I been using winamp for about 7 years now myself. I had my friend nag me to try it to fix my mp3tags. I just wasn't happy with mp3tag. I love mediamonkey.

The playlist looks good on that picture, but that's all yet. ...
If you have a large collection of unsorted music files on your system, you might try this software...

Maybe my files are just sorted too well (E:\Artist\Title.ext), so I can't get the real clue here, but Winamp and Mp3tag still suit all of my needs.

Or am I missing any important thing?

Well I have always used Winamp for just listening to music (still do)

But after my collection started to get too big to manage through Windows, I decided to use MediaMonkey and it works just fine. If you look at the screenshot above, I have it configured to list all my genres then albumns in the tree on the left. Then when I choose an albumn, it list all the songs conveniently in the main window. If I have missing info, I can just edit it right there. If I don't know specific info, I can use it to search Amazon for track names and everything else. It's just really easy to use so that's it. If anything, you could always download it to try it out. Though some people are turned off by ALL that they see on screen at once. But after a day it'll seem second nature.

Haven't ever tried this software before, but the name "MediaMonkey" is cool. ;) program itself is cooler.......
