Populate iTunes song tags with AllMusic genre and style info

I think AllMusic's genre and style info is great, and I find it way more helpful than the basic "Rock" type info you see in iTunes, or the more esoteric tags I find on Last.fm. I've got a pretty large database of songs, how can I automatically use the AllMusic info to populate "Genre" and "Grouping" tags in iTunes?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Ed,
Thanks for the kind words about our genre and style info.

As far as we know, there isn't really a good automated method to populate your iTunes music library with our tags.

There is a company called Roon who gets their data from the same provider we do and their service maps a lot of an individual user's music to the same tags we use: https://roonlabs.com/

You may want to give their software a shot.

Thanks Zac. I'll check them out, and appreciate your willingness to point me in the right direction, even if it means looking elsewhere.
