    "Tagging Bliss"

    November 16, 2013   |   By RoelandDeWindt

    Version: MusicBrainz Picard 1.1

    Pros

    Re-tagged and ordered my 35K music collection (mp3, mp4, flac, mixed) with minimal manual interaction.

    Cons

    Will not tag all music know to human kind.

    Summary

    It's free. It works on Mac. It doesn't scan your hard disk. It fixes bad tags and is easy to use.

    "Works as claimed"

    August 14, 2013   |   By Drew-Drew

    Version: MusicBrainz Picard 1.1

    Pros

    Can't argue. The app does what it claims.

    Cons

    The interface is a little bland.

    Summary

    Considering it's free, it rocks!
    Some of the other reviewers are making claims that don't appear to be justified. I don't see any evidence to support what they are saying. Maybe they work for another (pay to play) company?

    "TROJAN. Coded by the MB Dev Team"

    May 26, 2013   |   By resolutionfusion

    Version: MusicBrainz Picard 1.1

    Pros

    A free way to quickly infect your computer giving remote access and scan of everything on your hard drives, all while the Devs discuss their progress on IRC.

    Cons

    Well it will basically decimate your computer under the guise of poorly tagging your music files, so there's that. Then it also scans everything single thing on your hard drive, so there's that extra level of personal violation and theft.
    Plus it's purpose is to remove and rewrite the tags of audio files, but they also added code to duplicate them. So now you have a zombie Apocalypse of your beloved music catalog, all your restore points lost, and Data Recovery has turned into Pet Semetary.
    You're likely going to feel pretty physically ill.

    Summary

    The MusicBrainz Dev has, for some reason, worked long and hard on this codem, while publically discussing it on recorded IRC chat. For someone reason this doesn't seem to be a vastly well known fact even though scans have been reporting it for ages--to the dev team, who took a few minutes here and there to call them "false positives" and carried on.

    Every support email goes to this dev team, this is how I was infected. I sent an email to the support team and they returned with the infected link, already tested by them, and then enthusiastically asked me to let them know how it worked. Upon reporting that the link worked they replied with "Awesome, have a nice editing, Nicolas. PS since I guess you've been out of MB for a while, feel free to mail with any questions about the new ways of doing things and all that."

    https://chatlogs.musicbrainz.org/musicbrainz-devel/2013/2013-05/2013-05-25.html (it goes back months and months)

    I spent a year trying to recover the 14 years I'd accumulated on a destroyed hard drive. Not only did I lose it all again, to truly never be recoverable, but I did so in exchange for generously handing it all over, with passwords and banking information and every damn thing in the world.

    Does that about sum it up?
