Music Brainz. You can get an account and fix errors in the database when you find them. This is nice because if you ever rip the same disc again, the info will be correct next time.

dBpoweramp's "PerfectMeta" system is probably the best compromise. I haven't had a disc yet that wasn't in at least one of the 4 databases it uses.
