Highest rating for MM in the Wired

The Wired magazine reviewed ID3 tag editors in the December 15 2006 issue. MediaMonkey came out on top with the highest rating.

Windows only
Free, pro version is $20
MediaMonkey's interface is full-featured yet streamlined and not crowded. The pleasing blue scheme has an embedded player with integrated ripping and burning features.

The application queries freedb and Amazon for tag data, and it can fix tags based on file names. Album art and the usual generic tag data can be pulled from the public databases, but lyric and comment retrieval are not included. Batch editing, both manual and automated, were easy to pull off.

Other features, like volume normalization and the ability to sync with your MP3 player, make MediaMonkey stand out, and the extra features don't interfere with ease of use.

Wired News rating:
8 out of 10

It's a rather weird review. They're all really unknown applications. None of those often mentioned on the forum were included. And I would think that MediaMonkey is more known than those mentioned.
Anyway any positive news is good.
