Most important, thanks for everyone’s time. I went through all 133K files in my library a year ago, and realized how bad I screwed up my genres. I was hoping Picard and the wikidata plugin could save me from myself.
I found the Wikidata Plugin issue last year, and have been waiting for an update since. I have a “preview” version of the script, from GrokMan; https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pbrackin/picard-plugins/6bf8205cd419a92164bb9b2bfa86361a4fc5e9f0/plugins/wikidata/wikidata.py and it no longer hangs Picard.
I’m curious about what it’s actually pulling though. The best I can tell, It’s pulling the genres associated with the artist. Is that what it’s supposed to do? I was hoping for the genres associated with the album in Wikidata.
Jagged Little Pill, by Alanis Morissette. MusicBrainz release ID; aa531d88-d797-4a4e-8c57-71e28c4497b0. A “Lookup in Browser” takes me to the MB page, which has a link to Wikidata ID; Q750084.
Genre on Wikidata page for “Jagged Little Pill”; [alternative rock]
Genre on Wikidata page for “Alanis Morissette”; [alternative rock, rock music, experimental rock, pop rock, pop music, post-grunge, dance-pop, electronica, prog rock]

On a related note, is there a way to pull the genres from the MusicBrainz database from the MusicBrainz_releasegroupid? That’s the data I really want.
