At current stage, I'm quite satisfied with Guayadeque, though it's still in active development and might encounter some other errors which I've yet to find out.

So far I feel it's better designed and more powerful than Banshee and Amarok. I can also view lyrics in quite a large window area, among other features available. It also has a nice built-in tag editor. I tried to edit the lyrics and cover art with Guayadeque, and opened up the saved file in a tag editor Kid3-qt, the edited tags were saved correctly. Further I used Kid3-qt to edit both lyrics and cover art and saved them into the mp3 file, opened up the file with Guayadeque and it showed up the edited tags.

It also claims to support a large music collection. Guayadeque, a nice music player and organizer to watch out. Hi, Robert, this must be a hot find item.
