    I love the UI provide by Tag&Rename. It's very intuitive. Browsing my collectiong using a tree structure on the left and selecting a folder would automatically refresh the track listing. Right-click to edit tags. Sadly, it's windows only.

    I've played around with various taggers like Kid3, tagger, tagr, picard, yate and etc and I find them cumbersome to use. I've also used the wine version of mp3tag and it's just not as good as the windows equivalent. I cannot edit some of the more important settings like renaming files using tags.

    Perhaps you have suggestions I haven't used? thanks a lot :)

    I know I'm late to this thread but I found a decent replacement for T&R. It's called Meta. It's on the Mac App store or the developers website: https://www.nightbirdsevolve.com/meta/

    I'm a long time T&R user and just recently got an iMac. T&R was the last app I was looking and I tried a few including Kid3 but, I didn't really like anything. I chose to continue using my Windows laptop and T&R for my tagging purposes. Found Meta doing a Google search, tried it out and really enjoyed it. It's not as good as T&R but, it's a suitable replacement and the best I've found so far for MacOS, IMO.

    My tagger of choice right now is YATE. But I'll try Meta if I can.

    This program is one of the only reasons I installed VM Ware and Windows. This is bar none one of the best tagging software out there. I feel the pain.

    I have been using this program for a while now and really like it. https://www.amvidia.com/tag-editor

    In fact you might be able to get a code from the code sharing section which is where I got my copy. It is actually pretty good.

    The best T&R replacement IMHO,

    whole albums--- check
    gets artwork--- check
    customizable tags--- check
    searches online for tags--- check

    Have not used T&R since I started using it, ran Fusion just for T&R, no longer
