nope, for some reason the Ubuntu maintainers have decided to package 
rhythmbox without the dependency on the correct libmusicbrainz library 
needed to query musicbrainz.org for CD and track information. If you want 
rhythmbox (or any app using "bad" gstreamer plugins) to get the CD info, 
you'll either have to compile the source and configure it to use 
libmusicbrainz3 (the version rhythmbox supports that works correctly) or 
find a ppa or some other 3rd party repo that has the necessary support
