What is, or do you mean by 'meh'?(English is not my native language)
Why do you need a skin for an audio player?
Your point of view is well understood. Why can people not understand that Foobar2000 puts a premium on functionality

Try XMPlay. It has less bloat than Winamp and it's simpler to modify via skins than foobar2000. There are many nice skins available for it.fb2k does have a learning curve when you're modifying it to your needs; for me, it was worth the time spent.
Of course you are trolling or did you write the same posting in the forums of other players too. You are able to know that foobar2000 is using the windows theme of the os on which it is running: is windows 7 looking like the 90s for you? Probably yes! Are the most programs under Mac or Linux looking for you like stone age just because they us the os theme and not some shitty selfcreated ui? Probably yes! I really don't care about your opinion but why do you think it could be an interesting message that you are going to stick with media monkey and its crappy user interface that indeed look cumbersome like nothing else? If you don't like to use foobar2000 so that's ok because it was not written for you!
I don't think I am incorrect stating that Foobar is visually not very attractive, and that trying to adjust this with or without 'skins' is very cumbersome.

It plays audio files well and lets you manage huge media libraries, rip CDs, en/decode files etc.
