    Isn't this a good thing though? I'd hate to see the wrong info rather than no info unless I can easily change it myself, that is.

    That is corrent when indeed the matches are different 'artists', but if you search for 'anouk', you'll find 3 mathes. One 'anouk pop/rock 2008 - 2010' one anouk 2000 and another one with different 'years'. All three are the same women.

    Don't know if it is possible to change this ofcourse.

    That's an issue of the online database. Garbage in, garbage out. Not much one can do if tagging of artists is wrong.

    I think it's allmusic.com. Is she tagged as "P!nk" or "Pink"? I don't get any hits for "Pharrell" either, maybe I have to rename the album artis for the album "In My Mind" to "Pharrell Williams" even though he was known as "Pharrell" back then?

    Emph,

    You're right, it's P!nk. I will need to retag all the albums. Not a big deal but how would one know which writing to use. However Bryan Adams becomes a Brian on allmusic.com and that can't be correct.

    That is a different person (engineer / producer) for some reason Bryan Adams just doesn't exist there.

    The are a few oddities (the two main ones you have found) but if you struggle try searching manually using a browser.

    Hey,

    Long time not seen you around ;). Can you comment on the issue of "The", i.e. when MP sorting is done when ignoring articles and prepositions?

    I don't really have any time for MP any more (and I don't actually have a working MP setup at the minute :eek:)

    The "The" thing will be a bug (well actually something I never found time to implement properly).
    @Sebastiii if you want to fix then you will see in GUIMusicBaseWindow.cs line 1473 you have
    Code (C):
    1.         if (_strippedPrefixes)
    2.         {
    3.           //Fix ME
    4.           //artist = AudioscrobblerBase.UndoArtistPrefix(song.Artist);
    5.         }
    (there are three occurrences of this)

    This was code in the old Audioscrobbler plugin that was not copied across. this should probably be in one of the util classes (and there is probably a lot cleaner way of doing it than the original code)
