What a wonderful magazine... (C;MediaMonkey
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.
