Based on my use of it for the last year or so, it looks like they're "screen
scraping".

Once or twice in the past, Allmusic.com have evidently changed the way they
format their site - at this point Tag&Rename can't retrieve the data
anymore. SoftPointer are normally pretty quick about updating the software
to fix this when it happens.

Yuck :/ I was afraid of that. Their HTML is horrendous to try and screen
scrape.
