Rhythmbox currently searches Amazon using the Artist and Album names,
whereas banshee looks up the ASIN (Amazon id) via MusicBrainz - which
gives different results.

In general the method Banshee uses gives better results, so we should
probably change to doing that too. It shouldn't be too hard (changing
plugins/artdisplay/artdisplay/, but no-one has
worked on it yet.

That was a bug, which I fixed in SVN last night.
