CDDB

Posted by Tim Riley Mon, 28 Nov 2005 15:22:00 GMT

I have been reencoding some of my music into AAC since getting an iMac. Whenever I do this I am reminded about how awfully corrupt some of the CDDB/GraceNotes database is. For someone picky about his metadata, the misspellings, inconsistent capitalisation, and wrong track titles are terrible. I shared my true feelings with my friend Vidar:

Safari_Al: Using CDDB is like walking into a bar and saying, “Pour me a cheap beer into a used glass! And hey, throw some old needles in there while you’re at it!”

Vidar: “You want broken glass with that?”

Safari_Al: “Only if it’s bloodied.”
