What gave you that impression?I suspect these posts mentioning tag writing as a feature would give most people the impression it can write tags. https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112914.msg944573.html#msg944573https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112914.msg944768.html#msg944768https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112914.msg945847.html#msg945847@nanogirl21 , I don't use this script myself but the instructions seem clear enough in the readme??@obsidian1066 , try the latest version of the script. There was an issue with allmusic but it has been fixed.

@jazzthieve: tag writing. The next version will enable setting the number of similar artists that can be written. I did look into obtaining mbids from last.fm. However, they weren't always accurate. In particular, in cases where there is more than one artist of the same name, incorrect obscure mbids were often returned for reasonably popular artists, even if the search included both album & artist names
@woolybullyIt should just work as you want with default settings. I just checked my various artists albums and they're displaying fine, e.g.Album Artist=Various ArtistsArtist=BostonDisplays biographies for BostonFor info lfm look-ups for biographies always use whatever is defined for %BIO_ARTIST% in server settings (right click >sources > server settings [opens biography.ini]). The default is to check the artist field first. AM look-ups for both bios & reviews require matching an album name to facilitate discerning artists of the same name, and these look-ups use %BIO_ALBUMARTIST% - %BIO_ALBUM%. However, once bios are obtained %BIO_ARTIST% is used for loading the bios and %BIO_ALBUMARTIST% - %BIO_ALBUM% for loading the reviews.Check the server settings especially the %BIO_ARTIST% and %BIO_ALBUMARTIST% definitions, if you've changed them. You can always reset server settings (biography.ini) to default values (rename biography.ini to something so you have a back-up & restart foobar2000 to create a new one with default settings). Biography.ini should be in foobar2000\yttm\biography.ini.If, after ensuring server settings are at default values, the issue persists, then I need more info. Please post a screen shot of properties so I can see all the metadata and also post the server settings.
JScript Panel v2 (beta): There are plenty of breaking changes so only people who know how to edit their own scripts should even consider this. Testing on a portable install would be a good idea!!
