MOC, the Midnight Commander of audio players, more lightweight than the GUI players mentioned here. Should be a close race this year with Clementine and 2010 winner Amarok being the main contenders.

Banshee worked straight out of the box with no need to consult help files. I've been a long time paying user of Mediamonkey on windows but can't get it to work nicely with any of the distros I've tried. Hohum.

I have been really liking Aqualung lately. It is a fairly full featured music player that is very light on resources.

Cmus

For years I've used Rhythmbox but recently I've discovered the joy of using Cmus. In reality all I want a music player to do is play music and Cmus does it better and stays out of the way. For all other tasks there is a little thing called VLC but that is a whole different category all together.

Clementine is the best, clutter-free music player (reminds me of foobar2k in windows).
If I could I'd give amarok,banshee and rhythymbox all -ve votes - just dislike their interfaces so much.

VLC is video/audio player, not just audio. Its in the 'video' section.

Goes to show how different peoples opinions can be.

I'm a long time foobar2000 user, and I find the clememtine (and amarok 1 which its based on IIRC) interface way to busy.
