I opened this topic as most of us if not all of us want to have good tags in files.

My intention is to create list of useful sites for seeking Correct Tag Data and is not generally popular.

NOTE: Search Info that Search Site need to support most basic Track/Album info and Album Art if possible, clean interface (for possible easier scripting) if possible multiple languages.

One of German sites that helped me a loot recently and will serve as example is:
CIAO! Die shopping community: (Example Of Search of CD I own)

Please test sites with various number of CDs/Albums to ensure results. Above Example is tested on 15 Compilations that I bought yesterday and lots of results from them are missing on Amazon

http://www.kompaktkiste.de/ is very good for all kinds of electronic music (not euro-dance or other chart-electronics)
http://www.juno.co.uk/ also for electronic music.
Both mostly have large cover artworks to download.

Album Covers

http://mega-search.net/ (If there is an album cover out there, this search engine will find it, mostly)

http://coverparadise.to/ (Clean album cover site. German, but easy to use nonetheless)
