    I know when it first stated there were various issues, but curious how it is these days. Is it pretty reliable with the matching? Does it still not update the tags?

    Tags and reliability when listening to songs is still piss poor. Wife selects a Bob Dillon song, it plays AC/DC but shows the album art for Dillon. :confused:

    Matching for my songs was pretty good (about 94% matched). What bugs me the most is the not updating of tag's. I think about a 1/3 of my songs (while viewing through match) are showing no album art, or the wrong album art.

    If I look at the files on the desktop through iTunes they are fine.

    AppleCruncher, I have not had the issue with "reliability when listening", but to be fair I tend to just shuffle play all songs so I am not trying to play a specific song or artiest.

    Still terrible for classical. For example, iTunes matches only 5 of the 32 Beethoven piano sonatas while Amazon cloud drive matched them all. Guess which service I'll be renewing when the time comes?
