MusicBrainz.org – Comprehensive Music Info March 22, 2007Posted by Ced in Info, Music.
MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site.
“This site is intended to be a free, on-line encyclopedia of music information. We (and you, if you decide to join us) are building an open-source database containing all the information you would ever want to know about songs, releases, and artists.” [MusicBrainz]
As compared to Gracenote’s CDDB, MusicBrainz is free, while CDDB is a commercial service. It sort of continues where FreeDB has left off.
