Most audio players on Linux are hideous.
Amarok is gross, rhythmbox isn't much better - the GUI's are just shameful. Neither can cope with gapless playback properly.
And the other apps are all "also rans".

Not at all happy with audio playback on Linux!

Aqualung is gapless - a key reason for its coming into existence according to the blurb.

I am not sure if Spotify should be in there (??). It is not really a traditional music player...but it can also play local music.

I do not agree that Sonata and MPD should be separate entries.

cmus as well. Although the latest Audacious is good too. They got rid of that retro winamp junk (at least it's not the default anymore) and now it fits in nicely with the Gnome desktop. Too bad cmus wan't on the list

cmus has been added.
Spotify does not fit in with this category.
