Choose Online Databases to pull metadata from
Bliss presently pulls from multiple online databases for it's metadata. Allow the user to select which of the online databases they would prefer their metadata to come from. For example:
[ ] MusicBrainz
[ ] Amazon
Ok - but just to confirm: any slowness on those sites shouldn't affect bliss, because although we source the same data, it's served from our own database and servers.

MusicBrainz has been extremely slow lately. There are some times I've gone to a musicbrainz page and it takes over 30 seconds to load in.
The thought had occurred to me that MusicBrainz might be rate limiting me due to excessive queries. It's impossible for me to know if that's the case.
In any case, I find Discogs to not have this issue, and I think it would be extremely useful if I could tell bliss to exclude certain sources like MusicBrainz. It has nothing to do with their data, in my case, but it seems like using them as a source could be slowing down the whole process.
Another alternative is to do this at the linked releases level - i.e. only link releases from MusicBrainz, Discogs etc.
I wouldn't trust data from Amazon or Allmusic. MusicBrainz is not the best either. I have contributed a lot to Discogs so would much prefer to use it.
Why, is one database providing data you are not happy with?
