I want to organize my mp3 music by genre, but many of the songs are completely missing genre information. Some are incorrectly labeled as well, and some have useless variations (e.g., "Blues-rock" and "Blues Rock").

What's the best method for cleaning up a mp3 library?

One existing solution that does not seem to work anymore is the plugin/extension for MediaMonkey called GenreFinder 5. Does an equivalent solution exist?

beets gets the genres from Last.fm, similar to GenreFinder.
