Hello guys,
I’m looking for a music player, I have checked some wikis but none of those give me their personal opinion of the music players thus I would like to know your experience. Currently I am using musikcube as I just though it would look since since it can use your terminal colorscheme and I have also used Cue.
Anyway, what music player would you recommend for someone who has thousands of songs and wishes to create playlists seamlessly. Thanks in advance

Edit: Gave most of your recommendations a fair shot. In the end I decided to go for MPD + Ymuse since it was exactly what I needed plus Ymuse is gtk so its automatically themed for me. Thank You All Guys!
fair to say I was Ymused…

    As any person that lives under a rock I barely blinked and everyone was using streaming services while I kept half of my hard drive full of pirated mp3 and never got to understand why people fell for that trap. I really like MPD, though when it goes yolo it’s a pain in the butt to re-configure it.

    I used ncmpcpp for like 10 years (or even more, but I can’t recall) but only a couple years ago re-discovered ncmpc and liked its minimalism (compared to ncmpcpp, that is). Even wrote a couple stupid patches to change the default progress bar.

    But a few weeks ago learned about mmtc. Which is written in rust.

    I didn’t have rust installed and the 12 GB of RAM weren’t enough to compile rust in my Gentoo box so I used this as an excuse to buy more RAM. And then compiled rust and it took a bit more of an hour so I could use this shiny “new” MPD player. Only to discover its so minimal it doesn’t have an database update function - the author literally says you have to set a key combination to call mpc to do so.
