This tagger is it

Scrub your music collection clean of erroneous ID3 tags with this robust and free MP3 tag editor.

This batch MP3 tag editor is, in the words of a user, "simply indispensable." If you're looking for a freeware ID3 tag editor with an auto-tagging feature sourced from FreeDB, Amazon, or discogs, you could do much, much worse than Mp3tag.

Besides checking and correcting song tags en masse, the lightweight application sports batch and single edits to effect such changes as case changing, auto-numbering, tag and track name flipping, and user-defined actions. There's playlist support and configuration exporting in six formats including CSV, HTML, and RTF. Support for more than two dozen languages offer the program up for international use, and a Favorite directory makes it easy to return to your music assuming you keep all your tracks in the same root folder.

The interface is a bit too simple, though. It won't be hard for anybody to navigate once you get used to the busy Toolbar and using mouse-over labels to identify button functions, but it certainly could be clarified with bigger buttons, or at least more easily identifiable icons. At worst, the user interface will slow you down, but in no way should it stop you from using this top-flight MP3 tag tweaker.
