    Ok, I have searched endlessly for a decent tagging tool but not found one thats spot on. Here are my needs:

    Search Amazon or equivalent for Album or Artist and tie up files with the tracks and insert the tag information.

    Use Multi-Tag editing on selected files

    Rename files based on tags

    Pretty simple I think but cannot find a nice decent app to do these. Any suggestions?

    Yeah there is a lot to it for your idea here since you say a lot of information is missing load your files then hit the auto correct, the clipboard with pen icon. Let it do its stuff whatever is missing/incorrect in the tags can be corrected by highlighting the column using a copy/paste operation to fill in proper values, once this is done to your satisfaction then a right click on any highlighted column for a rename from tags and save completes the process renaming your files how you specified.
