I think there should be an option to have the songs that don't have PUID's and that didn't change based on match to MusicBrainz --- basically, the songs that didn't find a match to MusicBranz --- to be set aside, so that one could manually look them up to MusicBrainz.

People might still want this option even if they have a high rating on what percentage of similarity a track has to have to MusicBrainz data, because, even though their is no match, there could still be correct metadata for a song on MusicBrainz --- it's just that it wasn't matched when Jaikoz automatically did the match because the similarity wasn't close enough becuase of the rating the user put for the option of how similar the metadata had to be to MusicBrainz.

So, basically, a user, like myself, could have songs that don't have PUID's and didn't find a match on MusicBrainz because of the high percentage they set --- so those songs could still be messed up, and Jaikoz still can't do anything about it.

Now, I know a user in this situation COULD just set the percentage similarity option lower, but he may not want to do that --- he may rather look up the songs manually.

And I would want the manual metadata look up done by album, to speed up the process.

Could this done in the form of a filter, i.e Only Show Songs Without MusicBrainzId, or is this not what you mean ?

Please explain this further, I think the problem would be that it makes sense to the user to process records in the order they are listed in jaikoz, but they could be sorted in any way they, not neccesarily by album order

The MusicBrainzID has nothing to do with it. I'm just saying that the songs that didn't generate a PUID AND didn't match up to data on the MusicBrainz server --- so, basically, the songs Jaikoz could do NOTHING with --- should be set aside so that they could be manually looked up to MusicBrainz metadata.

And, on the second thing, I just mean that, when the lookup is done, it should be done by album, not individual songs, to speed up the process.

Does that make sense?

The MusicBrainzId has everything to do with it , as it determines that Jaikoz did sucessfully match against MusicBrainz. Ive added the filters as explained, please give it a go - it is availble in the new release released today (Jaikoz 1.9)

Okay. Let me try to explain what I mean one more time. The songs that Jaikoz didn't touch, because it couldn't --- the songs that didn't have PUID's and didn't have a close enough percentage match [the percentage you put in the MusicBrainz settings] to MusicBrainz to change --- should be separated at the end, so that THOSE songs could be manually looked up, since Jaikoz couldn't do anything with them.

Yes, but if you run Tag from MusicBrainz on all your files the list of files that you want to put aside because MusicBrainz did not match them is IDENTICAL to the list of files you would get by selecting 'Action/Filter MusicBrainz UniqueIds/MusicBRainz Unique id Does not Exist', have you tried it ?
