I've run some test rips before starting the BIG work and i'm quite impressed by BR.
However, i'm less impressed by Metadata providers, especially AMG.
I can understand that maybe the same disc has been released in who-knows-what other country so it shows up with a different title etc... that happened three times, and it's fine... however i've managed to find out (literally) mangled discs info.

A disc, "Sampler USA - Popular Repertorie" (1983 Polygram sampler) showed up as "[AMG] Wings Greatest". Problem is, the metadata infos were a mix between the real "Sampler USA" and "Wings Greatest", with some song titles corrects and wrong artist, then one totally wrong, then songs wrong and artists correct (can you imagine "Funkytown" played by Paul McCartney?).
I can't understand how this can happen unless AMG had crosslinked files. Any other explainaton welcomed.

BTW, i don't ever have a "Wings greatest" cd, so it's impossible that the mix-and-no-match-mess happened locally.

It can happen, I have seen it my self, only AMG would know why though.
