I followed the instructions, dumped a copy in the User/library/scripts folder and it works OK for me, just a bit short on the lyrics for my kind of music. Also, unless your iTunes artist entry exactly matches the database, ie if you have "&" rather than "and" in dare I say Simon and Garfunkel, you have to input the name in the search yourself.
