Just installed this a few days ago and it has been working great. What is helpful about this, is you can join TheAudioDB website which is where it pulls information from and add new artist, and albums. Then once you add it on there, you can pull it to your forum as well.

You can also further edit the album information and images directly on the forum, so you don't necessarily have to go edit it for something minor on TheAudioDB. This is also helpful if you want to change the album title to English maybe even though it pulled it as Japanese from TheAudioDB due to it being a Japanese album.
