Gracenote correctly tagged a cd that was only released on computer burned discs(and only 200 were made).A cd that google had 0 results for when i searched.
It correctly tagged magazine give aways from the 90s and even tons of files that had NO info in the properties.
I hope the new service is good but i don't see how it can ever compare.
It's a sad day in music history.
There still are other (albeit a few and not as convenient as Winamp's implementation) taggers that utilise Gracenote for their song detection and info; i mentioned them here

*If you have issues with Winamp, ensure you have the currently latest version Winamp v5.666 build 3516 & its patches that fix several issues
*To remove the currently dead Winamp online stuff, see here: removing online stuff
*If you miss the Autotag feature: Gracenote CDDB Autotag alternatives
