Well I couldn't even get it to recognize any of my music files, much 
less play them.

And I find that RhythmBox has an incredibly obtuse interface. I was 
eventually able to create a Playlist consisting of only one album after 
realizing that the damn thing wants to dump all my music into one list. 
And I still have no idea which magic series of clicks and keypresses got 
it to actually play the music.

I am NOT impressed at the opacity of the interface. Nor am I impressed 
with the requirements of importing and creating a playlist for each 
album. Tedious boring work which computers never get tired of doing..

Anyone got any better ideas for a program which will deal with a tree of 
  composers, with albums as leaves underneath?


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
