nunfetishist> The reason that shine sounds so poor is quite simple - it doesn't have a psychoacoustic model.
As for FreeDB, I've found it to be relatively accurate for most of the albums I have and it's only the obscure ones that it fails on. However, it really does depend on how much you use it and what genre of music you're into. It's an incredibly wide field. Plus, of course, very few CDDB/FreeDB clients actually support the alternate database entries for similarly hashed albums which doesn't help in the slightest - corrected entries are never even given as an option to the user. It would be interesting to know whether MusicMan provides such an interface. Or whether it's based on AcornCD.
