The CDDB: What's their problem?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Okay, so I have consistently found problems with the CD DataBase. Anymore it seems like anytime I try to get information on a CD in iTunes, the info that comes back is WRONG.

Once, they had an album listed as the right artist, but completely wrong album name! Yesterday, when querying, the results came back with some track names in the wrong places, and other track names that don't even exist on the album.

What's their deal? Are they so doped up on drugs they have lost the ability to read, or are chimpanzees running the operation (however, I have to think that even chimpanzees could do a better job)?

    It told me last night that Jonny Lang was John Hyatt...

    My only problem lately is that it's been giving me NO information. I have to send the request a second time to get it.

    The problem is they allow any stupid Joe User to add entries to the database, thereby giving people like yourself incorrect results.

    One time I put in I think it was a Matchbox Twenty CD and it the info was for Christina Aguilera.
