I would like to see support added for the site http://www.theaudiodb.com/ to get mediadeta info for the music and album art any other info you can get off the site

if you want to know why you used this site over freedb, MusicBrainz, discogs and allmusic here is a post below that the creater and dev of site posted to tell people why


what's the benefit over discogs?

- Its simpler (We only allow albums and EP's here) so browsing the site is really nice. Discogs is way too complicated for me.
- Faster API (It should be ridiculously fast, typical response time is less than a 20th of a second for a query)
- Standard JSON API (It should never change)
- High coverart, artist and fanart standards
- Totally user generated (If you don't like something, change it)

It might be okay for artwork and biographies, but I'm not sure how well it will work for metadata when they only allow one version of each album.
In the last 24 hours I've tagged about six albums where the tracklist differed between countries of release.
Bee excellent to each other...

It's nice looking site and simple API but there's a long way to go on the data.

Looks good and seems to have the potential to be something great in the future

+1 But mainly for album art. Could be a nice reliable option besides Last.fm art.
(I know you can change the default, Last.fm finds everything just shit quality, and Google only finds like 60%. The others only find the cover like 10% of the time.)
