MP3 Tag editor

Now I've got a 128gb card in my phone, I've started dumping shitloads of my music on there. One thing this has highlighted, however, is the shocking state of the mp3 tags on some albums.

I'm getting albums split into 2 or 3, if the artist has collaborated with someone else who is listed as one of the artists for example. Others just have the artist missing.

I can edit these in batches using Jet Audio player on my phone, but is there a really quick way to sort this shit out on my PC first? I know there are various tag editors, but which are the quickest/easiest?

Cheers

I've had decent results with the Musicbrainz tagger.

It really depends where the mp3s have come from though as to the detection rate. If it's ripped from CDs or from an online store (eg itunes) it'll work perfectly. If you've assembled stuff from ripping off youtube videos and p2p then less so.

Similar to EG I use this http://picard.musicbrainz.org for automatic tagging.

Cheers lads. At the moment, for the "important" stuff (Gary Moore discography for example), I'm going to reacquire them, as the originals are utterly fucked. It'd be quicker if I sat down with a guitar and recorded the fuckers myself. The rest of the not too badly mangled albums, I'll have a go with your suggestions or maybe mp3tag, which I've only just discovered I had installed already, and which doesn't do too bad a job. The android apps are utter fucking wank tbh.
