freedb idiots

I hate freedb. It's at the point where I'm not convinced it's worth downloading track titles, especially when I usually end up entering or correcting them myself.

Example: I get the titles for a CD, they're all in capitals. So I end up with "STARLIGHT EXPRESS ~ CARL WAYNE". Oh look, and one's typoed. I don't believe Andrew Lloyd Webber ever created "COSE EVERY DOOR". Never mind that I want something different in the artist field, but that's just personal preference.
