The team behind Beets describes this tool as a "media library management system for obsessive-compulsive music geeks." Beets allows users to sync their music collection to a database called MusicBrainz, a metadata library. In doing so, users both improve the MusicBrainz database and, in turn, are able to access a variety of information about their music. MusicBrainz provides provide listeners with accurate titles, artist tags, album art, and a variety of tags to help users organize their music. In addition, Beets allows users to search, sort, and categorize their music in a variety of ways.
