MP3 tagging tool that matches well for Xbox Music

I have a pretty good size collection of music and I've been finding it difficult to get the cloud service to recognize albums for cloud play.

I use the "Match Album Info" tool a lot, but it's a little tedious so I've been looking for tools to help make it easier.

I found one called MP3Tag, and I get great results to tag as it pulls from Amazon, but Xbox Music doesn't necessarily match Amazon album information. It also, frustratingly, doesn't seem to pick up the tagging conventions from Zune either. Zune uses brackets a lot where it seems Xbox music likes parenthesis (it might be the other way around actually).

Has anyone found a good tagging solution that allows more automatic recognition of music for cloud play?

Also, Xbox Music is the worst. :)
