Amazon seems to be truncating their query results.

For generic album titles like "Greatest Hits" you won't usually find the correct artist.

I have found that adding the %artist% to the %album% greatly improve the results.
For example if I rename the album from "Example" to "For Squirrels - Example" I'll get exactly what I want.

Is there a way to automate the query for Amazon? Yes!

1) press: [Windows]-R

2) enter: %appdata%\mp3tag\data\sources

3) edit in Notepad: MyAmazon.com.src

4) change line to: [SearchBy]=%artist% %album%

5) save as: &MyA&mazon.com.src

Now I can press [Alt]-S,M and get very precise results.
