Are they still offering this for free?

They're crazy, this has to be the best giveaway ever. We have over 48,000 FLAC recordings and rips, we work in radio... our library has been exclusively tagged by Mp3tag.

Easy, efficient & perfect tagging. Bravo to you.

Probably the best free software ever. This is what all software should be like. Flawless. I added album art to my collection, removed copyright tags, and removed composers all in one fell swoop. Yes, I'm anal-retentive.

Oh, did I say it's free? Sweet Jesus...
