Ways of adding Genre tag

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f756fa98da0>

I used to rely on plugins to add Genre tag to my files, namely either lastfm/lastfmplus and wikidata. Neither of those 2 currently function properly with Picard 2.0, so I would like to ask if there is any other way of getting Genre tags?

Additionally, is it possible to add Genre according to the artist genre on musicbrainz? I know there is an option for it (I think) in Picard, but it doesn’t seem to be working for me.

I honestly lost track on the status of the last.fm plugins, but wikidata is supposed to work. What does not work?

Yes, there is an options for this (Options > Metadata > Folksonomy Tags > “Fall back on album’s artists tags…”, but it currently does not work due to some server side inconsistency:


Some albums just cause Picard to hang after lookup while loading the information. I think there migh be some info here: https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins/pull/145
