I'll second that.  Using mpd has been quite nice.

Yeah, gmpc has grown a bit since I first tried it.  I also like ncmpc
(a curses based interface) and a home-brewed pygtk app that I wrote
originally as a better front-end to xmms (to work around the horrid
gtk1 xmms interface :).

I like being able to adjust the volume from anywhere I happen to be
sitting with my laptop.  I can be out on the deck and hear a song
through the window that demands to be heard -- with a little scroll I
can turn it up.
