    Being able to manually match up a release would be very helpful. I have several box sets and deluxe editions that Bliss simply cannot find a match to the appropriate release. If I go on Discogs or Musicbrainz and do a search I can find the exact release without a problem. I have spent several hours trying to tweak file names and tags trying to get Bliss to make the correct match to no avail. The latest release I've run into this problem with is a box set by Dead Can Dance simply titled "1981-1998". Bliss keeps trying to match it to their self titled album not the box set. The box set is not even being listed as one of the possible matches under linked releases. It is very frustrating to know what release you have, can find the release in Discogs or Musicbrainz but not be able to get Bliss to make the appropriate connection.

    Another situation I have run into where a manual override would be handy is when Bliss links to several dozen releases and one of them has incorrect data so you have to dig through all the linked releases to find the one causing problems. It would be a lot more convenient if there was a manual override that simply allowed you to enter the Discogs or Musicbrainz URL to the correct release.
