Question MusicBrainz links for albums

Would links to MusicBrainz album entries be good resources to add to albums? I know a lot of artists have links to their MusicBrainz pages but I don't see any for albums.

Whar would be the point? There's almost never any info there that there isn't here and when there is it can just be filled in here.

A big plus for me personally is MusicBrainz has much better options for tagging. FreeDB only gives limited options and can be harder to use depending on the tagging program you use, while MusicBrainz gives multiple options for tagging outside of TOC lookup (the big one being fingerprint scanning) and can give more metadata that either isn't exposed by the FreeDB interface (artist credits per track, record label, barcode) or just isn't stored on VGMdb (ISRCs). I know this isn't the focus of VGMdb but it is still a nice thing to have for users.

It can also be used to look up non-videogame/anime relationships and non-artist/album relationships in general. For example: looking for instances of a recording or song in other releases easily.
